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.

A little more kind
By Logan Toone, Assistant Superintendent
Our theme for district leadership training this year is “Be the One” – based on a quote from author/speaker Josh Shipp, “Every child is one caring adult away from being a success story.”
For us, this theme represents more than just a nice message. It reflects a deeply held belief about our role. We truly believe that every educator (regardless of their work assignment in our schools or district) is poised and empowered to make an individual difference for students.
A key accelerator for the work of difference-making is kindness. At some point in our lives, each of us has seen kindness in action.
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.
