  • Graduation rates increase
     
    Cap At least 104 more students in the Davis School District are carrying a diploma thanks to districtwide efforts to increase graduation rates in 2014.

    In a statewide release, Bountiful and Davis High Schools were also identified among the state’s top 10 schools with graduation rates of 97 percent.

    Additionally, Davis School District had the highest overall graduation rate — 91 percent — for districts along the Wasatch Front. That equates to an increase of 3 percent from 88 percent in 2013.

    All of the district’s traditional high schools touted a graduation rate above 90 percent. Mountain High School — the district’s alternative school — increased its graduation rate by nearly 10 percent, bringing it to 67 percent from 58 percent in 2013.

  • Be prepared for school emergencies
     
     “Be Prepared” is a motto that seems to apply for all sorts of situations. Food storage. Your financial reserve. The next blizzard.

    The same “be prepared” adage applies to schools. That being said, the Davis School District wants to remind you to be prepared for school emergencies.

    To help, the district has published three documents that not only outline procedures it will follow in emergencies, but also how it will communicate with parents.

    Should an emergency or disaster situation occur while school is in session, the district wants to ensure that you are aware of how to respond. This is crucial, because it will help with the smooth handling of any crisis situation.

  •  District achieves five years on AP Honor Roll

    honor roll

    It's an accomplishment only five districts in the nation can claim.

    For the fifth year in a row, the Davis School District was named to the AP Honor Roll — the only district in the state to achieve that distinction.

    It’s not an achievement that came easy. College Board examines three years of Advanced Placement (AP) data to make sure the district has met the following criteria:

    • Increased participation or access to AP by at least 4 percent;

    • Increased or maintained the percentage of exams taken by minority populations;

    • Improved performance levels when comparing the students who scored a 3 or higher in 2012 to passed tests in 2014.

    Making the honor roll five years in a row means the Davis School District just keeps going up. It reflects both the offering of more AP courses and the recruitment of more students taking those classes.

    “The distinction is nothing compared to the preparation students are receiving for their futures,” said Superintendent Dr. W. Bryan Bowles. “AP classes are more rigorous and help students realize they can be successful. We are grateful for our great teachers, administrators and parents who are encouraging students to excel in their areas of interest.”

    Davis School District made the 5th annual AP Honor Roll alongside 547 school districts in the U.S. and Canada.
