Student Progress

We are all concerned about students not finishing classes in a timely manner, being behind for their graduation requirements, or not meeting the 1.5 credit minimum for each term. Many people in and out of our schools are trying to find ways to help. We sent out 1st term data in a letter this week (12/7/2020) to talk about how our Innovations' students are doing and to offer some ideas to help them improve.

Please click https://innovations.slcschools.org/academics/innovations-course-options/ for the letter in Spanish and English and click https://innovations.slcschools.org/our-school/class-meeting-schedule/documents/20202021-class-meeting-schedule/english/ to view our live class meetings. Please reach out to us if you have any questions. Go Inno! pam.pedersen@slcschools.org

WEEKLY UPDATES

Weekly Update Sent 2/26/2021

Parent-Teacher conference was great. It was so nice to talk and plan with our students and parents/guardians. It’s the end of the month and that much closer to the end of the school year. Continue working hard and get ready for term 4. We just have a couple of reminders about upcoming events.

Welcome back to the building: Students have been attending school in person for the last several weeks for two days a week. It has been going great! We are planning to invite students to attend all four days (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday) if they wish to attend. We still have virtual options for students that will continue, but students who need to catch up or get ahead with their classes will be able to do that better in the building. Please let me know what you think: pam.pedersen@slcschools.org 

Explore SLCC: Are you interested in attending Salt Lake Community College? Would you like to learn more about the college? SLCC is hosting their Explore SLCC Tuesday, March 2nd from 5-6:30 pm. This will be a virtual open house to explore their academic program, students' success resources, and take a tour of the campus. To learn more about it and how to register please click https://slcc.secure.force.com/EventListing/?eventId=7011H000001IUrK

School Virtual Assembly: We have our monthly assembly this coming Wednesday, March 3rd5 at 11 am with a guest speaker from Save a Heart Utah. The Zoom link can be found https://slcschools-org.zoom.us/j/3504659271#success. We hope all students can attend.

Digital Learning Day: On Friday, March 5th  all students will be working from home for a Digital Learning Day. The School will be closed to students with teachers doing PD.   

ACT Prep and Test: The ACT prep class is going on every Thursday and Friday. Students are welcome to attend both classes but only need to attend one per week. The class is held in Mr. Villate’s room and starts at 1:00 pm. Students need to bring a laptop with them to class. Students can also join the class via zoom. The code is found in their Counseling Class on Canvas in the modules under Test Prep.

On March 9th the ACT test will be given to all Juniors. Starting next week, March 1, all juniors will need to fill out their Pre-ACT paperwork. 

  1. Come pick up your instruction form in the front office between 8:00 am - 2:00 pm any day next week.
  2. Fill out your pre-ACT forms ONLINE at home or at school.
  3. These forms MUST be filled about before ACT testing day.
  4. Email Nicole.Kioa@slcschools.org if you have questions. 

 
ASPIRE End of Year Testing: All 9th and 10th graders will be taking the ASPIRE End of Year testing during the week of March 15th – 19th. Students should try to arrive at school by 8:30 am to start the test, though they can start it anytime they arrive if they are unable to be here that early. 

The test will be taken both days students are assigned to be in school based on their last name. Students can take all the tests in one day we would rather break up the tests between the two days. Students MUST take this test in the building. Safety measures are in place at Innovations and we feel confident that students can take the test safely in the building. If you have any questions or concerns about the tests please contact Dana Savage at Dana.Savage@slcschools.org or Phillip Howard at Phillip.Howard@slcschools.org

SCC: The next School Community council is Monday, March 8th at 5:30 pm via zoom. We encourage all the parents/guardians to attend this meeting to have a voice for what happens here at Innovations.  The agenda will be posted on the website soon. The link for the next meeting and minutes from previous meetings can be found https://innovations.slcschools.org/community/school-community-council-scc/.
