Mountain View Recognized for Work with Multilingual Students
Leaders from the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) visited Mountain View Elementary's faculty meeting this week to inform the teachers and staff that Mountain View has been selected as a National ESEA Distinguished School.
Each year, USBE has the opportunity to nominate two Title I schools that are doing exemplary work to be recognized at the National Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Conference. One of the categories for recognition is for schools that are providing exemplary support to specific student groups. Dr. Christelle Estrada, the USBE Title III Specialist, has recommended that Mountain View be nominated for this recognition this year based on the growth of its multilingual students. USBE also recognizes that the school has a wonderful community center and an outstanding music program that is provided for students and families.
The National Association of ESEA State Program Administrators (NAESPA)—formerly the National Title I Association—has been selecting examples of superior, federally funded school programs for national recognition through the National ESEA Distinguished Schools program since 1996. These schools demonstrate a wide array of strengths, including team approaches to teaching and learning, focused professional development opportunities for staff, individualized programs for student success, and strong partnerships between the school, parents, and the community.
Congratulations to everyone at Mountain View Elementary!
