This summer, Ann Peterson, JJHS history teacher, will travel to Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey, to attend a weeklong professional development seminar entitled “The Colonial Era.”
Led by renowned historian John Fea, Associate Professor of History at Messiah College, the rigorous seminar will explore the development of the American Colonies.
Mrs. Peterson will join other K–12 teachers, library educators, and National Park Service interpreters–representing 48 states and the District of Columbia, who were selected in a competitive process by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. Held at colleges and historic sites across the U.S. and the United Kingdom, the seminar will include daily programs with leading historians, visits to local historic sites, and hands-on work with primary source documents provided by their professor and the Gilder Lehrman Collection. Previously Ann has attended two other Gilder Lehrman Seminars; “The Rhetoric of American Democracy” at Harvard University, and “The Material Culture of the Civil War”, at Gettysburg College.
Juab School District and Central Utah Counseling Center have been working on a community collaborative effort to administer the SHARP survey in the spring of 2019. We are excited to begin this partnership. We recognize the issues that have been brought to light the past couple of months about the SHARP survey. Our efforts have been to overcome these challenges and perceptions to find better ways to serve our community. Our focus is on parental choice being the utmost priority for the administration in the spring of 2019. Parents of the students in Juab School District will have the opportunity to have their student participate in the survey by signing the opt-in form.

Open Enrollment Options for 2018-19
• All students residing in Juab School District are expected to attend the school in their boundaries established by the Board of Education. Please call the district at 435-623-1940 if you have questions about your boundary school. The district also recognizes and supports the concept of open enrollment. Based on individual school capacity, it is the practice of the district to allow open enrollment in grades where the average class size in kindergarten and first grade are 20 student or less, multi-age grade level class size is 22 students or less, and the average class size in all other grades is 25 students or less. If the average class size in a grade exceeds these numbers that grade is considered closed. A school is considered closed enrollment if the average class size as a school exceeds the district average at the elementary or secondary level. All Juab School District special education programs are closed at this time as enrollment thresholds have been exceeded. Schools and grades that are closed and open are noted below. Enrollment numbers will be updated on a regular basis.
