  • Argument for $150,000,000 Bonds of Wasatch County School District

    Argument for $150,000,000 Bonds of Wasatch County School District

    Wasatch County is the third fastest growing county in the U.S. Student population continues to increase at an alarming rate. Wasatch High School had 1,300 students upon opening in 2009. That building was designed for 1,500 to 1,800 students. In 2019, school began with almost 2,400 students. Hundreds of students are overflowing each period into the Wasatch West Campus, formerly Timpanogos Intermediate School. While this provides classroom space, the infrastructure of the school, the hallways, the commons area, the auditorium, and parking lots were not designed for such a large population. The district’s goal of maintaining student centered activities and education becomes more difficult when students get lost in the crowd. This growth will continue, as demographers forecast 10,000 new homes being built in the next decade. (Click on headline to continue reading)

  • Argumento en favor de Bonos por $150.000.000 para el Distrito Escolar del Condado de Wasatch

    Argumento en favor de Bonos por $150.000.000 para el Distrito Escolar del Condado de Wasatch

    El Condado de Wasatch es el tercer condado de más rápido crecimiento en los EE. UU. La población estudiantil continúa aumentando a un ritmo acelerado. Al abrir en 2009, la Escuela Secundaria Wasatch tenía 1.300 estudiantes. Originalmente, este edificio fue diseñado para contener entre 1.500 y 1.800 estudiantes. Pero, en 2019, al comenzar el periodo lectivo, la escuela ya tenía casi 2.400 estudiantes. Cada período, cientos de estudiantes deben ser redistribuidos al campus de Wasatch West (conocido anteriormente como Escuela Intermedia Timpanogos). Si bien esta redistribución añade espacio para aulas, la infraestructura de los espacios comunes, tales como el auditorio y los estacionamientos, no fue diseñada para una población estudiantil tan grande. La meta del distrito, de mantener actividades centradas en el estudiante y en la educación, se vuelve más difícil cuando los estudiantes tienen sus posibilidades de educación personalizada acotada al hallarse entre una multitud. Este crecimiento continuará, ya que los demógrafos pronostican que, en la próxima década, se construirán 10.000 nuevas viviendas.

    The Election will be held for the purpose of submitting the following ballot proposition:


    NOVEMBER 5, 2019

    /s/ Keith Johansen
    Business Administrator

    Shall the Board of Education (the 'Board') of Wasatch County School District, Utah (the 'District'), be authorized to issue General Obligation Bonds (the 'Bonds') in a principal amount not to exceed One Hundred Fifty Million Dollars ($150,000,000) for the purpose of paying all or a portion of the costs to acquire land and construct school facilities; including acquiring, constructing and furnishing a new high school and replacing the existing Midway Elementary School facilities and related improvements and the authorization and issuance of the Bonds due and payable with a term not to exceed twenty-one (21) years from the date of issuance of the Bonds?

    Property Tax Cost of Bonds: If the Bonds are issued as planned, without regard to the existing taxes currently paid for existing bonds that will reduce over time, a property tax sufficient to pay debt service on the Bonds will be required over a period of twenty-one (21) years in the estimated amount of $262 per year on a $562,000 (or $47 per year for every $100,000 of taxable value) primary residence and in the estimated amount of $476 (or $85 per year for every $100,000 of taxable value) per year on a business or secondary residence having the same value.

    The District has other outstanding bonds for which a tax decrease would occur upon the retirement of such bonds, which may not occur if the Bonds are issued. However, these outstanding bonds reduce over time such that the property tax due to the issuance of the Bonds is expected to increase from current annual levels of approximately $214 per year on a $562,000 (or $38 per year for every $100,000 of taxable value) primary residence and in the estimated amount of $389 per year (or $69 per year for every $100,000 of taxable value) on a business or secondary residence of the same value.

    The foregoing information is only an estimate and is not a limit on the amount of taxes that the District may be required to levy to pay debt service on the Bonds. The District is obligated to levy taxes to the extent provided by law in order to pay the Bonds. The amounts are based on various assumptions and estimates, including estimated debt service on the Bonds and taxable values of property in the District.



    Voting at the special bond election may be done by absentee ballots to be mailed to all registered voters in the District. Voters wishing to vote by absentee ballot and who fail to receive a ballot in the mail may contact the Wasatch County Clerk/Auditor's office by phone at (435) 657-3190. Voters that do not wish to vote by mail (absentee ballot) may vote in person at the early voting place and during the early voting times established within the County for the general election or on November 5, 2019 at the election day voting center established within the County for the general election. Locations of early voting places and election day voting centers may be found by consulting the websites indicated above or by calling (435) 657-3190.

    NOTICE is given that on Tuesday, November 19, 2019, that being a day no sooner than seven (7) days and no later than fourteen (14) days after the Bond Election, the Board of Education of the District will meet at its regular meeting place at 6:30 p.m. to canvass the returns and declare the results of the Bond Election.

    Pursuant to applicable provisions of Utah State law, the period allowed for any contest of the Bond Election shall end forty (40) days after November 19, 2019 (the date on which the returns of the Bond Election are to be canvassed and the results thereof declared). No such contest shall be maintained unless a complaint meeting the requirements of applicable law is filed with the Clerk of the District Court of Wasatch County within the prescribed forty (40) day period.

  • Wasatch County School District School Choice Procedures   

    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.
