The philosophy of Uinta County School District Number One is guided by the conviction that every child has an equal right to the best program of education that can be provided. This education program must be democratically developed to provide experiences that will allow each individual to develop their talents, skills, and abilities to the fullest.
The curriculum of the district is the true measure of the educational opportunity provided young people. Therefore it is the philosophy of this District to provide educational experiences within the curriculum offerings sufficiently extensive and varied to satisfy the needs of individual students regardless of the range of their abilities, their achievements.
Careful consideration will be given each year, as the district budget is developed, to prioritization of funds to allow success in meeting curriculum goals and offerings.

Budget work sessions with the Board of Trustees will include discussion concerning funds for textbooks, instructional supplies and instructional equipment.
