New School Hiring Information

Thank you for your interest in Weber School District and the employment opportunities at West Field High School, Mountain View Junior High School, and our new yet-to-be-named elementary school. We are excited about the opening of these schools for the 2024/25 school year. We have already heard from many great educators who want to be a part of the new schools, so we want to explain the process for staffing these schools. While the timing of the job postings may differ slightly due to the number of needed positions, the hiring process will be consistent for all three schools. This plan will be updated continuously based on the boundary process and enrollment needs at the schools. 

Click here to review the vision and expectations of hired staff members.

The following plan will be used to facilitate the application and hiring process for teaching positions:

Department Head Hiring: The hiring of the department heads at West Field and Mountain View will be open to all applicants, inside and outside of Weber School District. Once hired, department heads will then be asked to be a part of future hiring committees. These positions will be opened in early November 2023.

Certified Hiring Round One: The initial round of interviews will be open to all certified employees from the impacted schools interested in positions at West Field HS, Mountain View JH, and the elementary school. Applicants will be required to apply and interview for those positions but are not guaranteed to be selected for any open positions. For West Field and Mountain View, these positions will be posted in early December 2023.

Certified Hiring Round Two: The second round of interviews will be open to all certified in-district employees interested in positions at West Field HS, Mountain View JH, and the elementary school. Applicants will be required to apply and interview for those positions but are not guaranteed to be selected for any open positions. For West Field and Mountain View, these positions will be posted in January 2024.

After Certified Hiring Round Two, we will have been able to identify all displaced employees. Those employees will be notified and walked through the process of applying for open positions at other Weber School District schools. 

Certified Hiring Round Three: The third round of interviews will be open to all certified in-district and out-of-district employees interested in positions at West Field HS, Mountain View JH, and the elementary school. Applicants will be required to apply and interview for those positions but are not guaranteed to be selected for any open positions. For West Field and Mountain View, these positions will likely be posted in late February 2024.

As we work through the hiring process, it is important to keep in mind the following factors:

  • Due to the likely reduction of students at schools once the boundaries for West Field HS, Mountain View JH, and the elementary school become official, staffing needs at those schools may also be affected.
  • Schools that will have a reduction in staffing will be identified once the new boundaries are official and enrollment numbers are calculated. 
  • To ensure that no school is severely impacted by a loss of employees, Weber School District will limit the number of employees it hires from an impacted school to the new schools. This limit will be proportional to the number of students leaving due to the boundary adjustment. For example, if a school's student enrollment decreases by 25% as a result of the boundary change, the impacted school's staffing will be reduced by no more than 25% as well, spread across all curricular areas. In other words, no more than 25% of the impacted school's staff will be hired for the new schools.
  • Potentially displaced employees will be identified and notified as outlined in the employee agreement. All efforts will be made to work with and support the displaced employee to identify and secure placement in the most advantageous situation for their future employment. All displaced employees should be identified and notified prior to the third round of hiring.

Truth In Taxation

The Weber School District Board of Education will hold a Truth in Taxation hearing on Wednesday, August 2, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. in the BoardRoom at the District Office, 5320 S. Adams Ave.,Ogden. The purpose of this hearing is to consider increasing the tax rate along with providing opportunity for the public to comment on this matter.

In November 2021, voters approved a $279 million bond to build a new high school, junior high school, and elementary school in western Weber County, along with rebuilding Roosevelt Elementary in Washington Terrace. Escalating construction costs and inflation over the past two years have created some financial challenges in completing the rebuild of Roosevelt. The Weber School Board is considering other options to ensure this project is completed as promised under the 2021 bond.

The Board recently created a Municipal Building Authority which will enable the district to issue revenue bonds for capital projects. This is common practice utilized by municipalities, school districts and other government agencies.

During the Truth in Taxation hearing, the board will position itself to issue a revenue bond for $52 million to complete the Roosevelt rebuild project. The revenue bond will be funded by raising the Capital Outlay Levy; however, the board will also be lowering the Debt Service Levy to offset the tax increase. These adjustments are predicted to have a zero tax impact to taxpayers.

As outlined during the 2021 bond campaign, the board will also be considering making a scheduled adjustment to the local tax rate. This adjustment will go to fund the ongoing expenses associated with operating the three new schools. These expenses include utilities as well essential personnel such as a principal, head secretary, custodian, media specialist, school resource officer, and other non-teacher positions. There will be no increase in costs associated with the rebuild of Roosevelt Elementary since the school already exists with supporting faculty and staff.

The board will also consider making a one time adjustment to the Judgment Levy to offset the amount of $453,436 that was awarded to PacifiCorp and CenturyLink after they appealed their assessed property values to the State Tax Commission. This judgment affects tax revenues collected by the state dating back to 2018. 

Members of the public wishing to attend the hearing can sign-up online. Public comments will be limited to three minutes per person.
