Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence (SAGE)

The first session of the Utah PTA Advocacy Conference was a wonderful presentation by Dr. Judy Park, the Utah State Office of Education Associate Superintendent/Student Services and Federal Programs, regarding SAGE.  We hope for all who attended the opening session that the information given was informative and helpful.  As you have discussions with parents please share the information you received, it will help all parents better see the areas of success for their child and help them know what will assist their child in the learning process.

As requested at the conference, Dr. Judy Park has shared her powerpoint with Utah PTA and it is attached below.

To assist those who were not able to attend advocacy conference here is a little information regarding SAGE:
