  • District scores above average on SAGE tests
     
    Davis School District’s overall scores were above average on the Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence (SAGE) tests. District and schoolwide results were released this week.

    The District average was 46.4 percent in language arts, 43.6 percent in math and 49.1 percent in science. The state average was 41.7 percent, 38.7 percent and 43.7 percent respectively.

    In the coming weeks, parents will be able to access their individual student scores through the parent portal of MyDSD. It is anticipated that teachers will be able to talk to parents about the SAGE results in a future parent-teacher conference.

    Additionally, in mid-December the state will release Utah Comprehensive Accountability System reports which will give more information about schoolwide performance.

    Students in grades 3 through 12 took the SAGE tests for the first time this spring. Because the computer-adaptive tests are new and were aligned with more rigorous learning standards, scores cannot be compared to last year’s Criterion Referenced Tests. Lower proficiencies were expected, not because of poorer performance, but because of higher standards.

    Two Davis School District teachers were recently honored with an Excellence in Teaching Award by the Utah Education Association.

    Allred’s lessons reach outside of the four walls of her classroom. For instance, her student government students interview veterans for Veterans Day.
