The Wasatch School District is holding an open house on Wednesday. A $150 million school bond for two new schools is under consideration and the Board of Education wants public input.

The Wasatch School District Board of Education will provide information, answer questions and seek input from the community on the $150 million bond. It would fund a secondhigh school and replace the existing Midway Elementary school.

If unable to make the meeting they’ll accept comments through the email bond@wasatch.edu.

A new high school would be built on land the district recently purchased. It’s located west of Heber and North of Midway Lane.

Boundaries for the new high school would approximately follow the middle school configurations and result in two 4A sized high schools.

The bond would also fund a new elementary school in Midway which would replace the current school. It would be built south of the current elementary school on land the district recently purchased.

The district noted that many factors play into the costs of building a new school. The $150 million estimate is based on similarly sized schools recently built in Utah.

A final bond proposal will not happen until mid-August.

Any school district that seeks to issue new bonds must have a resolution calling for an election at a minimum of seventy-five (75) days before the election.

The meeting is Wednesday at 6:30 PM at Wasatch High School Wasatch School District informational videos can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/WasatchCountySchoolDistrict/videos/349310585789468/
