FARMINGTON -- A name is the next step for Junior High School No. 16, now that Davis School Board has approved its boundaries.
The board unanimously gave its final approval of the boundary change Tuesday.
The boundary change affects students attending junior high school at Kaysville, Fairfield and Farmington.
The school, at 740 S. Sunset Drive, Kaysville, will open its doors to students in August.
School board member Tamara Lowe asked during Tuesday's meeting what is next, now that the boundary has been approved.
"We start on a name," said Rick Call, a secondary-school director with the district.
Students who are entering the ninth grade in 2011 and currently attending Fairfield or Farmington junior highs can continue to do so, but they will have to provide their own transportation if they live within a different school boundary.
The new junior high will have a capacity of almost 1,200 students, with an enrollment of 900 students when it opens its doors.
With the new school opening, Farmington Junior High School will have about 800 students, Fairfield will have about 980, and Kaysville will have about 980.
Currently, the three older junior highs have student populations of more than 1,100 each.
District officials expect the west side of the county to continue to grow.
They plan to build another junior high along the West Point/Syracuse border within the next seven years.
