Here’s who will lead Davis School District in wake of racism report and student death tied to bullying
Director of secondary schools takes over for Reid Newey, who announced in January he was retiring at the end of the school year.

Farmington • After a painful year that included findings of racism and the tragic death by suicide of a 10-year-old student, Davis School District appointed Daniel Linford as its 19th superintendent Wednesday.

Linford oversees eight junior highs and high schools as a secondary school director for the district and previously worked as the principal at Viewmont High School. He is a product of Davis School District, having graduated from Clearfield High School.

“I’m excited to step into the role at this time,” Linford said in a news conference. “I recognize the challenges. … But I’m glad to be part of the solution.”
