Boundary study well underway
In the fields of west Layton, another elementary school is beginning to take shape.
The new school is being built to handle growth in that area of the school district. With the construction of a new school, boundary adjustments must also be made. Establishing boundaries for Elementary School No. 63—located at 2504 West Sunburst Drive — adjusts boundaries of other nearby elementary schools, as well.
The Board of Education has hired consultant Dr. Darrell White to oversee the boundary study. The board also identified three goals that must be considered as the study moves forward. Those are:
• Prepare boundaries for the new elementary school in west Layton;
• Reduce enrollment at overcrowded elementary schools in the boundary study area (Ellison Park, Heritage and Sand Springs elementaries);
• Balance enrollments of the elementary schools in the boundary study area to the extent practical.
Before the district gets too much further into the study, it wants to include you in the process. District representatives will soon meet with members of your school community council and they’d like to hear from you.
The proposed boundaries can be viewed by clicking on the link in the left navigation menu.
If you have questions, comments or concerns about the boundary study, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
An open house also will be held from 6-8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 26, at Shoreline Junior High, 1150 S. Westside Drive, Layton. Maps of the proposed boundaries will be on display and district representatives will be there to answer questions and listen to comments and concerns.
District staff will make boundary recommendations to the Board of Education at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 6, in the Davis School District Auditorium, 45 E. State St., Farmington. Final board approval is expected at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 3, in the Davis School District Auditorium. The new school, which will open in the fall of 2020, is part of the bond which voters approved in November 2015.
