Hundreds of comments have been received and a study group has read and considered each one. After careful consideration, three changes have been made to the proposed boundaries.
The boundary study creates boundaries for an elementary school being built in west Layton. The new school relieves overcrowding at Ellison Park, Heritage and Sand Springs elementary schools.
The study group proposes these changes:
• First, a narrow strip of homes on the west boundary of Ellison Park stays at the school (see the map on the next page).
• Second, the proposal also places a group of students east of the railroad tracks in the new school boundaries.
Those changes were made because of four benefits:
° It creates a better enrollment balance;
° Students who were crossing railroad tracks to attend Ellison Park will now receive bus transportation to the new school.
° Two neighborhoods are kept together;
° The enrollment at Ellison Park — where significant growth is expected — is lowered.
• The third change proposes that a small area on the west boundary of Sand Springs Elementary remain at that school. That change improves the walking route for a small group of students and keeps about 40 students, who were in close proximity to the school, at their neighborhood school.

The Davis School District Board of Education approved the revised Strategic Plan in the Fall of 2018. The revision of the Strategic Plan was a year in the making. After meeting with focus groups of parents, teachers, administrators, employees and students, the Board reviewed and cross-referenced the input from these groups to inform the revision of the Strategic Plan.
That revision, which can be found by following this link, maintained the motto of “Learning First” and provided revised Vision and Mission Statements. “Davis School District provides an environment where growth and learning flourish” defines the Vision for Davis School District. The revised Mission Statement is “Educators, parents, and community members work together to create a successful educational experience for each student.”
