Plans are already moving forward for High School No. 10. And Viewmont High School is getting ready for a major reconstruction project. Other voter-approved projects will include:
• a junior high school in west Layton;
• an elementary school in the northwest portion of the district based on greatest need;
• and, either another elementary school needed because of growth or rebuild an existing older elementary school.
Work at existing schools will also include:
• continued renovations at Woods Cross High — originally built in 1972;
• adding to Mountain High — many classrooms which are portables and expensive to heat and cool;
• remodeling Sunset Junior High — one of the oldest junior highs;
• adding to the capacity of Mueller Park Junior High;
• and, rebuilding West Bountiful Elementary — originally built in 1955 — some 60 years ago.
Plus, the district would like to increase security, replace waterlines, upgrade HVAC and energy systems, and address a host of other needs at many other schools. The district prioritizes the projects based on a facility assessment survey as well as by feedback from the community and people who work in the schools.
The priority of those projects are as follows:
• Year One — Begin high school in Farmington; begin Viewmont High upgrade;
• Year Two — Begin Mueller Park addition; begin junior high in west Layton;
• Year Three — Begin Woods Cross high renovations; begin elementary in northwest portion of district;
• Year Four — Begin elementary to accommodate growth or rebuild an existing elementary school; begin Mountain High addition; begin West Bountiful Elementary rebuild; begin Sunset Junior High remodel;
• Ongoing as needed — Property purchases, maintaining infrastructure, replacing roofs, boilers, etc.
