Fun Fact Friday:  Groundbreaking Soon for Three New Schools

Ground will soon be broken for three new schools in Jordan School District. They are part of the six schools promised in the voter-approved 2016 bond.

  • A new middle school in Bluffdale will be 187,000 sq. ft. and similar to the West Jordan Middle rebuild design. This school will open in the 2020-21 school year.
  • A new elementary school in Bluffdale will be 75,000 sq. ft. and the same design as Bastian and Golden Fields Elementary Schools. This school will open in the 2019-20 school year.
  • A new elementary school in Herriman will be 75,000 sq. ft. and the same design as Bastian and Golden Fields Elementary Schools. This school will open in the 2019-20 school year.

Construction continues on three other schools with work ahead of schedule and under budget. A new high school in Herriman, a new middle school in South Jordan and a rebuild of West Jordan Middle School. All three of these schools will open in the 2019-20 school year.

Two schools are opening a year earlier than projected at the time of the bond election – the new high school in Herriman and the new middle school in Bluffdale.

Collectively, bond projects are coming in under budget and all money saved will be used to purchase land for future new school construction in other areas of the District.
