Ogden, Utah – April 16, 2020 – The Ogden School District Board of Education has approved the appointment of Luke Rasmussen to the position of Executive Director of Secondary Schools effective July 1, 2020. The appointment was presented to the Board by Superintendent Dr. Rich Nye, and was approved unanimously by Board members.

Luke Rasmussen has served as principal of Ogden High School since the summer of 2016. Prior to that position, he was the principal of Northridge High School in Davis County. Under Mr. Rasmussen’s leadership, the Ogden High School graduation rate increased from 76% in spring of 2016 to 90% in spring of 2019. During his tenure, the Ogden High Tigers have also accomplished a multitude of academic, athletic and extracurricular achievements. In January of 2019 the Utah Association of Secondary School Principals named Mr. Rasmussen the Principal of the Year.

In the role of Executive Director of Secondary Schools, Mr. Rasmussen will expand his scope of influence to all Ogden School District students from grades 7 through 12.

In explaining why Mr. Rasmussen is an ideal fit for this appointment, Superintendent Nye stated,“We are grateful for what Mr. Rasmussen has accomplished for the students, staff and community at Ogden High. We are looking forward to his leadership and influence being spread to a greater extent in this role. Mr. Rasmussen embodies the attributes of highly sought after leaders and we appreciate that he continues to choose the Ogden School District to realize his professional aspirations.”

I am sad to leave the school. However, I am confident that the school is in a great place and will continue its upward trajectory. This opportunity allows me to have a direct impact on all secondary schools and secondary students in our District and I am excited that I will continue to be highly involved with Ogden High School.”

Mr. Rasmussen will remain principal of Ogden High School through the conclusion of the 2019-2020 school year. The current challenges faced by the class of 2020 makes him particularly committed to supporting his senior students. “I am honored that the class of 2020 will be my last graduating class as a principal.
