  • Board seeks comment
    on bond sale resolution

    The Board of Education of the Davis School District passed a resolution Tuesday authorizing the issuance and sale of not more than $43 million of the 2009 voter-approved bonds.

    By law, the resolution allows for a 30-day comment period before the actual sale of those bonds.

    The bond money would be used to build a new elementary school in west Farmington and a new elementary school in west Kaysville to alleviate current overcrowding in nearby existing schools. It would also complete renovations at Millcreek Junior High and finance other building improvements in the district.

    Bond monies can only be used for brick and mortar projects and cannot be used for employee salaries.

    Approximately $35 million of the original $250 million voter-approved bond remains unspent and is expected to be issued in 2016. Bonds already issued from the 2009 bond built Centennial Junior High, Odyssey and Wasatch elementary schools, and the Vista Special Education Campus. Bonds were also used to complete phase II of South Weber Elementary’s K-2 Center, phase II of Layton High expansion, renovate Central Davis Junior High and Bountiful High and purchase property for future school sites.

  • Literacy night features dozens of local authors
    Mull Imagine dozens of published authors gathered in one place, eager to answer questions about their writing.

    That's just what will happen at the annual Family Literacy Night.  The districtwide event includes regular visits from Utah authors such as Richard Paul Evans, Jennifer Nielsen and Tyler Whitesides. Thousands — students and their family members — now attend the annual event. 
    This year, Family Literacy Night will be at 6:30 p.m., March 10, at Viewmont High School, 120 W. 1000 North, Bountiful. The keynote speaker is Brandon Mull, known for his Fablehaven and Beyonders series. 
    Following the keynote speaker, visitors are invited to attend workshops by other Utah authors and book illustrators. For a complete list of those authors, click here. The workshops allow those in attendance to not only meet some of their favorite authors, but also to get tips on writing, illustrating and publishing.
    Prior to literacy night, students are invited to print out a coloring page here and enter it into the coloring contest that night. Door prizes will also be awarded. The evening includes book sales thanks to Barnes & Noble and book signings at 8:30 p.m.
    Leading up to the Family Literacy Night, the Layton Barnes & Noble will host a book fair March 6-10 with a percentage of all book sales benefitting Davis Reads. Online shoppers can support Davis Reads by entering the ID No. 11563954 at checkout March 10-15.
