At Wasatch County School District, we believe that student learning relates directly to the environment in which a student receives instruction.
As Wasatch County continues to grow exponentially, it has become necessary for the District to examine School Choice procedures to ensure that we have room at each school to accommodate the students within that school’s boundaries. To that end, we are introducing a new School Choice policy, the result of which is to close open enrollment at Midway Elementary School, Old Mill Elementary School and Wasatch High School to students who live outside the boundaries. It is important to note, however, that students who currently attend, but live outside the boundaries of, a closed school will be able to continue attending that school.
