Comment sought on school fee policy

The Davis School District’s fee schedule is in the process of getting changes in structure to align with new state rules implemented in the last legislative session.

High School Director Dr. Dan Linford presented the proposed 2020-21 school fee schedule to the Board of Education during its regular meeting Tuesday, Feb. 4. The updated schedule was developed with recommendations and input from district and school administrators and the District’s School Fees Committee, which includes parents, students, educators and administrators.

The Board will consider the changes for final approval during its regular meeting on March 3. The proposed revisions are outlined here. 

Comments can be made during a board workshop on Feb. 18 or during the board meeting March 3. Comments will also be taken through email. Click on the Submit Comment by Email box at https://www.davis.k12.ut.us/district/administration/policy-manual

Take a moment to reflect
on inclusion, equity

By John Zurbuchen, Assistant Superintendent

Noted historian Carter G. Woodson initiated “Negro History Week” in 1926 to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln (February 12) and Frederick Douglass (February 14).  By the Bicentennial year of 1976, President Gerald Ford designated February as Black History Month to “Seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”

Certainly, one part of Black History Month is the celebration of noteworthy accomplishments by black Americans. Take the opportunity provided by this month to explore the amazing and essential contributions of these and other black Americans.
