Salt Lake (Clearfield, Kearns, Park City and South Salt Lake), Utah
The GLR Campaign recognizes Salt Lake (Clearfield, Kearns, Park City and South Salt Lake), Utah, as a 2017 Pacesetter for demonstrating exemplary work in aspects of the Campaign’s framework for success, scale and sustainability, by driving with data and prioritizing children and families who are especially vulnerable.
Using the Results-Based Accountability framework, the coalition has selected eight community-level outcomes for improvement, and has developed core indicators to measure results for each, along with tools for collecting and analyzing data for continuous improvement. Salt Lake is also making efforts to give priority to children and families who are especially vulnerable, by adapting a full-service school model for implementation in two housing complexes. Especially impressive is the coalition’s focus on the needs of immigrant and refugee students and their families.
Family liaisons conduct home visits to help families access needed resources, learn to navigate the educational system and become involved in their children’s educational success.
