Education Specialist – Jason Hansen

Although not a native of Southern Utah, Jason (Mr. Hansen) spent most of his life amongst the red rocks of Utah’s Dixie and caught the theater bug while attending Dixie High School in St. George. He attended Dixie College on scholarship where he was actively involved in all aspects of the theater both on and off stage, earning his Associate of Arts degree with an emphasis in theater and the performing arts, and received awards for Best Supporting Actor and Excellence in Technical Theater.

After Graduating from Dixie College, Jason spent two years in Estonia as a Missionary shortly after the breakup of the Soviet Union and witnessed the final withdrawal of the Soviet military from that country. Once back on US soil, Jason completed two bachelor’s degrees in Elementary Education, Special Education and Social Sciences Secondary Education and later a Masters degree in Education Administration through Southern Utah University. Jason has worked as a Teacher for over 18 years in both the private and public sectors including charter schools and Private Therapeutic Boarding Schools. Additionally, he operates a business as an independent consultant for the residential building industry.

When Jason isn’t working, his amazing wife of 19 years, Amanda, and their 5 beautiful children can often be found singing and performing, hiking and camping throughout Utah. Jason is exceptionally grateful to his family for their support and the opportunity to work as a site coordinator with these awesome teachers, parents and students. He looks forward to many new adventures as his family is now “back” in northern Utah and the beautiful mountains of the Wasatch Front.

PARENT MEETINGS AND STUDENT EDUCATION PLANS

Education Specialists serve as a guide and support throughout the education process. Families meet with their Educational Specialist regularly to discuss student as they progress toward their goals.  Please keep in mind that this communication with your ES is essential and a requirement for participation in this program. Please show that you value our program by having a truly effective conversation about the academic progress of your student with your Educational Specialist. Here is the Monthly Parent Touchpoints Schedule we will follow for these discussions.

MONTHLY PARENT TOUCHPOINTS

At the beginning of the school year, you will create an individualized Student Education Plan (SEP) with your Education Specialist. Your student’s SEP will outline the curriculum your student will be using and your goals for the school year.

DRESS CODE

Our students will be having so much fun at Epic Day – and sometimes fun gets energetic! We have found that proper dress and grooming positively affect the behavior of students, so we would like them to look neat and clean. We also want all toes to stay safe! Shoes must cover the entire foot and be worn in and outside the school. No Heelys are permitted. Students should not wear hats inside the school, but they can wear hats outside, so long as we can see their faces.

DROP-OFF

Morning Meeting: 9:00 am PLEASE enter the parking lot from 2200 West. Drive past building and turn left in the parking lot. You will drop off at the curb by the front door. If you wish to park, please do so on the side of the building so you can use the sidewalk next to the building. We do not want students/families crossing the parking lot.  You will exit the parking lot onto South Jordan Parkway.

Please have students there on-time (which is between 8:45 – 9:00 am). Morning meeting is when your child’s Educational Specialist celebrates student accomplishments and recognizes birthdays. The ES will also build our culture of shared experiences based by recognizing positive behavior and helping students take personal accountability for their own actions. We appreciate you bringing your student on time so they can be part of our awesome Canyon Grove DE team-building activities!

RECESS

Recess: 12:00-12:20 pm Students play first and then eat so they do not rush through eating to get to their recess activities. Recess is held indoors. They can choose to play quiet games or join the larger-group, interactive fun!

LUNCH

Lunch: 12:20-12:40 pm Lunch is always a favorite time of the day for most students.

Home Lunch: Please send your child with a lunch from home that can be eaten within the given time frame. Also, send only water for them to drink and food that does not need to be reheated. Please let them know that they will be eating what you send with them in their OWN lunch.    There is no bartering lunch items.

PICK-UP

Clean up: 3:00-3:15 pm

We are responsible to clean up the building from 3:00 – 3:15 pm. We all made the mess together, so we all get to clean it up together. Because of this, there is no pick up between 3:00 – 3:15, because we are all helping.   Thank you for your help with this.

Pick up: 3:15 pm

Please be there to pick up your child at 3:15. Most dance classes begin shortly after our Epic Day ends. It is important that we are all out of there on time. If there is an emergency and you will be late, please contact the ES.

Please ONLY be late if there is a true emergency.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • Pick-up Authorization: If someone other than the parent/guardian is picking up, please notify the ES before clean-up begins.  Make sure they bring ID.
  • Attendance: If your student misses an Epic Day, please email your Educational Specialist to excuse their absence.

Discovery Day: Monday

12:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Discovery Day T-shirts can be purchased at the front office.  They are required for all students and volunteers attending Discovery Day activities.

Signups for Discovery Day are posted prior to each session.

Please note that bus pick up/drop-off sites are not always at the Epic day locations. The bus will leave from each pickup site at 11:20 AM and return around 3:00 PM unless otherwise stated in the sign-up. If you miss the bus you are responsible for your student’s transportation. DO NOT stop the bus if it is pulling out and you are late. If the bus is moving you have missed it and need to transport your students to the location. If they miss the bus one direction they can still ride the bus back.   More info
