Jordan School District Board of Education Meets with Legislators

Members of the Jordan School District Board of Education recently met with legislators representing the municipalities that encompass the District.

West Jordan High School hosted the morning meeting, which kicked off with a delicious breakfast prepared and served by West Jordan High ProStart students. The West Jordan High Madrigals then treated legislators and Board members to a musical performance.

Following a video overview about the District, as well as a video presentation about teacher salaries in the District, members of the Board discussed with lawmakers the upcoming 2018 legislative session and their priorities for the session. Legislators were able to ask questions about the District and learn more about the students and staff of Jordan School District.

A Letter from the Superintendent

Dear Collaborative Colleagues,

As the 2016-17 school year comes to a close for many of JSD’s employees, it gives us an opportunity to pause and reflect on the accomplishments we have come to experience together. This year we all worked together to ensure success of the first bond passed since 2003! Each day we see and feel the impact of this herculean effort as buildings are being planned, designed and built. Additionally, we hear and see evidence of the many wonderful people within the Jordan School District that give their all to focus on the mission of our school district.

Diplomas IconThank you for the exceptional work you do as we unite as a team for our young people throughout our district. I consider myself extremely blessed to be engaged in this noble work with you. We should all be celebrating the successes and graduation of JSD’s Classes of 2017! Our seniors are the products of great teamwork! Moreover, much gratitude and appreciation is extended to:

Our inspiring teachers and counselors that go the extra mile to make certain they are well trained, thoughtfully prepared, and constantly engaging so their students are provided only the best learning experiences.

Our awesome army of conscientious classified employees who are dedicated to and focused on their work accomplishing a plethora of behind the scenes but essential tasks in support of school instruction and our young people.

Our visionary administrators who constantly collaborate to ensure that we are continually monitoring, adjusting and improving in order to elevate our organization.

Our Board of Education as they diligently deliberate, establish goals and provide direction for the education of all students within our district.

Thank you for working together with me toward a much nobler purpose than ourselves. Thank you for keeping “every child, every day” at the forefront of the work we do each day and for working for the greater good—our collective future.

With my warmest regards and deepest appreciation,

Patrice A. Johnson, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
