  • 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.
