Policies & Procedures

Student Accelerated Learning

Hawthorn Academy will be using the ESSER III funds being awarded through the state in the following ways:

  • 20% of the funds will be used to address student learning and accelerate student achievement to regain ground lost in learning. This will be accomplished through additional support in grades to engage students in learning and provide additional support through both certified teachers and support staff in order to help students in small group instruction. 
  • 80% of the funds will be used to upgrade wireless technology, technology devices, equipment and services to ensure the health and safety of students. 

If you would like to provide any feedback on the plan for Hawthorn Academy, please feel free to contact our Superintendent, Dr Stensrud.

The RISE test is Utah's standardized state assessment, and replaces the SAGE test. The RISE is administered to Utah students in grades 3-8, and 9th graders take the Utah Aspire Plus test. Our students also take RISE benchmark and interim tests during the school year. 

Please fill out this form and return to your campus principal to opt your student out of 2022-2023 RISE or Utah Aspire Plus testing.

Hawthorn Academy is chartered through the Utah State Board of Education.

The school charter documents detail our program of instruction and school goals. The policies and bylaws contained in Hawthorn Academy's original charter application are subject to change by the governing board.

The Utah State Board of Education reports each year on how schools, districts, and the State are performing on important indicators. School report cards are intended to inform parents, educators, and community stakeholders as they work collaboratively to achieve student success. 

At the core of the Utah School Report Cards is the belief that all students can grow, and all schools can improve. Included in the school report card is student performance on state standardized assessments.  

You can view school report cards, including testing data, by District, West Jordan campus, or South Jordan campus.
