Carson Smith Scholarship

If you are the parent of a child with an IEP enrolled in a public school, the district is required by Utah Code Section 53A-1a-704 (10) to inform you of the availability of a scholarship to attend a private school through the Carson Smith Scholarship Program.

Procedural Safeguards

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Federal law concerning the education of students with disabilities, requires schools to provide parents of a child with a disability or adult students with disabilities with a notice containing a full explanation of the procedural safeguards available under the IDEA and U.S. Department of Education regulations.

Individualized Education Program

Please note that we retain students’¬†Individualized Education Program (IEP) files for only three (3) years post graduation. At the end of the third year, the IEP files will be destroyed (burned, shredded, or other permanent destruction methods). The adult student may visit the school to retrieve their IEP files in their entirety prior to the end of the third year.¬†
