A preliminary feasibility study
indicates that a new school district, consisting of
- Cottonwood heights
- Midvale, and
would be a healthy division. A newly created district would not damage the remaining Jordan School District and there would be no tax increase for residents of either district. In fact, after the debt service is paid by the new, smaller school district, there will be the potential for lower taxes, or smaller class sizes.
This report went public last night at the new Cottonwood Heights City Council Meeting. You can read a copy here
(please excuse my scribbling in the margins).
The ad hoc group continues to meet to work out details of HB 77 (creating smaller school districts).
I'll keep our blog readers posted.
