Response to Governor Cox Cell Phone Request

Written by

1/11/2024

Dear WSD Administrators, Employees and Parents/Guardians,

As you likely know, Governor Cox recently issued a letter to school and district leaders, requesting that cell phone use be disallowed in classrooms. I've provided the Governor's Letter and resources he provided (attached). We fully support the thoughtful consideration of the Governor's request, but want to ensure that our school leaders engage in discussions with the educators, parents/guardians, Community Councils, PTAs and student leaders in their school community before "hard and fast" school policies are enacted which ban cell phones in the classroom. Gleaning stakeholder input is essential. Some of our schools have already created policies which restrict cell phones in learning spaces/classrooms. These schools enacted a very intentional process, and involved stakeholders in that process, prior to the determination to implement such policies. A very important piece to consider is how student discipline related to cell phones should/will be managed. 

At the district level, leaders are engaged in discussions related to the cell phone issues we are seeing in our schools. Our district's secondary and elementary leadership, along with our policy committee, will provide guidance and support to our schools as we create a more formal determination of how cell phones will be managed in all our schools. Research studies have well documented the fact that cell phone usage is impacting the social connections, mental/emotional health, self-regulating behaviors, brain development and functioning, and learning and achievement in our young people. The rise in cyberbullying incidents directly impact our students' perception of a "safe and healthy" school environment. 

Many teachers are reporting that they cannot manage the "distractions" created by cell phones and disengagement they observe in their students with access to these devices in learning environments. Their jobs are to educate and inspire, not manage the cell phone usage of their students. Some educators are reporting a weariness and diminishing job satisfaction level due to having to constantly intervene and redirect students related to cell phones. The management of cell phones in the learning environment requires a great amount of time and effort by school personnel. There is no doubt that this time and effort could be more productively utilized to directly support learning and forge positive connections with students. 

The members of our Board of Education are fully committed to mitigating the negative impact that cell phones and social media are having on children's emotional and mental health. Weber School District joined other Utah districts in legal action aimed at holding large social media platforms accountable for the mental/emotional effects we are seeing in our children. As a district, we are fully engaged in the process of determining next steps and policy decisions related to Governor Cox's imperative. 

We welcome your feedback concerning cell phones in the classroom! We encourage you to reach out to your school leaders to share your perspectives and input. 

Sincerely,

WSD Superintendency

Truth In Taxation

Written by

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.

http://wsd.net/resources/downloadable/documents-forms/board/bond-2021/3393-bond-election-brochure/file

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.

West Field Cone Boundary Study

Written by

Open House Presentation

Weber School District will open three new schools for the 2024/25 school year, West Field High School, Mountain View Middle School, and a yet-to-be-named elementary school. The Weber District Board of Education opened a boundary study in November 2022 to create the attendance boundaries for these new schools. As part of that process, current school capacities were studied to determine the best way to alleviate crowding at schools while populating the new schools. This may result in modifications to current school boundaries. 

Weber School District will be hosting open houses to help educate stakeholders on the process and share the boundary scenarios that the school and district teams have helped facilitate. We invite all stakeholders to attend these open houses to review the scenarios and offer feedback. If you cannot attend, you may also use the links below to review the information and share your thoughts. All open houses begin at 6:00pm.

BOARD OF EDUCATION OF WEBER SCHOOL DISTRICT, UTAH

SPECIAL BOND ELECTION

November 2, 2021

[(Facsimile Signature)

Business Administrator, Weber School District]

Shall the Board of Education of Weber School District, Utah, be authorized to issue general obligation bonds (“Bonds”) in an amount not to exceed $279,000,000 and to mature in no more than twenty-one (21) years from the date or dates of issuance of such Bonds for the purpose of raising money for constructing buildings, acquiring land and furnishings and remodeling and updating existing school property under the charge of the Board, and, to the extent necessary, for providing moneys for the refunding, at or prior to the maturity thereof, of general obligation bonds of the Board authorized hereunder or heretofore issued and now outstanding?

PROPERTY TAX COST OF BONDS

If the Bonds are issued as planned, without regard to the taxes currently levied for outstanding bonds that will reduce over time, an annual property tax to pay debt service on the Bonds will be required over a period of 20 years in the estimated average amount of $146.00 on a $395,000 primary residence, and in the estimated average amount of $265.45 on a business property having the same value.

Since there are other outstanding bonds, an otherwise scheduled tax decrease may not occur if these Bonds are issued.

However, such outstanding bonds reduce over time such that the average property tax due to the issuance of the proposed Bonds is expected to have a zero net increase ($0.00) from the current annual property tax levels after the Bonds are issued on both primary residences and businesses or secondary residences in the District.

The foregoing is only an estimate and is not a limit on the amount of taxes that the governing body may be required to levy in order to pay debt service on the Bonds.  The governing body is obligated to levy taxes to the extent provided by law in order to pay the Bonds.

To vote in favor of the above bond issue, select the box immediately adjacent to the words “For the Issuance of Bonds.”  To vote against the bond issue, select the box immediately adjacent to the words “Against the Issuance of Bonds.”
