The past few weeks have been very eventful for Jordan District, let's dissect!

Agriculture Days 2023 was a huge success! Seventh grade students from all of Jordan District learned about various aspects of agriculture from how to shear a sheep to the mechanics of a tractor’s engine and all the careers in between, not too mention, high school programs and college opportunities that are available in agriculture. We love being able to provide this wonderful hands-on learning experience to our 7th graders!
Juniors and Seniors from Jordan School District took time out of their school day to attend 'Pathways to Professions Career and Technical Education Showcase’ at the Mountain America Expo Center. This event was a way to connect students with prospective employers and industry professionals and let students explore career pathways.
Finally, our very own Brenda Straley and Jason Skidmore were featured on this Fox 13 news bit. They highlighted what YouScience is and the impact it's having by showing students their strengths through aptitude testing. (Click on the photo to read more on this article)
