Boundary variance requests available
Students wishing to attend a school other than their boundary school during the 2017-18 school year can now file a variance request. Boundary variance requests will be accepted through Feb. 17.
Variance approvals are made based on district policy, which is available here. The district follows state law in its designation of open schools.
Schools above capacity are closed to open enrollment. The open/closed status of each school is available here. For open schools, if the number of applications exceeds the open enrollment spots, a random selection process is used.
Written notification will be sent to each applicant by March 31.
When the snow piles deep
As forecasts call for snow, the Davis School District reminds parents about procedures the district will use when it considers closing school for inclement weather.
The decision to close schools actually occurs in the early-morning hours when district snow plow drivers are out attempting to clear parking lots before students arrive at school.
If the superintendent decides to close schools, that decision will be made as early as possible and before school buses hit the roadways. In the event of a closure, the district will contact all area radio and TV stations to spread the word that schools are closed. It will also be posted on the district's website, Facebook and Twitter accounts.
The stations will only be notified when schools close. They will not be contacted when schools remain open.
If schools close because of weather, the school day, by state law, must be made up.
Parents are also reminded that they may keep their student at home anytime they feel it is unsafe for their student to travel to school. Arrangements will then need to be made with the teacher for makeup work.
Board seeks comment on calendar proposal
The Board of Education of the Davis School District is seeking comment on the proposed 2017-18 school year calendar.
The draft calendar is similar to the calendar adopted in the 2006-07 school year. Due to public input, this calendar starts a bit later and includes shorter breaks.
The traditional nine-month calendar begins Wednesday, Aug. 23, and ends Friday, June 1. It includes a two-day fall recess; a three-day Thanksgiving recess; a winter recess that runs from Dec. 21 through Jan. 2, and a Spring Break from April 2-6.
The year-round calendar begins Tuesday, July 25, and runs through Friday, June 29. The year-round calendar is only for the district's one elementary school — Sand Springs — currently on a year-round schedule.
Take a survey and give your input. Comments will be taken until Dec. 5.
The Board of Education will then consider comments when it meets Tuesday, Dec. 6. By law, the district has to provide students 180 days and 990 hours of instruction.
The Davis School District will keep parents up to date on school emergencies and school closures due to weather. Information will be posted here as needed.
Parents also may get the most up-to-date information from the district's Twitter and Facebook accounts.
