SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah – The Jordan School Board approved a $495 million bond resolution in August and placed it on this year’s election ballot, and Thursday night residents had an opportunity to learn more about the bond.
School district officials said the bond will be used for school construction and renovation, and a meeting was held at Herriman High School for the public to attend.
School district officials said they expect the district to double in size in the next 20 years, and they said they want to be sure they have enough space for the children they will educate.
Susan Pulsipher is the vice president of the Jordan School Board, and she said the large bond is necessary.
“It’s the biggest bond ever asked for in the state, however, we have a growth that exceeds probably any that we have ever had in the state in one location, in one school district,” she said.
Other bond hearing meetings will be held in Jordan School District during the month of October:
Tuesday, Oct. 1 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at West Jordan High School.
Wednesday, Oct. 2 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Copper Hills High School.
Thursday, Oct. 3 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Riverton High School.
Wednesday, Oct. 9 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Bingham High School.
Wednesday, Oct. 16 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Daybreak Community Center.
