    map pinpoint Students wishing to attend a school other than their boundary school during the 2018-19 school year can now file a variance request. Boundary variance requests will be accepted through Feb. 16. This infographic briefly explains the variance process.


    Variance approvals are made based on district policy, which is available here. The district follows state law in its designation of open schools.

  • Board adopts 2018-19 school year calendar 

    calendar The Board of Education adopted the 2018-19 school year calendar Tuesday during its regular meeting.


    Elementary School Director Helene Van Natter said the traditional nine-month calendar includes a start date of Wednesday, Aug. 22 and end date of Friday, May 31.  The calendar also schedules a winter recess from Dec. 21 through Jan. 2 and weeklong spring break from April 1-5.


    Additionally, a professional development day for teachers has been set for Sept. 17. State board rule allows up to four regular school days to be used as professional development days. The district is using one of those.


    On the year-round calendar, which currently is only for Sand Springs Elementary, two professional development days were scheduled.


    Test dates and parent teacher conferences will be added to the calendar in the spring.


    View the traditional calendar here.

    Thanks to schools, community for holiday service

    “Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.” -Booker T. Washington


    As our students left for Christmas Break, it was truly extraordinary to witness the generous giving by the students and staff of Davis District and the continued support of our Davis Education Foundation.  You never really know the challenges others are facing and who has needs in their life.  We gratefully acknowledge that for every dollar given, someone has sacrificed of their own means; we appreciate that, our students appreciate that as well!  Here are just a few examples:


    • Davis Education Foundation — a compilation of our community and business partners — provided Christmas for over 2,500 students with items ranging from shoes (14 schools), Christmas funds and school supplies to a Junior High “Child Spree” through Amazon.

    • Viewmont High School — raised more than $80,000 to provide Christmas to every student at one of our elementary schools and assisted the Davis Foundation and Bountiful Food Pantry.


    I know that this list is not going to include every school and/or department that did something for others at this holiday season, I apologize if we’ve missed something.  However, we want to acknowledge and thank all who have given for their incredible generosity and caring. 2018 is off to a great start!

    — Reid Newey, Superintendent
