School LAND Trust is a program established by the Utah Legislature to distribute the “annual dividend” funds from the State School Fund to all public schools in the state. All schools are required to have a Community Council / School LAND Trust Committee, which can be the Governing Board or an elected group of parents, teachers, and administration that will prepare an annual plan to address the schools greatest academic needs.

If you would like to know more about the School Land Trust Program please visit the School LAND Trust website.

Carson Smith Scholarship Notice

Child Find Notice

The Maria Montessori Academy’s Special Education Department is attempting to identify all children with disabilities who are currently enrolled at the school.

If a child is having significant difficulty with vision, hearing, speech and/or behavior or is experiencing slow development atypical for his/her age, physical impairments or learning difficulty then he/she may be a child with a disability. Disabilities that could interfere with education include: autism, deaf-blindness, deafness, emotional disturbance, hearing impairment, intellectual disabilities, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, specific learning disabilities, communication disorders, traumatic brain injury and visual impairment. Federal law mandates the provision of free educational programs and/or services for such persons.

If you know of a current Maria Montessori Academy student who might qualify for Special Education services, including a student suspected of having a disability even though he/she is advancing from grade to grade, please contact Maria Montessori Academy’s Special Education Department.

Maria Montessori Academy participates in the Utah Student Data Privacy Alliance (USPA). The USPA is a collaboration of the Utah State Board of Education and Local Education Agencies (Maria Montessori Academy) that share the common concerns regarding student privacy. The goal of the USPA is to set standards of both practice and expectations around student privacy such that all parties involved have a common understanding of expectations.
