Southland Elementary Visit
I spent lunch today at Southland Elementary. I enjoyed visiting with all the teachers there. I was also able to talk to the new student teachers. One item that came up there was the SB 150 requiring a specific reading test for grades 1-3 prior to mid-year. The Literacy Coaches have spent since before Winter Break going to all the elementary schools to do this testing. By law, principals must send a letter to parents of students who are not on grade level telling parents of available interventions and then implementing those interventions. Go to Utah.gov to see the law.
