Superintendent Cade Douglas and Salina Elementary School Principal Kole Krahenbuhl discuss a range of topics starting with concerns about Critical Race Theory and the "woke" movement. They then move into senior graduation, Utah Rural Schools Association Conference, the COVID-induced academic gap and the proactive approach Sevier School District is taking to make up for lost ground by offering summer school programs.
Sevier School District is now accepting registrations for our Preschools next school year (2021-2022). Students must be 4 years old on or before September 1. Register online at https://www.seviersd.org/
Registration does not guarantee your child's participation. Sevier District's ability to offer this program is contingent upon receipt of grant funding. Grant funding notification is not expected until late June/early July of 2021. Applicants will be notified ASAP once Sevier District learns if funding has been awarded or denied.
Please listen to the following interview with Superintendent Douglas and Jill Porter regarding the Importance of School Attendance, South Sevier Middle School Construction Update, Intervention Support for Students, and Graduation.
