  • Davis School District Board of Education 


    Full board
     
    Members of the Board of Education and district staff appreciate your interest in the board meetings and the business of the school system. Public understanding, participation and communication are vital to a successful educational environment for students in Davis schools. You are encouraged to read the minutes of meetings and anticipate agenda items of the next meeting to assist in your active participation.
     
    A quorum of four Board members is needed to conduct any official school district business. In addition to the Board, the superintendent and members of his administrative team will be on hand to provide reports and explanations on matters of concern to the Board. At most meetings, a department representative will share information about the function, effectiveness, and future plans of the service. Such issues as goals, evaluation, growth, budget, instructional methods, and programs are addressed.

    How you can be involved



    Citizen participation is one key to successful school programs. Community members serve on district advisory councils in areas such as vocational education, community school services, and special education; advisory committees for school finance, safe schools, transportation; and PTA study committees for annual reviews of curriculum areas and many others. If you're interested please view the Committees Involving Parents list.

    The community is an important resource. If you would like to be involved at your school, call or stop by and find out what you can do to help. Volunteers are valuable in schools in tutoring students, serving on PTA boards or community councils, assisting teachers, supervising activities, etc. Call your neighborhood school to volunteer.

    How you can be informed



    Copies of "Board Briefs", a summary of actions taken by the Board, are published on the district website. You can access it by clicking here and click on the date of the Board Briefs you would like to review under "publications."

    Copies of policies established by the Board are available through school principals or at the District Office Building through the policy director. Policies may also be accessed through the Internet, District policy page or by clicking here.

    Addressing your concerns



    Citizens with questions about the operation of schools are encouraged to first contact the teacher or staff member closest to the situation. The next step is to contact the school principal. Then, if necessary, concerns may be brought to the attention of a District School Director.
    Press Coverage



    News media representatives are invited to each meeting. Meetings are frequently covered by the Deseret News, Standard Examiner, Salt Lake Tribune, Davis County Clipper, and in some cases, television and radio news.

    Agenda



    Copies of the agenda are available on the Public Meeting Notice website, in the District Office foyer, at each board meeting, or simply by clicking on the Board Agendas and Minutes link near the top of this page. The agenda contains business to be considered at each meeting. Board members receive the agenda and supporting documents before each meeting so they may be prepared to make decisions.

    Some matters come before the Board on a Consent Agenda, requiring a majority Board approval. More complex matters are presented initially on a First Reading Agenda, giving time for public input before an Action Agenda vote. Other matters are presented on an Information Agenda.

    The Board cannot make decisions on important questions without complete information and resists considering other matters.

    Board Meetings



    The Board meets regularly on the third Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. and in a workshop meeting on the first Tuesday of each month at 4 p.m. Times and dates are subject to change. Agendas are posted at the entrance to the District Office Building, 45 E. State St., Farmington.
