#UtahKidsFirst: Take the Pledge
We believe we all win when a child succeeds in school, and that Utah’s success tomorrow depends on how well we educate our children today.
We believe every child deserves great schools and great teachers, but they alone are not enough. We believe it also takes strong families, a stable home life, good health, and an engaged community.
We believe high school dropouts are years in the making and that early intervention is one of the biggest keys to success. Our vision is that every child will enter school ready to learn, read proficiently by 3rd grade, make a successful transition to middle school, and graduate from high school on time, college and career ready.
We believe in the power of students, parents, educators, businesses, elected officials, and members of the community, working together in NEW WAYS to help all children reach their potential.
We believe the time to put Utah Kids First is NOW! for our kids, our community, and the state of Utah.
I pledge to take action today so that all kids have the same opportunity to succeed in school and in life.
