Schools Face Dire Options

The SL Tribune reported (Lisa Schencker) last week that some struggling schools will have to make some major changes to receive part of the U.S. Dept. of Ed $17.4 million in Utah school improvement grants. Those options are:
  • Replace their principals and half of the staff
  • Convert to charter schools
  • Replace the principal and do training for the staff
  • Close their doors

Ogden District schools Madison, Gramercy, Dee, Odyssey, T.O. Smith, Bonneville, Lincoln, Ogden High, Washington High, and Ben Lomond High would qualify.

Weber District has Roy Elementary that would qualify.
