This school was disappointing, glad weve moved to the junior high.

The school psychologist Stacie Passey is the absolute worst school psychologist in the entire Davis school district. You ask her to evaluate your child based on what you agreed upon in their 504 plan and she completely violates ada law by evaluating your child for things that you never requested....then when you call her out on it, she acts clueless. She is incompetent, unprofessional and a disgrace to her profession. This woman should never be allowed around school children, let alone have her own. I cannot wait to get my child the heck away from her. Thank God she's been on leave from the school, my child is somewhat back to normal without her seeing her weekly. Hopefully she won't be back in 2017. Here's a hint. Fire Passey, she's a huge liability to the school district with how she treats students, berates parents and does everything in her power to destroy the self esteem of kids like my daughter.

My child was in the 4th grade at Sand Springs and I have been so disappointed in the useless testing they put these kids through on a weekly basis. What is the point? Some of the teachers have been quite good, and others just need to retire already. As of late, they have more poor teachers than high quality ones. The principal is a product of her environment. It is no wonder that this school has a hard time keeping quality teachers. This school has been known in parent circles in Layton as a school that has a reputation for a high turn over rate and disgruntled past employees.

I have experienced a level of incompetency at this school that is unimaginable. The administration treats parents poorly unless you have money to donate to their current fundraiser. If you are not lds at this school...this is not the school for your children. If your child is on an 504 plan or iep plan. This is not the school for you. The resource teacher is unorganized and the 504 plans are pointless, when most of her students score just as poorly at the beginning as they do at the end of the year. The school psychologist is a twit, rarely shows up to 504 meetings and when she does...smiles at you constantly like she just popped a happy pill. It's creepy. It took two years to get my child intervention because she had no idea what she was testing for...I had to see a neuro psych to get my child diagnosed dyslexic. Thank god my children have moved on to legacy Jr high. We are now playing catch up in school because this school refuses to use the correct intervention for its students with sld's. I want to warn anyone who purchases a home in sand springs territory....you may have a beautiful home, but your children's education will suffer until they get to junior high at legacy. Please check out private schools or charter schools in the area. Syracuse arts school....is fantastic. Buyer beware of this school.

If your child has psychological services at Sand Springs Elem. with the school psychologist, you should consider outside therapy before allowing her to evaluate or counsel your child. She has shown extremely poor judgement. She causes more psychological harm to her students than help. She continuously uses coercion with her students to get them to say things that justify her own negative personal agenda. She does not take the Ethical principles of Psychologists and code of conduct seriously. I am very sad for any child who is counseled by this individual, she clearly has personal issues. I was warned about her from other parents in the school who felt she discriminated against non lds families, and created issues where their were none to begin with. I wish I had listened to their warning, this woman has done great damage to my child ( and others), which is irreversible and now requires outside help. I have lost my faith in this school and trust in this particular individual. Very disappointing experience. ( posted this info on the other schools site that she works for) interesting comments at the other school as well)
