What's Happening at Davis

Staggering AP rates earn kudos for SHS

Titans are terrific, and people are taking notice.

In just one year, Syracuse High School increased the number of students taking Advanced Placement tests by a whopping 171 percent. At the same time, it increased AP pass rates from 64 to 65 percent. Such statistical gains are staggering!

Its goal was to increase participation by 150 percent and to maintain its pass rate.

For its efforts, Davis School District awarded the school a “Learning First Achievement Award.”

The school’s efforts on Concurrent Enrollment (CE) are also staggering. Back in 2016, students earned 3,702 CE credits. In 2019, they earned 6,156 CE credits. 

Boundary study well underway

In the fields of west Layton, another elementary school is beginning to take shape. The new school is being built to handle growth in that area of the school district.

With the construction of a new school, boundary adjustments must also be made. Establishing boundaries for Elementary School No. 63—located at 2504 West Sunburst Drive — adjusts boundaries of other nearby elementary schools, as well.

The Board of Education has hired consultant Dr. Darrell White to oversee the boundary study. The board also identified three goals that must be considered as the study moves forward.

Superintendency Message

District strives to "Be the One" 

By Reid Newey, Superintendent

“Every child is one caring adult away from being a success story” — Josh Shipp.

Child Spree

As a school district, collectively and individually we want to "Be the One," for both our students and for each other as colleagues in the greatest occupation one could have! There are daily examples of our efforts to be the one for children, one of the most apparent is the work done by our great teachers, staff and Davis Education Foundation at the event we call Child Spree. Each year Kohl’s department store, in Layton, allows DSD elementary students in need to come to the store and shop for school clothes and supplies.
