Superintendent's Message - ​January 2016

I appreciate this opportunity to work in Weber School District as Assistant Superintendent. Let me introduce myself: I’m Kevin Sederholm and I have worked for the district for 29 years. I started with the district as an elementary teacher. I taught at Pioneer, Valley, Country View and Bates Elementary. I’ve taught every grade in elementary except for kindergarten. I then became a principal and worked at Kanesville, Pioneer, and Bates. I’ve been the Human Resource Director for the past six years. Weber School District has always been my home--going through as a student myself (my wife Kelly is also a product of WSD), to raising our six children within the district’s education system. I have truly enjoyed my career thus far and look forward to new experiences.

As the Human Resource Director I have the unique opportunity to work with and see many other districts. I have worked with these districts recruiting, comparing different policies and procedures, and resolving different personnel issues. As a result of these interactions I have come to appreciate our district immensely. We work with good people! We have employees who work tirelessly on behalf of our students in every department. Weber School District parents get involved with our schools and help their children to succeed. These are people who always put our students’ best interests first. As a result, we have a great district, but also a district that we will continue to try and improve. Again, I look forward to working with you as we all strive to make our children’s education the best it can be.
