Some good things are happening in the Ogden School District. However, questionable decisions made by the current school board have created several problems. The mission statement of the Ogden district is to "Maximize educational opportunities for all students in a safe nurturing environment." Some of the board's present priorities do not maximize or create a nurturing environment. Several school principals were summarily reassigned a week into the new school year, a time when administrative stability is critical in the educational setting. Several school teachers left Ogden School District before school started this year, and teachers continue to seek employment in other districts. They feel they have had little input into educational decision making.
