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 the introduction of the RISE assessment (Readiness Improvement Success Empowerment) in the 2018-2019 school year, 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 Language Arts and Science scores, as well as achieving commendable growth status in each of our measured areas. 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 co-teaching models, targeted small group instruction, and the flipped classroom model. A new feature of the report card this year is a focus on Early Literacy. With the adoption of the Early Literacy Software Grant’s implementation of the Lexia program in the K-4 building, Early Light Academy has 60% of students reading at grade level, beating the National Average of students reading on grade level by more than 20%; 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 an incredible 78%. 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.
