After reviewing considerable feedback and information gathered through public surveys and public hearings, the Board of Education developed and unanimously approved 2019-20 boundaries, which they called option D.
Here are the maps for the 2019-20 approved boundaries.
Please note the following regarding the final boundaries:
- If there is no color on the map for your elementary school, then your school’s boundaries do not change.
- Fox Hollow, Blackridge and South Jordan Elementary Schools will remain on a year-round calendar. All other elementary schools will be on a traditional calendar.
- Majestic Elementary is scheduled to close after the 2019-20 school year, with future building use to be determined over the coming year.
- An updated permit policy was also approved along with the guidelines posted below. More information will be e-mailed to parents in the coming days.
- Fort Herriman, Oquirrh Hills, and South Hills Middle Schools will change boundaries to middle school transition boundaries for the 2019-20 school year, then to final middle school boundaries for the 2020-21 school year. Although these schools would experience two boundary changes, boundaries would only be moved once at most for each student.
For more information including survey results, please visit boundary.jordandistrict.org.
After receiving feedback on previous boundary Options A and B, the Board developed boundary Option C. Feedback will be gathered through a new survey until midnight on Friday, November 9th. A vote to finalize boundaries is scheduled for the Board’s public meeting on November 13th. After that meeting, final boundary decisions will be sent through Skyward to every parent.
Please note the following regarding Option C:
- Some neighborhoods that would not have changed boundaries under Option A or Option B would change boundaries under Option C. Please review the Option C maps carefully.
