“If you want a good job, get a good education.” Utah Governor Gary Herbert, 2012. 

Utah Governor Gary Herbert has set the goal that “66% of all working-age Utahns will have, or will obtain a postsecondary degree or certificate by 2020”. In order to obtain this goal the Governor has established as a guide, the acronym PACE which is defined by P-prepare young learners, A-access for all students, C-complete certificates and degrees, E-economic alignment. 

In Weber District we believe in the value of education and the correlation it can have to an individual’s success in life. It is the mission of Secondary Education in Weber School District, to provide every student with the opportunity to attain the education and skills necessary to have a successful life. We believe that every child should be able to attend a safe school where caring, competent teachers, administrators and staff assist that child to realize their greatest potential. The 21st century presents ever increasing challenges in all facets of life, but particularly economically. The education our children receive today must be relevant and rigorous enough to ensure opportunity, but it also must be dynamic in nature in order to keep pace with the rapid changes in technology and the volatile shifts in economic and societal trends. We are committed to continually challenging ourselves as professional educators to be able to provide a 21st Century education to our students in Weber School District. We join Governor Herbert in continually challenging ourselves to provide a “good education” for our students and look forward to the opportunity we have each day to make a difference in the lives of children. 

If you are new to the area you can now use our Boundary Map to find your school. You can also use the Bus Stop Locator to find your new stop for this school year.

Weather Station and Air Quality

Written by

weatherstationWeather

Proud to be part of the Mesowest weather network, the Environmental Center weather station provides current and historical weather data for the area click here . Mesowest is a University of Utah sponsored network of weather stations that provide weather data that assist forecasters and computer models with ground based real time weather information.

Spend some time at the sight adjusting the viewing parameters to see what happened here yesterday, last week, last month or last year. Check out other sites in Weber County and around the state. Mesowest is truly a valuable tool for those interested in weather in Utah and beyond.

 

Air Quality.

A global network of Air Quality sampling stations allow you to see what the PM 2.5 level is in your area.  Search for "Purple Air." 

Near the Swanson's North Fork Environmental Center are two (8) stations, 

https://www.purpleair.com/map?#14.62/41.33846/-111.84832 

and 

https://www.purpleair.com/map?#13.6/41.3775/-111.86674 .  

Link to those stations to get a good idea what the air quality is at the Center and compare it to stations near your school.

Let's work together to see just what the air quality problem is and how we can reduce levels of harmful pollutants.

 

Things you can do:

Reduce vehicle idle time.

link your errands so you drive less.

When buying a vehicle consider fuel efficiency and zero emission vehicles as you make your choice.

If you have a wood burning stove replace it with a natural gas stove or clean burning wood stove.  There are grants available to do just that. https://deq.utah.gov/air-quality/wood-stove-conversion-assistance-program

Field trips also aim to build teamwork and cooperation and to allow students to discover new things about themselves and their abilities.
