si·lent /sīlənt/ • Unspoken • Unexpressed • Unvoiced Through a collaborative effort from Tooele County School District and Vocational Rehabilitation a student is no longer silent. Robbie Cox currently works at the Tooele County School District offices and is non-verbal. With deliberate and purposeful planning Robbie has been supported on the job through the Tooele County School District’s transition team that consists of teachers, para-educators, and related service providers. These team members assisted Robbie in developing communication and social skills allowing him to make voiced choices, express himself through jokes, and have two-way conversations with co-workers using a communication device provided through special education.

Accountability Reports: Accountability determinations for Utah schools and districts are based on student outcomes and growth. Two major reports are created to differentiate the performance of schools and districts across the state. These reports assist in evaluating performance in reading, language arts, mathematics and science. However, it is important to note that not all grades and subjects are included due to the fact that not all grade levels and courses have statewide end-of-year assessments; Kindergarten though 2nd grade, social studies, world languages, advanced math such as calculus, health/PE, and the arts are examples.
