CODE:AA

SCHOOL DISTRICT LEGAL STATUS


School districts in Utah are recognized as legal subdivisions of the state (Section 1, Article XI, Utah State Constitution.) The Logan City School District is under the management and control of a locally elected school board which acts as an agent of the state and governs the public schools in Logan in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations.

The Utah State Constitution provides that a public school system shall include “all public elementary and secondary schools and such other schools and programs as the Legislature may designate” (section 2, Article X, Utah State Constitution.)

The Legislature shall provide for the establishment and maintenance of a uniform system of public schools, which shall be open to all children of the State, and be free from sectarian control.

The general control and supervision of the Public School System shall be vested in a State Board of Education, the members of which shall be elected as provided by law.
