Jordan School District


Jordan School District


Established in 1905, Jordan School District opened its doors with 3,000 students, 70 teachers and 20 community schools. Located in the southwest area of Salt Lake County, Jordan School District is one of Utah’s fastest growing school systems. It provides public education today for 53,000 students living in Bluffdale, Copperton, Herriman, Riverton, South Jordan and West Jordan who attend its 57 schools. Our motto, Lead, Educate, Inspire reflects who we are and what we are about. As our next chapter unfolds, our founding principle of providing a quality education and promoting lifelong learning will guide our future. Jordan School District will continue to lead the way in research-based curriculum and strategies. We believe education must be relevant and responsive to the ever-changing world. How we educate our students is perhaps our greatest accomplishment. Quality teaching promotes quality learning. That is evident in our students who continually outperform their counterparts across the nation on standardized tests. We inspire future generations one student at a time. Our strength lies in the hearts and talents of our employees. The teachers, support staff and administrators have developed a synergy that has fueled Jordan’s legacy of serving and educating students for more than a century. As students leave our system we hope they are inspired to continue learning for a lifetime. Jordan School District is considered a state leader in public education. Our dedicated teachers, staff and administrators serve on many statewide committees and work groups to improve the quality of education for all Utah students. We earnestly strive to strengthen partnerships with businesses, increase our ability to integrate more vocational and technical choices into education, and provide world-class development options for students and staff.
