JATC South Nail Tech Students Perfecting Skills and Receiving National Recognition

Students in the popular Nail Tech program at JATC South use not only creativity but their knowledge of chemistry and anatomy to make magic happen in the work they are learning to do.

It turned into a winning combination for Riane Bailey who took first place at Nationals in the Skills USA competition. Prior to that she took first place in the Utah Skills USA competition as well.

Here is a look inside the Nail Tech program and the talented students and instructor who make it such a success.

Seeking Parents to Serve On The Calendar Committee

The Jordan School District Board of Education is seeking parents to serve on a district calendar committee to help develop school calendars for next year and the years to come. Parent representatives who are chosen to serve on the committee will work with district staff to develop calendar options that will then be emailed to all parents in the district for feedback. The Board is expected to vote on a final calendar in December.
Serving on the committee will require attending meetings during the day, including an initial all-day meeting. The work of the committee will be completed in several meetings during the months of October and November.
If you are interested in serving as a parent on the district calendar committee, please complete the survey at the link below. If you know someone who may be interested, please encourage them to apply. One position is open per feeder system. We will contact all applicants to let them know whether they were selected. We look forward to hearing from you!

Construction Update on the New Middle School in South Jordan

New Middle School in South Jordan

Excitement is growing for the new middle school in South Jordan. Construction crews made significant progress over the summer months. Large portions of the building are up and work is shifting to the school’s interior. Some classrooms are getting a coat of paint on the walls, while some parts of the building are waiting for roof installation. Part of the parking lot has been paved and crews are working hard to ready the building for winter.

This project will be completed just in time to greet students for the start of the 2019-2020 school year.



Celebrating CNG School Buses

Thanks to $1.7 million in state and federal grant money, Jordan School District was able to purchase 36 brand new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) school buses this year. Our fleet of 105 CNG buses saves the District about $630,000 a year in fuel costs. The buses contribute to cleaner air and save taxpayers money.

Here is a look at our CNG School Bus Celebration.
