South Summit School District Bond

South Summit School District

With ballots still coming in – there are a couple of races in Tuesday’s election that are still too close to call, and at this point, both multi-million dollar school bonds in Summit and Wasatch County went down to defeat.

The closest contest is in the North Summit Recreation district with only 10 votes separating the decision. The district was asking voters to increase the mill levy on their property taxes to raise $35,000  a year to fund programming costs after the Summit County Council eliminated the annual stipend for the rec district starting next year.  


The South Summit School District has an $87 million bond initiative on the ballot this year. KPCW reports after the failure of the 2017 school bond, the board of education is taking a different approach.

To inform voters about the bond, South Summit Superintendent Shad Sorenson has been walking neighborhoods and knocking on doors throughout the school district.

South Summit School District is bonding for a new high school after a 2017 bonding effort failed. The district is considering some innovative designs to maximize space and offset eventual growth.

The district owns around 150 acres west of Kamas where the new high school will be built if the bond passes. Superintendent Shad Sorenson says that although not all of the property is developable, the majority of it is.
