SETDA announced Mountain Heights Academy located in West Jordan, Utah as the 2017 Student Voices Award Winner. SETDA recognized Mountain Heights Academy for leveraging technology to improve educational experiences and achievement for their students. Mountain Heights is the first secondary school worldwide to develop its own curriculum as open educational resource content. Teachers create courses, invite students to participate in the design process, teach using the courses and publicly release the content to benefit students across the globe.
In addition to this honor, SETDA awarded Mountain Heights Academy the Elsie Brumback Scholarship, which supports sending a delegation of students & staff to present during the Education Forum at the annual SETDA Leadership Summit in October.
