FOR THE CHILDREN
To be enrolled in a Utah school, a child must be at least 5 years old by Sept. 2 of the school year. Check with the school for requirements.
In 2010, Utah, along with the majority of other states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity adopted Common Core State Standards that provide a consistent set of educational expectations for students, regardless of ZIP code. When a family moves, a student’s education is often disrupted because the student may be forced to repeat material or learn at a different level at the new school. With common standards across states, this disruption will be reduced — of particular interest to military families. At present, national Common Core State Standards exist only for English language arts and mathematics, with science and social studies in development, though Utah has state standards across the full curriculum.
