Utah Teacher Careers, Certification & Salaries
Utah has a population of roughly 2.8 million, 80% of which live on the Wasatch Front, a stretch of towns and cities centered on Salt Lake City. That leaves a lot of empty countryside, but oddly it is also one of the most urbanized states in the nation. The state has had a fairly rapid rate of growth over the last twenty years, with new industries moving in bringing lots of new families with them. The school districts in Utah have had to respond. There are several districts that serve the Salt Lake City area; the largest of them, the Granite School District, has over 70,000 students.
