The May 25 Board meeting summary is now available and can be viewed at jordandistrict.org/board/meetings/summary/2021-05-25/.
The Utah State Legislature recently passed a resolution strongly encouraging schools not to teach the following concepts:
- that one race is inherently superior or inferior to another race.
- that an individual should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment because of the individual’s race.
- that an individual’s moral character is determined by the individual’s race.
We want to clarify that these concepts are not a part of Jordan School District’s curriculum and never have been.
Jordan School District will continue to work to ensure that every student feels welcome in our schools and receives the highest quality education possible.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Jordan School District Board of Education has followed all health directives from the state of Utah regarding masks in schools. Recently, Governor Cox lifted the mask requirement for the last week of school, giving districts the authority to extend the mask mandate at the local level if they so choose.
The Jordan School District Board of Education will not be extending the state’s mask mandate. As a result, masks will not be required in Jordan District schools, buildings, or property starting Tuesday, June 1, 2021. This includes, graduation, school activities, year-round school, and summer school. Anyone who wishes to continue wearing a mask is encouraged to do so.
She is a shining star among educators. Please join us in congratulating Columbia Elementary School 4th grade teacher Kymberli Cosner who was just named “Jordan School District Teacher of the Year.”
Columbia Elementary School Principal Abe Yospe says Ms. Cosner is a superhero. He says whether it was being put in quarantine, teaching online, helping get food to students in need or simply showing love for others, Kymberli Cosner crushed every issue 2020 could throw her way.
Ms. Cosner is changing the lives of students every day and we could not be more proud to honor her as “Jordan School District Teacher of the Year.”
Ms. Cosner will now compete for Utah Teacher of the Year. Best of luck!
