Latinos in Action

Latinos In Action (LIA) offers an asset-based approach to bridging the graduation and opportunity gap for Latino students, working from within the educational system to create positive change. Our program operates as a year-long elective course taught by a highly qualified teacher at the middle school, junior high, and high school level with the goal of empowering Latino youth to lead and strengthen their communities through college and career readiness. We accomplish this by focusing on four pillars: leveraging personal and cultural assets, excelling in education, serving the community, and developing leadership skills. Because of this unique combination, the LIA model has proven effective throughout the United States.

How it works:

By design, LIA students engage in three evidenced-based, core components during class time:

College and Career Readiness Curriculum:

Our culturally relevant, college and career readiness curriculum bolsters students’ current academic performance while preparing them for their futures as college-bound students and contributing members of society. The curriculum offers high-quality instruction on post-secondary education options and readiness, personal development, professionalism, and an exploration of one’s cultural heritage through literary and performing arts.

Leadership Development:

Each LIA student gains real-life leadership experience by participating in student-lead service, social, and professional committees. We are scaffolding their leadership skills and then infusing the students back into the school community, better prepared to lead and serve.

Literacy Tutoring:

From approximately October to April, LIA students serve as role models, mentors, and literacy tutors for neighboring elementary school students. This partnership helps both parties develop linguistic proficiency, refine social skills, and deepen their understanding of the value of being bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural.


Weber School District Latinos In Action

  • All Weber School District high schools (Bonneville HS, Fremont HS, Roy HS, and Weber HS) have a LIA program. 
  • Seven of the junior high schools (Orion JHS, Rocky Mountain JHS, Roy JHS, Sand Ridge JHS, South Ogden JHS, T.H. Bell JHS, Wahlquist JHS) have a LIA program.
  • Partnership schools (Country View ES, Farr West ES, H. Guy Child ES, Lomond View ES, Majestic ES, Municipal ES, North Park ES, Roosevelt ES, Valley View ES, and Washington Terrace ES) support tutoring services for students. 

Students in the LIA program are required to maintain a 3.0 GPA and cannot accrue more than four absences or tardies in any class. These students complete 30 hours of service per school quarter. Eighty percent of student class time is devoted to tutoring services and building relationships with elementary partnership schools. Students in the LIA program plan fund-raisers to pay for appeal and activities. Additional service projects include cleaning parks, creating hygiene kits, and school improvement projects.

Restorative Practices

Helping Students Build Strong and Healthy Relationships - In School and In Life

Restorative Practices is a positive way of living—NOT a disciplinary tool. Through Restorative Practices, students learn to connect with teachers and other students to build a strong community. They develop appropriate social and emotional skills, come to understand how their actions affect others, and work to repair any harm done. It is an approach built on respect, communication, and strategies for success. We understand that when everyone is treated with respect, classrooms are safe and healthy environments that support both teaching and learning.

Key Objectives

  • Respect
  • Relate
  • Reflect
  • Restore

Why use Restorative Practices?

Restorative Practices create supportive school communities where students can thrive and learn the academic, social and emotional skills that they need to succeed in college, career and life. Restorative Practices provide a way for schools to strengthen community, build relationships among students and between students and staff, and increase the safety and productivity of the learning environment. Restorative Practices:

  • Improve school and classroom climates by focusing on community, relationships and responsibility
  • Promote social and emotional skill development by teaching students’ self-awareness, empathy, communication skills, responsible decision-making, relationship building, and conflict resolution.
  • Increase safety and order in school buildings by decreasing conflict, de-escalating volatile situations, and promoting a sense of collective responsibility
  • Decrease disciplinary issues and disruptions, and serve as an alternative to harmful exclusionary practices such as suspension and expulsion
  • Promote student engagement in learning and aids in classroom management

Implementing School-wide Restorative Practices

Restorative Practices are ingrained in and implemented through a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) that promotes all students’ academic, social, and emotional learning. Rather than a separate program, Restorative Practices are ways of speaking with each other, working together, and resolving conflict as part of the process to develop a warm, safe, and productive school climate. While Restorative Practices may be used informally by individuals, a school-wide approach to Restorative Practices must be implemented intentionally and systematically to create culture change and ensure success.

While implementation is outlined in sequential steps below, in practice, these steps may overlap or require repetition or adaptation.

  1. Gain Commitment
  2. Create Ownership
  3. Create a Shared Vision
  4. Develop Stystems as Practice
  5. Continously Improve

Orion Jr High students make seatbelt covers

Ms Smith FACS class at Orion Jr have been making seatbelt covers for cancer patients…The idea was inspired by one of Ms. Smith students who has a friend with cancer.  The cancer patients favorite item that helped her through her treatments  was a selt beltcover for the Chemo ports.  The covers prevent the seatbelts from rubbing against the ports. The ports are very sensitive.  All covers made will be donated to local hospitals for cancer patients.

December 2019 Superintendency Message

A message from Assistant Superintendent Art Hansen:

Serving Others

As we approach the holidays, it is a good time to reflect on the amazing efforts that our schools and the Weber School Foundation are making to enhance the lives of those who are in need. Not only do these efforts help our community, the concept of serving others is an important life skill for our students. As Booker T. Washington said, "Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others." We have a lot of happy students and educators who value service.  

Throughout the year, and especially during this time of year, our schools are teaming up with non-profit organizations to serve our community and beyond. They are gathering items and cash to be distributed to those in need in our community. Examples of service include: Shop with a Hero, food drives, toy drives, book drives, blanket drives, glove drives, cash and coin challenges, Quarters and Cans, giving/angel trees, benefit dinners, benefit dances, and visits to nursing and veterans' homes. These efforts are going on quietly behind the scenes in each of our schools.

Weber District schools have also been the beneficiaries of many wonderful individuals, community, and business organizations who have opened their hearts and wallets and have reached out to our schools to identify those in need--organizing drives within their organizations to give to our children.

This year, our Career and Technical Education (CTE) Student Organizations have declared 30 Days of Service. Our DECA, FBLA, FCCLA, FFA, HOSA, Skills USA, and Education Rising students are involved in providing service for individuals, families, and non-profit organizations.  

The Weber School Foundation sponsors the Christmas Tree Jubilee each year. Through the efforts of the WSD Foundation and all those who donate Christmas trees, decorated wreaths, and silent auction baskets, as well as those who attend the gala and jubilee each year, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised that directly benefit children in our area. This year's focus is twofold. Funds generated will go to providing sensory playgrounds for children with special needs and to help fund mental health efforts in each of our junior high schools and high schools through the Hope Squad program.  

It is indeed a time to celebrate the efforts of so many. We are grateful to know that there are so many individuals and groups out there who want to serve and give to those who are most at risk, not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year. Thank you for all you do!!!
