Hill AFB Education and Academics in Davis and Weber Counties

For those moving to a new location, it’s important to know what educational options are available. This chapter outlines the public schools system in Davis and Weber counties, along with information about local libraries and higher education. There are private schools, charter schools and home schooling available to children in both counties as well.

To be enrolled in a Utah school, a child must be at least 5 years old by Sept. 2 of the school year. Those wishing to register their child in school should bring the following to the school office: a birth certificate or other proof of the child’s age, the child’s previous school records and immunizations records. Check with the school for additional requirements. Required immunizations for a child enrolling in kindergarten are as follows: five doses of diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis vaccine; four doses of polio vaccine; two doses of measles, mumps and rubella vaccine; three doses for hepatitis B; two doses for hepatitis A; and two doses for varicella. For entry into seventh grade, a student must have written proof of these same immunizations, with age-appropriate dosages and booster shots. For more details on Utah’s minimum vaccine requirements for students in grades K-12, visit the Utah Department of Health’s website at www.immunize-utah.org.

In 2010, Utah, along with the majority of other states, the District of Columbia, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Department of Defense Education Activity adopted Common Core State Standards that provide a consistent set of educational expectations for students, regardless of ZIP code. When a family moves, a student’s education is often disrupted because the student may be forced to repeat material or learn at a different level at the new school. With common standards across states, this disruption will be reduced — of particular interest to military families. At present, national Common Core State Standards exist only for English language arts and mathematics, with science and social studies in development, though Utah has state standards across the full curriculum. For more information, visit www.corestandards.org.

CHARTER SCHOOLS

Charter schools are public schools of choice that are tuition-free, serve all students and have open enrollment. For more information or a list of charter schools in Utah, visit the Utah State Office of Education’s website at www.schools.utah.gov/charterschools.

HOME SCHOOLING

For an introduction to home schooling in Utah, visit the Utah State Office of Education’s website at www.schools.utah.gov/curr/homeschool. Here you will find information on home-school rules and regulations, testing information, home-school curriculum providers and more.

Utah Home Education Association

P.O. Box 890
Sandy, UT 84091
www.uhea.org

The Utah Home Education Association was established primarily to support the education of children in the home as a viable alternative to the existing public and private education system.

PRIVATE SCHOOLS

To search for local private schools in Utah, visit the National Center for Education Statistics website and use the private school search tool at www.nces.ed.gov/surveys/pss/privateschoolsearch. Users may search by location, religious affiliation, school type and more.

Choosing a School

Choosing the right school is very important, so be sure to research each one before deciding. Contact the school by phone or by visiting its website, which is a valuable source for school district statistics and curriculum. Talk to people in the area, especially friends and colleagues who already live there.

If the school shows promise, schedule a visit and bring a list of written questions about student-teacher ratios, computer availability, extracurricular activities, sports programs, music programs, gifted programs and grading standards.

Discuss the potential school with your child: what they like and what they didn’t like. Your family’s ability to readily adapt to a move and to find happiness in your new home may depend, in part, on how happy your children are in their new school.
