• In the month of November, we joined Americans across the country to celebrate Veterans’ Day. Our schools held assemblies to honor the men and women of our community, who willingly and courageously defended our freedom. It is one of my favorite assemblies of the year. It is great to watch our students learn and show appreciation for what has been done for them in the past. Thanks again to our veterans.


    We also joined with the U.S Department of Education, the National PTA, the National School Board Association, and teacher and administrator associations across the county to observe American Education Week, November 13-19. This week encourages districts across the country to share their vision for students, highlight the great things happening in their schools and classrooms, and highlight the importance of community involvement and support in public education. Here in the North Summit School District, we find it fitting that we point out the District mission, vision, and values that were approved by the Board of Education a couple of years ago. 



    North Summit School District stands united in the pursuit of educational excellence because our students deserve a challenging, inspirational and safe learning environment that empowers each of them to grow and prepare for the future.


    WE VALUE . . .

    1. A Safe and Positive Learning Climate
    2. Excellence in Teaching and Learning
    3. Opportunities for Growth
    4. Personal and Social Responsibility
    5. Fiscal Responsibility
    6. Community Engagement
    7. Mutual Respect and Commitment
    8.    Open Communication and Transparency


    1. The STUDENT should be our #1 priority. (Whatever it takes)
    2.             The Growth of each Individual Student should be celebrated.
    3.             Our Intervention Plan should be based on data and should lead to well-planned instruction.
    4. Helping students prepare for the rigor and competition of college and/or careers is our duty.
    5. Our EMPLOYEES are a crucial key to the success of our children. (We value them by maintaining competitive salaries/benefits)
    6.            We should teach the Utah State Standards with fidelity.
    7.            Professional Development is valuable and essential. (Focus on improvement)
    8. Our 1:1 Technology Initiative is a benefit to students’ education, but it does not replace the necessity and value of a good teacher.
    9. Teachers who use technology in their classrooms are able to provide more opportunity and variety to their students’ learning experience, and they are able to make more informed decisions when using data to differentiate instruction.
    10. Collaborative Teams are most efficient when focused discussions lead to instruction that is founded on data from formative and summative assessments, and when thoughtful discussions lead to meeting the emotional and behavioral needs of individual kids.
    11. Learning is achieved more readily when school is exciting and interesting for our students.
    12. Open Communication from top to bottom using proper chain of command is the best and most efficient mode of operation.



    Our District will be one that provides an innovative and quality education that fosters achievement and success for everyone.

    • All Students will master essential learning skills, demonstrate civic responsibility, feel empowered to prepare for post-secondary education and/or careers, and engage in positive personal development.
    • All Teachers, Administrators and Staff will recognize the value of their positions and contributions and commit to daily excellence.
    • All Parents will be positively invested in their students’ education.  
    • The Community will recognize and value the quality of our district and will support the educational process.
