District outlines High School No. 10 boundary study process
In a field in west Farmington, just north of Glovers Lane, a new high school is beginning to take shape.
Just as each part of the school is being carefully constructed, the boundaries for the school will need to be prudently created. That process will focus on community input to help determine school boundaries.
The Davis School District will begin the boundary study in April with possible final approval by the Board of Education in December. A tentative timeline is outlined — follow the link on the left. All dates may be subject to change as the district receives community input.
The Board of Education has appointed Dr. Darrell White, a former deputy of education for Gov. Mike Leavitt and Davis superintendent, as a boundary study consultant. He will oversee all boundary discussions and work with stakeholders in making sure there is community input.
While it is natural that some may speculate on where the boundaries may be drawn and which high schools may be affected, no boundary lines have been drawn. That initial draft will be drawn only after receiving public input on the priorities that should be considered as the study begins and meeting with focus groups. Stakeholders will be invited to participate in that survey in early April through an e-mail sent out by the district.
Davis School District will seek community input throughout the process through focus groups, meetings with community councils, open houses and an e-mail specifically set up to receive concerns and answer any questions.
