There have been good things happening in the Ogden School District. There is passion to see that students’ test scores improve and students graduate with the skills they will need for the work they do and the lives they will lead.
OSD is in the unique position of being one of few Utah school districts that employ professionally-trained, certified teacher librarians in all schools within the district. The primary purpose of the library media program is to empower students to be critical thinkers, make informed choices and be problem solvers. Dr. William A Sederburg, recently retired Utah Commissioner of Higher Education, said “Preserving and expanding school libraries are essential to our success in this information-intensive age. The school library isn’t your mother’s library anymore.”
