In 2016 Ogden School District undertook a laser-like focus on students and their needs. A Strategic Framework was created that set the strategic trajectory for success. This framework, known as Project NEXUS, was built on two strategic goals:
Improving Literacy Performance and Increasing Graduation Rates.

Project NEXUS continues to improve and evolve to ensure bold actions to further the academic successes and overall well-being of every student in Ogden School District. That evolution has led to NEXUS Elevated, which is based upon three anchors of work. The Academic Anchor, Social-Emotional Anchor and Talent Development Anchor serve as the foundation for Ogden School District's continued pursuit of empowering excellence through education. NEXUS Elevated will also provide a clear framework to ensure resources are aligned with a results oriented focus.
