The Utah State Board of Education is requesting feedback from the public (parent, student, educator, administrator, community & business members) regarding the redesign of Utah’s school accountability system. 

The Utah State Legislature and the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) are partnering to reexamine the state’s school accountability system. The current Utah School Accountability System was established through S.B. 220 during the 2017 legislative session, prior to the advancement of the Personalized, Competency-Based Learning and Portrait of a Graduate initiatives. The pandemic has highlighted the dependency of the school accountability system on access to state assessment results. The state is seeking to build a new accountability system to be:

  • Inclusive of the additional initiatives
  • More comprehensive in evaluation criteria
  • Aligned with and supportive of continuous school improvement efforts for all schools

For this work to be successful, the state needs to hear from the public on the information needed to better understand school quality. Please consider taking this survey to provide your input on the future of school accountability in Utah. The state will also offer both virtual and in-person opportunities to engage further along in the process. Thank you.
