Family Handbook

Family Guides

As requested, the USBE Teaching and Learning team have finished resources for use with parents to help them to know the critical knowledge and skills acquired at each grade level/span.  

Families are important partners in achieving the Utah State Board of Education’s vision that “each student is prepared to succeed and lead by having knowledge and skills to learn, engage civically, and lead meaningful lives.” 

The purpose of these resources is to help families better understand what their children should learn, when a child may need more help or when a child would benefit from extra challenges. By using these resources families may find more ways to advance their child’s learning at home while encouraging growth in their communication, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. 

The resources can be found here.  Please share with your local communities.

Please send completed forms to:

TItle I Plan

Purpose: A Title I Local Education Agency (LEA) Plan lays out the educational objectives for the district/charter school. These objectives, in turn, serve as goals for the use of funds in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Title I application. The purpose of this document is to assist LEAs in preparing plans and to facilitate the application approval process in the UT Grants System.

Requirements: Submission of a Title I LEA Plan is required by ESSA. The specifics of the plan are defined in Section 1112. All LEAs requesting Title I federal funding must have an approved Title I LEA Plan on file in the UT Grants System. The State educational agency (SEA) shall approve a LEA’s plan only if the SEA determines that the plan—

  • (i)  provides that schools served under this part substantially help children served under this part meet the challenging State academic standards; and
  • (ii)  meets the requirements of this section.

Here is a copy of the 2021-2022 Title I Plan.

Please note, the policies and bylaws contained in SAAs original charter application are subject to change by the governing board. See the current SAA Policies and Procedures Manual (above) for the most recent updates.

Syracuse Arts Academy participates in the Utah Student Data Privacy Alliance (USPA).  The USPA is a collaboration of the Utah State Board of Education and Local Education Agencies that share common concerns around student privacy. The goal of the USPA is to set standards of both practice and expectations around student privacy such that all parties involved have a common understanding of expectations.
