Fox Hollow Elementary is located in West Jordan Utah. The Fox Hollow Community strongly supports education and parents are highly involved with the school. Fox Hollow teachers are dedicated to see that students develop academically, socially, and emotionally.
Fox Hollow’s Mission is to improve learning through collaborative experiences, clear learning objectives, and authentic learning opportunities.
We believe and are willing to commit to the following:
- All students can learn at high levels
- If we are to ensure that all students learn at high levels then we must guarantee fidelity in our classroom instruction and provide quality first time instruction to all students.
- Every teacher student and parent is clear on knowledge skills, and expectations students are expected to acquire in each grade level and unit of instruction.
- If we are to be a school where teachers and students are clear on the knowledge, skills, and expectation students must acquire in each grade level and unit of instruction, then we must agree to develop a guaranteed curriculum and commit to implement that curriculum in our classrooms.
- The learning of each student is monitored on a timely basis. When students experience difficulty, the school has structures in place to provide students with additional time and support for learning.
- If we are to be a school that ensures high levels of learning for all students, then we must monitor each student’s learning on a timely basis using a variety of assessment strategies and create systems to ensure they receive additional time and support as soon as they experience difficulty in their learning.
- We support learning through working collaboratively. Students at this school are every teacher’s responsibility.
- If we work collaborative to ensure each student is learning then we celebrate success and find ways to support learning for all students. We strive for at least one year’s growth for each student.
- We are committed to establishing effective communication .
- If we are committed to effective communication then we will post weekly grades in language arts, math, and science on Skyward. We will make positive contact with parents as well as contact about possible problems in a timely manner.
- The school environment will be respectful, nurturing, welcoming and safe.
- If school is respectful, nurturing, welcoming, and safe then we will identify, define, and teach the positive character traits of caring, respect, responsibility, integrity, and citizenship.

UCAS and SCHOOL GRADING Accountability Reports
The Utah Comprehensive Accountability System (UCAS) Report and the SCHOOL GRADING Report have been created to assist in evaluating the academic performance of Utah schools in language arts, math, and science. The UCAS and SCHOOL GRADING Accountability Reports are based solely on schools’ performance on end-of-year assessments in language arts, math, and science, and on graduation rate (high schools only). No other aspects of school performance are considered in either the UCAS or SCHOOL GRADING Report.
Criterion Referenced Tests (CRT)
The Core Criterion Referenced Tests (CRTs) are administered at the end of each school year to help assess how well students have mastered the standards and objectives set forth in the State of Utah Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science core curricula. Student achievement is reported as the percent of students reaching “proficient” by earning a Level 3 or Level 4 performance on the Core CRT.
