Policies & Procedures

NDPA is a Public Charter School

All NDPA teachers hold valid Utah Educator Licenses or equivalent as authorized by the Utah State Office of Education and are highly qualified for their teaching assignments.

Admission to NDPA is done through a lottery system. A charter school is part of the public education system and must be open to all students without discrimination. If the number of students applying to enroll in a charter school exceeds the capacity of the school, those students are chosen at random from among the applicants.

Parent involvement is a crucial element in student success. NDPA encourages families to volunteer when they can. One of the greatest differences between a charter school and a public school is the relationship between the families and the school. Our parents provide special activities, assistance in the classrooms, and extra help with school activities. Parents are the backbone of NDPA.

The parent organization at NDPA is "POET." Just like a PTA or PTO, our POET helps organize special activities for our school and advocate for our students. All parents of NDPA students are members, and no dues are required.

NDPA has a dress code policy. Parents are notified of uniform requirements prior to enrollment.


Within the state of Utah there are three types of educator licenses, these consist of Professional, Associate and Local Educational Agency (LEA) specific licenses. NDPA employees educators of all three types of licenses and a variety of educational endorsements. For the SY2022-23 the breakout of our licensed educators is 66.90% Professional Licenses, 19.01% LEA licenses, 12.50% Associate Licenses and 1.59% Non-Licensed.
