“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.
