Board hears comment on boundaries at public hearing
A handful of people gave input Tuesday night on the proposal that establishes boundaries for a new junior high school in West Layton.
The Board of Education said the input from the public hearing will be considered along with comments received during the open house and through emails sent to district representatives.
The boundary study sets boundaries for the new junior high, as well as new boundaries for Centennial, Farmington and Legacy junior highs. The new school helps alleviate overcrowding at those three schools.
The Board will consider a final boundary proposal on Nov. 7. The final vote on the boundary recommendations is currently set for the Dec. 4 Board meeting.
"You know it's always a big deal to me when we make a decision to hear from those who are affected," said Board Member Julie Tanner. "I feel strongly we've done a good job ... of hearing from those who are affected by this."
The current boundary proposal can be viewed on the district website at https://www.davis.k12.ut.us/district/boundary-study. Written comments can be emailed to JrHighBoundaryStudy@dsdmail.net.

Play a part in creating
the "No Hunger Zone"
By Asst. Superintendent John Zurbuchen
“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others” -Booker T. Washington
A significant element of education is the lesson learned through service to others. It is through such service that a connection is established between the giver and the recipient. That connection provides the spark through which the human experience is enriched.
The Davis Education Foundation was established to provide an avenue to assist in kindling that spark. The Foundation, through the leadership of Ms. Jodi Lunt along with her amazing staff, provides the avenue to connect community, businesses, and individuals to the support of our more than 72,000 students. These partnerships provide for an enhanced experience, socially, economically, and educationally for students, teachers, and schools.
This year, the Davis Education Foundation, along with partnerships with the Bountiful Food Pantry and the Davis Hospital and Medical Center, has focused on making Davis County a “No Hunger Zone.” According to Federal Government data, Davis County has over 16,000 students who are potentially food insecure.
