Backman Identified as an Exemplary School!

Backman was identified as an Exemplary School by the Utah State Board of Education for our work with English learners. There were 8 schools recognized Statewide! Our students showed exceptional growth and achievement through their hard work, the support of amazing teachers and a sharp focus on language development! Well done, Backman Lions!

L3Harris Grant

Last week we were honored to receive a check for $30,431 from #L3Harris Technologies! The Social Impact Grant came from our local office and company headquarters. We will use it to replace our aging classroom sets of iPads used for lower grade online academic programs. Thank you @L3Harris Technologies and LEAD, you are an amazing partner!
