Our overarching goal is to support and monitor student learning through partnerships with our schools.  We strive to provide educators and district leaders with the best analysis and information regarding student achievement.  

Our office provides leadership and technical expertise for the district in the areas of State assessments, district assessments, student achievement, and accountability.

We disseminate this actionable information to school educators, district administrators, the Board of Education, school community councils, and the public.  Our information supports student-centered data-driven decisions by building leadership teams and district leadership.

Our office is responsible for ensuring compliance with state, and federal testing requirements (e.g., RISE, K-3 Reading Acadience), accountability requirements and Canyons assessment program (e.g., Acadience, Reading Inventory, READ 180, Math Inventory).

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
