School Report Card
At Early Light Academy, our mission is to provide a high quality education. We believe parents are critical partners in the success of our school. Just as your child’s report card shows how your child is performing, the school’s accountability report card issued by the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) illustrates Early Light Academy’s performance over the past school year in multiple areas.
With our continued implementation of the RISE assessment and benchmark system (Readiness Improvement Success Empowerment), we have continued our trend of consistently improving in areas of academic performance. This trend includes the following: achieving proficiency above the Utah state average for performance in Science scores, as well as continuing our current trajectory of growth in the area of Language Arts. Our teachers continue to look for opportunities to lead in areas of classroom development; such as participation in early training with the SEED Standards and Open Ed Science, which prepares our students to access higher level content and prepare them for college and career readiness.
In the area of Mathematics, Early Light Academy continues to be a leader as we look for new ways to reach today’s generation of learners through targeted small group instruction and an after-school math tutoring program that targets small group reteaching in previously missed foundational skills.
A newer feature of the report card is a focus on Early Literacy. With the continued adoption of the Early Literacy Software Grant’s implementation of the Lexia program in the K-4 building, Early Light Academy has 54% of students reading at grade level, beating the State Average of students reading on grade level by more than 10%; while continuing to achieve above the State average. In addition, students needing to close the grade level gap in reading are making Typical or Above Typical Progress at 60%. We continue to support our teachers and specialists in meeting the diverse needs of incoming students through professional development on evidence based practices, such as differentiation strategies.
How the school measurement score is calculated:
It is an exciting time at Early Light Academy, and we feel confident that our students continue to be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead… and beyond.
