State Board of Education to hold stakeholder engagement events for school accountability redesign

The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) will be holding four stakeholder engagement events to give interested members of the public additional opportunities to provide input around the school accountability redesign in Utah, and to provide information on the results of the recent accountability redesign survey that was distributed last month. Public feedback at these events is important because it will be considered by policy makers as the state seeks to build a new accountability system for schools in Utah.

Two of the events will be streamed virtually, and two of the events will be held in person. Those who are interested are encouraged to attend one of the following events:

  • March 1, 4 – 5:30 p.m. (Virtual Event)
  • March 3, 6:30 – 8 p.m. (Virtual Event)
  • April 19, 6:30 – 8 p.m. (Washington School District Office, 121 W. Tabernacle St., St. George)
  • April 20, 6:30 – 8 p.m. (Murray School District Office, 5102 S. Commerce Dr., Murray)

Information about the accountability redesign, the locations of the in-person events, and a link to register for virtual events can be found at the link below. Any person in need of accessibility support, such as sign language, should contact Superintendent of Student Learning, Darin Nielsen, by April 5 so that the proper accommodations can be made.
