Bond Open House

Dear Students and Parents of Mount Ogden Junior High,


You have likely heard about the $106.5 million bond being proposed by the Ogden School District Board of Education. The Bond would pay for new construction, thus providing more capital funds for needed repairs and renovations of remaining Ogden schools. Among the projects slated to occur if this bond passes is a new Professional Gateway Center for Mount Ogden Junior High. This would be a huge opportunity for our students. Professional Gateway Centers provide a unique curriculum which helps ALL students to develop skills in a broad range of areas including engineering, computer science, biology, and medicine through cross-curricular collaboration. At Mount Ogden, this proposed center would be built as a separate structure, in the area north of the school building where portables are currently standing. In addition to classrooms, this center could also house areas such as: workplaces for CTE, Computer Science, and Health Science; industry and community collaboration spaces; prototyping and research spaces for product development.

There have been several open houses held to discuss and answer questions about the bond, and there are several more planned, including one at Mount Ogden on October 10. These open houses are a great way to get information that will help you make your own personal decision regarding how you will vote in the upcoming election in November.

Community council elections

Mount Ogden Junior High

School Community Council Candidate Form

Serving on the School Community Council

Serving on our School Community Council is a wonderful way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school. The school receives an annual dividend from the school trust lands. Our council decides how these funds will be used.  This year our school received approximately $90,000 from the School LAND Trust Program. The council reviews and prepares other academic plans for our students each year.  All plans are reviewed for final approval by our school board. Councils also act in an advisory capacity to school and school district administrations.


Every public school in Utah has a School Community Council.  The councils are made up of school employees who are elected by employees and parents who are elected by parents of students attending the school.  Membership terms are for two years.  Elections are held at the beginning of each school year.

Parent members must have a student attending the school at least one of the two years of their term of service.  Employees must be employed by the school district at the school.

For more information please visit .

Please fill out EITHER the Parent member information OR the Employee member information.

 The form is due to the school principal before: September 29, 2017

The School Community Council Election will be held:  October 2, 2017
