  • Taylor Elementary receives National Blue Ribbon recognition


    Natl. Blue Ribbon Seal For J.A. Taylor Elementary, being recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School is not just a once-in-a-lifetime achievement.


    The school, located in Centerville, was among 342 schools nationally awarded the coveted title this year and one of only two in Utah. It’s actually the second time around for Taylor Elementary, which also received the award in 1988. That makes it the only public school in Utah to be recognized multiple times.



    U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos congratulated the schools with an announcement earlier today. Taylor’s recognition is based on the school’s overall exemplary academic performance as measured by state assessments.

  • There’s a big engine driving the district bus


    Craig Carter We are well into another amazing year in the Davis School District.  Various athletic teams are in the middle of successful seasons.  Choir, band, and performing arts are working hard to maximize their potential.  Teachers are working tirelessly to help all our students become the best they can be. 


    I would like to share some of the outstanding accomplishments of many of our Support Professionals that have taken place this summer. 


    Our support teams have been working long hours over the summer to bring many needed improvements to fruition.  For many of us the summer is the busiest time of the year.  Let me share just a few of the events that took place this summer.  Many of these were completed in house by our maintenance staff.


    • Installed air conditioning in 19 schools.  Our goal is to complete the remaining schools next year.
    • Replaced carpet in nine schools.
    • Began two major projects — an addition at Mueller Park Jr. High and began construction on Junior High No. 17 in West Layton.
    • Construction continues at Woods Cross High, Viewmont High and the new Farmington High.  All will be done next summer.
    • Installed new parking lots at Boulton Elementary and Millcreek Junior High.
    • Added secure vestibules at five schools.  We are in the planning stages of a major security upgrade across the district.
    • Completed waterline replacements at several schools.
    • Installed multiuse turf fields at Woods Cross High and Layton High.  A new track at Layton High.
    • Updated the band room at North Layton Jr. High.
    • Constructed a new cafeteria at Whitesides Elementary.



    • Our finance team recently completed an extensive audit of our $750 million budget with flying colors.
    • Our transportation team received high honors from the Utah Highway Patrol for how well they maintain our bus fleet.
    • Our school secretaries processed well over 1,000 student registration changes this summer.
    • Our custodial teams worked countless hours to ensure all schools were deep cleaned and ready for students to return.  The many construction projects made this effort even more difficult.
    • Nutrition Services continues to conform to the ever changing federal nutritional guidelines while serving over 6.5 million meals and 170,000 peanut butter bars each year. 


    This is only a partial list of all our Support Professionals accomplish each day in our district.  They take great pride in supporting the educational process and ensuring our students have the best learning environment possible.  Davis School District truly lives the axiom – We are all educators.  Have a great year! 

    — Business Administrator Craig Carter
