LAYTON -- One year from now, about 900 students will pass through the doors of Davis School District Junior High School No. 16.
Now it is up to district officials to decide what the boundaries will be for the new school.
The boundaries of three current junior high schools, Kaysville at 100 E. 350 South, and Fairfield at 951 N. Fairfield Road, both in Kaysville, and Farmington at 150 S. 200 West in Farmington, will shift to accommodate the new school, which is being built at 740 S. Sunset Drive, Kaysville, said Rick Call, the district's secondary school director.
Call presented the time line for the boundary changes at Tuesday's school board meeting at Legacy Junior High School, the newest junior high in the district. It opened its doors to students in August 2009.
Junior High No. 16, which will be the third junior high school in Kaysville, will have 41 classrooms and will have the capacity for 1,136 students.
District officials have prepared one boundary change map, shown with this story and available at www.davis.k12.ut.us. The map also is available at the junior high schools.
The school that would change the most under the proposal is Kaysville Junior High School, Call said.
"Many of the students, faculty and staff will be leaving that facility and going to No. 16," Call said.
The boundary changes will not decrease the number of students per classroom, according to the district's Web site. No boundary changes are being discussed for elementary and high schools.
An open house will be held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 6 at Kaysville Junior High.
The school board will receive boundary recommendations at its board meeting Oct. 19, with the final decision expected to be voted on Nov. 2. Both meetings will be in the Davis School District Auditorium, 45 E. State St., Farmington.
Sixth-graders attending elementary schools that feed into the three junior high schools have received fliers about the proposed boundary changes, which they were asked to take home, Call said.
Another flier will be sent home with sixth-graders before the Oct. 6 meeting.
Fliers also were sent out by e-mail to parents at the junior high schools.
Each junior high school's community council also will take input from concerned parents, Call said.
He said the district's boundary committee considers current and future growth patterns, feeder patterns -- from elementary schools and to high schools -- as well as safety of students and transportation.
Input on changes can be provided either by e-mails sent to email@example.com or by calling 801-402-5617.
