District reminds parents about weather procedures
As forecasts call for snow, the Davis School District reminds parents about procedures the district will use when it considers closing school for inclement weather.
The decision to close schools actually occurs in the early-morning hours when district snow plow drivers are out attempting to clear parking lots before students arrive at school. When plow drivers think conditions are bad, they make calls to the district's maintenance director, transportation director and facilities administrator, who then contact an assistant superintendent and superintendent of schools.

Reflecting back on years of accomplishments
By Craig Carter, Business Administrator
Another year and decade are coming to an end. As we reflect on the past 10 years, several things come to mind. We fought our way through the terrible recession of the early part of this decade. We managed over $70 million of budget challenges with minimal impact to student learning. We added 11 new schools and one rebuild to accommodate 7,000 new students since 2010.
The most important accomplishment this decade is our attention to the individual student and his/her success. In 2014, the Board of Education and district leadership decided to implement a districtwide accreditation. We were then and continue to be today, the only district in the state that has a district accreditation.
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.
