South Jordan Will Remain in the Jordan School District...For Now

 
Posted July 31st, 2014 @ 11:51am by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

AFTER MONTHS OF DEBATE -- AND THE COMPLETION OF A FEASIBILITY STUDY -- THE SOUTH JORDAN CITY COUNCIL, WEDNESDAY NIGHT, VOTED NOT TO SPLIT THE CITY'S CHILDREN FROM THE BELEAGERED JORDAN SCHOOL DISTRICT.

THE STUDY FOUND, SUCH A MOVE WOULD HIKE TAXES -- BY AS MUCH AS 6-PERCENT -- WHILE REDUCING THE PER-PUPIL SPENDING FOR KIDS.

BUT SOME SOUTH JORDAN RESIDENTS -- AT THE MEETING -- FELT THE QUESTION SHOULD STILL GO ON THE NOVEMBER BALLOT.

INSTEAD, THE SOUTH JORDAN CITY COUNCIL VOTED TO ENTER AN INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT -- WITH THE DISTRICT -- TO ALLOW MORE COMMUNITY INPUT.

THEY THEN PLAN TO REASSESS THE SITUATION, IN A YEAR.
