Dear Parents and Students:
Eastlake Elementary School's enrollment has been higher than projected since the boundary and calendar changes associated with the opening of Bastian and Golden Fields Elementary Schools last August. To address this issue, the Board of Education is considering the following options: changing boundaries to reduce enrollment (effective 2018-19), changing Eastlake Elementary back to a year-round calendar (effective 2018-19), or waiting a year to make boundary changes at the same time boundaries are established for the new middle school in South Jordan and the new high school in Herriman (effective 2019-20).
Because these considerations could impact your school, the Board of Education is seeking your feedback on the options being considered. By completing this survey, you will have the opportunity to rate each option, including various potential boundary configurations. Each boundary option involves moving students or undeveloped areas from Eastlake to Daybreak, Golden Fields, and/or Welby in order to reduce Eastlake's enrollment. One option also includes moving students from Daybreak to Eastlake.
In this letter you will find information about the process for adjusting school boundaries, and how you can give feedback to the Board of Education regarding the boundary options under consideration. Four proposed boundary options were recently posted at elementaryschoolboundary.com. These options each involve potential changes to the boundaries of Daybreak, Eastlake, Golden Fields, and Welby elementary schools, in various combinations. The site also includes a link to a survey, which is the method that has been established by the Board of Education for collecting feedback regarding boundary options. By visiting elementaryschoolboundary.com and completing the survey, patrons can rate the
boundary options and provide additional comments. All interested parties are encouraged to provide feedback by completing the online survey.
Two open houses are also being held for the public to review the boundary options and to ask questions of Jordan School District staff involved in the process. The same information presented on the website will also be made available at the open houses. Patrons do not need to attend the open houses to give feedback, since all feedback can be given online through the survey at any time. Internet access will be provided on site to patrons who wish to give feedback that evening. The open houses are scheduled as follows:
• Tuesday, December 5th from 5:30-7:00 pm at Eastlake Elementary School
• Thursday, December 7th from 5:30-7:00 pm at Daybreak Elementary School
The Board will review and consider the public feedback it receives through the survey before taking action on any boundary change. The Board will hold a public hearing before a final decision is made by the end of January. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit elementaryschoolboundary.com to find more information about the process for changing boundaries, review proposed boundary options, provide feedback to the Board through the online survey, and access the most current information regarding the proposed boundary change.
