WEST JORDAN — The Jordan School Board approved a $495 million bond Tuesday that will show up on the ballot Nov. 5.

Money will be used to build eight new elementary schools, a middle school, a new high school and make improvements to existing buildings in the Jordan School District.

If the bond is approved homeowners would pay about $10 a year per $100,000 in property value.

There was no public comment Tuesday but residents will have the opportunity to voice their concerns in upcoming meetings.
