Utah State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Annual Report, 1992-93.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
The 1992-93 annual report describes Utah's progress in implementing the Utah State Public Education Strategic Plan. The plan is designed to guide schools to improvement. It seeks to educate Utah citizens, give students learning and occupational skills, develop students, and offer schools flexibility in meeting goals. Part of the strategic plan is assessing students' progress. In 1992, students in grades 5, 8, and 11 were tested. Evaluations were done of the effectiveness of various school programs, including the career-ladder program, year-round schools, site-based decision-making, and other programs. Efforts to build equity and opportunity in mathematics and science, limited-English speaking students, rural schools, and other areas are reviewed. Steps were also taken to improve school safety and combat student drug and alcohol abuse. School-to-work efforts through business-community-school partnerships are also reviewed. Hands-on learning programs were stressed for basic subjects. Forms of electronic education such as distance learning and satellite services are reviewed. Schools also worked toward integrating services for students at risk. Use of applied technology continued to expand. Efforts were made to enhance teaching as a profession. Changing financial and demographic information about schools was also monitored. And education support services were reviewed. (JPT)
