SALT LAKE CITY – Officials with the Jordan School District are looking for public input on some suggested solutions for crowded schools.

Options include adding portable classrooms, moving to year-round school and changing the boundaries that determine which schools children attend.

School officials said they have seen enormous growth, and they said a bond to build new schools for the district failed last November. Sandy Riesgraf is the director of communication for Jordan School District, and she said schools in the district are crowded.

“The schools that are being looked at for boundary changes, they are all at capacity or over capacity, and we are trying to ease the burden of one school to another,” she said. “Any boundary changes that we consider now have to last for a long time because we won’t be seeing any new schools built.”
