  • Legislation impacts students, district

    Craig Carter The Legislature convened on Jan. 22 and will work non-stop until March 8 at midnight.  During that time, they will spend countless hours in committee meetings, floor debates within their respective chambers, meeting with multiple interest groups – including the Davis School District — and answering hundreds of emails. 


    Through this process they do an amazing job of addressing the various critical needs in our state.   


    Of course, for us, funding our schools is the most critical. Seventy-one percent of our general fund revenue is from the legislative allocation. We are fortunate in that our Davis County legislative team is very supportive of our district and our students.   


    Many of them visit our schools each year and see the great things happening in our classrooms every day.  I would encourage all of our teachers, administrative teams and support professionals to reach out to our legislators and invite them to visit and see firsthand how the resources they allocate are being used. 


    They may know what they allocate each year, but in many cases, they don’t know how they are used each day.  It is critical that our legislators understand that what they do, affects the lives of our children.   


    Each year we welcome between 800–1,100 new students to our district.  We hire over 300 new teachers each spring. We work hard to ensure our employee compensation package keeps us competitive with neighboring districts to ensure we attract and retain the best available teachers and support professionals.  We continue to add new schools and upgrade existing schools to meet the needs of the 21st Century classroom.   


    It is easy to see that with the many needs any new resources can go quickly.  We are fortunate that the Legislature has established programs for districts like ours that have a low business tax base.  Those programs help us compete with some of our neighboring districts that have a much stronger tax base.   


    As we work through the legislative session and then compensation discussions with our employee groups we will focus on maximizing the impact in the classroom.  Our Board of Education has directed us to do all we can to impact learning.  As we move to more personalized learning models, our funding priorities will be focused on achieving those goals. 


    I have the great privilege of working for the greatest district.  Our teachers are amazing, our support professionals work miracles behind the scenes.  Our Board of Education is committed to our students’ successes in life.  What we do changes lives, and that is a life worth living. 

    — Craig Carter, Business Administrator
