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."
Written comments can be emailed to JrHighBoundaryStudy@dsdmail.net.
