Your Granite School District Board of Education is currently considering long-term planning and finance options for the 91 schools in the district.
Nearly half of all Granite schools require updates, remodels and repairs to more than 75% of their building.
Nearly half of all Granite schools are more than 50 years old.
Along with structural needs, security and seismic upgrades are needed for most schools in the district.
Despite maintaining a fiscally responsible budget, a tax rate well below the state average, and some of the lowest administrative costs in the country, our current model for financing capital projects is not enough to meet the needs of our school buildings.
Current capital needs in the district, including rebuilds, remodels and renovations total more than $1 billion.
The Board of Education has spent several months exploring multiple long-term capital planning options. In addition to the funds required for rebuilds, the board has narrowed down three options for ongoing school renovations, repairs and remodels.
The Board of Education has also worked with financial consultants to develop the best possible funding options to address the district's capital needs.
Please join the Board of Education and district representatives for a community meeting to learn about long-term capital planning in Granite School District.
All meetings are at 6:30 p.m.
