Speaker gives Ogden schools some tips

As community leaders, teachers and administrators from the Ogden School District sat this week in a conference on community schools, a clear vision of the possible future of Ogden schools started to form.

National Community Schools leader Abe Fernandez spoke to the group Wednesday morning and showed how the dream of building a community around a school is starting to become a reality in Ogden School District.

Although many attendees still had questions, some smiled as they thought of how it could really come together.

Fernandez, deputy director for the National Center for Community Schools for the Children’s Aid Society, spoke to school leaders last year as Mount Ogden Junior High was starting its first year of becoming a community school. Standard Examiner
