Q. How will these boundary changes affect elementary calendars and schedules (Year-Round, Modified Traditional, and Traditional)? A. Option A and Option B would make it possible for all elementary schools to be on a traditional calendar. Option A Modified would require an alternate calendar at Foothills and Blackridge Elementary Schools.
Q. How do I know if I will be bussed to my new boundary school? A. New busing routes will need to be established once boundaries have been finalized. Students who live at least 1.5 miles from an elementary school or 2.0 miles from a secondary school (driving distance) qualify for busing. Eligibility is determined using the Edulog program.
Q. What is happening with Majestic Elementary? A. All of the boundary options involve closing Majestic Elementary. All students would be included in the West Jordan Elementary boundary if the Board approves this proposal. Multiple potential uses are being considered for the building if the school is closed.
Q. How will eligibility for UHSAA sanctioned activities work if my home address is being impacted by the boundary change? A. If your physical address is being moved from your current school boundaries into the boundaries of a different school, you will be able to retain your eligibility and participate at the new school for the 2019-2020 school year.
Q. What if my physical address was not impacted by the boundary change and I want to move to a different school outside of my assigned boundaries?
A. Any student who wants to attend a school outside of their assigned school boundaries would be required to go through the UHSAA eligibility transfer process (https://www.uhsaa.org/transfer/) if they want to change schools and sit out the required 12 months for varsity level participation. Additionally, a student would need to apply for an open-enrollment permit to the school they are hoping to attend.
