Board seeks boundary comment at public hearing
The Board of Education will hold a public hearing Tuesday to receive input on a boundary proposal that establishes boundaries for a new junior high school in West Layton.
The public hearing follows two open houses where district officials received a few dozen comments. The public hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m., Oct. 16, in the Administration Building auditorium, 45 E. State Street, Farmington. The meeting is open to the public and comments will be accepted at that time.
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 comments received during the open house and during the public hearing prior to considering a final boundary proposal on Nov. 7. The final vote on the boundary recommendations is currently set for the Dec. 4 Board meeting.
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.
Also that evening, a public hearing will be held at 5:30 p.m. to hear input on boundary adjustments proposed for Bountiful Elementary and Valley View Elementary.

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.
