NSSD Vision

 

Our Mission: Creating conditions for learning, so all students can succeed.

Our Vision for key stakeholders:

  • Teachers - create a nurturing learning environment of active engaged learners, regularly attend school, and are a good example for their students through professional and ethical behavior. Teachers also plan and carry out effective instruction using a variety of learning activities so all students can learn at their individual level.
  • Students - pay attention to their teacher, attend school regularly, and complete assignments. Students also ask clarifying questions, complete their homework, and get along with others.
  • Parents - ensure students come to school regularly, ready to learn. Parents also help with homework, read daily with their child and support teachers, coaches, directors and officials in conversations at home.
  • School District Staff - are technically competent, trustworthy and friendly. These employees are also hard working, good examples for students.
  • School leaders - create a shared vision, understand student needs and are helpful. Leaders are good examples for students and solve problems by collaborating with parents, teachers and the community.
  • Goals 2015

  • Instructional Goal: At least 90% of teachers will meet or exceed an effective rating on the Utah Teaching Standards as measured by the North Sanpete School District Teacher Evaluation System (NSES). A percentage of teachers reaching effective or higher will be reported annually.
  • Student Achievement Goal: All students will show improvement including at least a year of growth or reach their IEP Goals each year as measured by SLOs, SAGE, DIBELS, WIDA, ACT, graduation rates, etc. Each school will report their success annually.

    NSSD Stats

     

    Dear Parents,

     

    Each school year it is necessary for parents to update their student registration forms. It is CRITICAL for school administration to have the most current data for your students in order to keep your students safe and to keep parents informed. In addition, students must have parent authorization for our Student Internet Acceptable Use Policy to access school computers each year. This authorization is completed in the registration process.

     

    Please update your student’s forms no later than August 1, 2016.  You may access our Online Forms registration system from home. An ‘Online Registration Help Document’ is available on our district website at www.nsanpete.org under the Parent Tab to guide you. 

     

    Following are the necessary steps to complete this process:

    1. Navigate to NSSD PowerSchool website at https://ps.nsanpete.org and login to your parent account. If you have not yet created a PowerSchool account, please contact the school secretary or Amanda Morley at our district office at 435-462-2485.

    2. At the top of your PowerSchool sign-in page, click on ‘To register your student for the 2016-2017 school year, click here’.  Follow the instructions on the ‘Students and Forms’ page.

    3. A confirmation email will be sent to your email account upon completion.

     

    If you do not have internet access, you can still register in person. Someone will be available to help you through the process during the summer registration dates (see dates below).   

     

    We appreciate your help with this important process.  Please do not hesitate to contact your school office or Amanda Morley at our district office at 435-462-2485 if you have any questions.
