An ongoing effort is being made in Davis School District schools to change the climate within the walls of its 92 school buildings. These videos are a part of that overall effort.
The district premiered the first episode in January. Each month a video has been released to schools and parents. Each addresses a skill students can use when they experience hurtful or harmful behavior. Those skills are: Interrupt, Ask a Question, Educate and Echo.
Students collaborated to help create the five-part series, "No More! Not Here!"
The videos feature student, teacher and administrator voices inviting all to become more positive, inclusive and caring while at school and in their community.
Celebrating our 15th year anniversary, The Davis School District Office of Equal Opportunity invites all K-12 currently enrolled in the Davis School District to enter the 2022-2023 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Speech Contest. This gives our students the opportunity to reflect on the legacy of Dr. King.
Multicultural Student Advisory Committee (MSAC)
The MSAC represents the “voice” of the underrepresented students. The MSAC is dedicated to making sure the interests and concerns of students are heard on campus. The MSAC keeps an open discussion policy and would speak to the needs and support all students.
The purpose of the Multicultural Student Advisory Committee, known as the MSAC, is to serve as a voice of the underrepresented students and as a liaison between the student body, faculty, and administration; promote the development of cultural awareness; and encourage equity, cultivate a productive environment, and effective citizenship through student participation in resolving student issues and concerns.
Prepare secondary students for a heightened awareness and smoother integration into a variety of cultural environments and experiences.
Teacher Recruitment Scholarship for Diverse Students (TRS)
The Teacher Recruitment Scholarship is designed to support diverse high school graduates from five districts including DSD, who are interested in becoming a teacher. The goal of the Teacher Recruitment Scholarship is to increase the ethnic diversity of teachers in Wasatch Front schools.
TRS recipients will be encouraged to return to their communities as educational leaders and mentors for future generations after completing their teaching degree. The scholarship will cover the cost of full-time tuition (provided by Salt Lake Community College), and up to $500 per year for books and fees (provided by the school districts). Each scholarship will be renewable for a second year at Salt Lake Community College, provided the student meets all necessary requirements. Upon completion of an associate’s degree, Teacher Recruitment Scholars are encouraged to transfer to the University of Utah to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Teacher Education. Pending available funding, qualified individuals will be eligible for approximately $5,000 per year of funding for a maximum of two years at the University of Utah.
