Ogden and United School Districts approve superintendent sharing agreement

On February 10, the United and Ogden Community Schools’ Boards of Education held special meetings. At these meetings, each board voted to enter into an operational sharing agreement for superintendent services. Per the agreement, Ogden Superintendent Dr. Pam Dodge will assist United Schools as interim superintendent for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year and as a shared superintendent for the 2020-21 school year.

While assisting United Schools, Dodge will remain the committed, full time, superintendent of Ogden schools. Over these past two years, Ogden has grown accustomed to seeing Superintendent Dodge around the school district and around town.

She and her husband currently live in the Ogden school district, and they plan to continue to do so.

The agreement allows the two districts to share superintendent services, which results in a net financial benefit to both districts.

"The ultimate beneficiaries of this agreement are the students of both districts. By utilizing state funding incentives with this shared position, Ogden CSD is able to put $60,000 of new money directly into classrooms,” said Ogden School Board President Pete Bergstrom. “We're excited to work with United CSD as both districts want to maximize student learning opportunities moving forward. "
