Board meets with stakeholders in Town Hall
The Board of Education wants to hear from you. Three Education Town Halls have been scheduled throughout the county so board members can do just that.
The first meeting is scheduled for tonight from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Syracuse High School Choir Room. Two more meetings will be held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20, in the Layton High School Little Theatre and Thursday, Nov. 21, in the Bountiful High School Choir Room.
Participants can learn more about the District's Strategic Plan, ask questions and share their thoughts with the attending board members.

A little more kind
By Logan Toone, Assistant Superintendent
Our theme for district leadership training this year is “Be the One” – based on a quote from author/speaker Josh Shipp, “Every child is one caring adult away from being a success story.”
For us, this theme represents more than just a nice message. It reflects a deeply held belief about our role. We truly believe that every educator (regardless of their work assignment in our schools or district) is poised and empowered to make an individual difference for students.
A key accelerator for the work of difference-making is kindness. At some point in our lives, each of us has seen kindness in action.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
