I hope your summer is going well. Here are some highlights from last week’s Morgan School District Board of Education meeting and budget hearing.
Congratulations to our most recent adult education graduates and GED earner. We are really proud of every student who earns a diploma.
A special thank you goes to all the citizens and businesses of Morgan County who contributed to our Local Scholarships program: 105 students received $138,000+ in total scholarships because of your generosity. These scholarships will help graduates who are planning to attend either a traditional four-year college or a technical college. If you are interested in donating to this program, please visit https://www.morgansd.org/43764_1 for more information.
Congratulations to all our Class of 2022 graduates.
For the fourth consecutive year, Morgan High School has been honored as the Deseret News All-Sports Award Winner for 3A classification. Congratulations to our student athletes, their families, and our coaches for your efforts and support.
In other actions, the Board approved the Employee Salary and Benefits Schedules for the 2022-23 school year, the final district budget for fiscal year 2022 and proposed budget for fiscal year 2023, and the contract renewals for the superintendent and the business administrator.
Ongoing discussion includes teacher/staff retention, parent participation on committees, state-wide online education policy and requirements, daily attendance policies, and programs to assess and develop student literacy. Updates will be provided as policies are developed.

The Board will meet again on August 9. The Board is not increasing taxes this year and will not be holding a Truth in Taxation Public Hearing in August.
Our district safety committee will continue to meet each month next school year to discuss safety procedures. Our schools follows the I Love u Guys Standard Response Protocols.

Principals will be inviting parents to run for positions on their School Community Councils in August. Your involvement is needed! Please contact your child’s principal if you are interested.
Thanks for your continued support!
