The Jordan School District Board of Education is seeking public input on possible revisions to Administrative Policy D200 Philosophy of Instruction. This policy is being merged with AA410 Controversial Issues.

The Jordan School District Board of Education will hold a Truth in Taxation hearing on Tuesday, August 2 at 6 p.m. at Riverton High School to consider increasing taxes. This will be an opportunity for public comment on the tax increase.
- Why Raise Taxes?
- The money will be used for teacher and staff pay.
- The money will provide additional supports for teachers in the classroom.
- Property taxes are not adjusted for inflation and the District’s operating costs continue to rise each year.
The tax increase will amount to $43 per year per $100,000 home value. That is approximately $22 a month on a home valued at $600,000.
Jordan works hard to use resources efficiently and to provide a world-class education for students and a supportive work environment for all employees.
