We Care

Mountain West Montessori Academy’s Special Education Department is attempting to identify all children with disabilities who are enrolled at the school.


Mountain West Montessori Academy (MWMA) is required to give public notice before destroying special education records for students who received special education services while attending the school. These records are held at MWMA until the student transfers to a different school or until services are no longer needed for educational purposes.

Records that are no longer needed to provide educational services are destroyed by the school two years after a student has been found ineligible for special education services, three years after the student graduated from high school, or three years after the student turns 22.

If you would like copies of your personal records before they are destroyed, please call the Special Education Director before the last day of the school year at 801-566-6962. Records will be destroyed within one week of the end of the school year.

Child Find Notice

If a child is having significant difficulty with vision, hearing, speech and/or behavior or is experiencing slow development atypical for his/her age, physical impairments or learning difficulty then he/she may be a child with a disability. Disabilities that could interfere with education include: autism, deaf-blindness, deafness, emotional disturbance, hearing impairment, intellectual disabilities, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, specific learning disabilities, communication disorders, traumatic brain injury and visual impairment. Federal law mandates the provision of free educational programs and/or services for such persons.

If you know of a student who might qualify for Special Education services, including a student suspected of having a disability even though he/she is advancing from grade to grade, please contact our Special Education Department.
