We are very close to making a decision to relocate. The areas in consideration are the Sandy/South Jordan area. I recently came across the stories about the split of the Jordan and Canyon school districts and am very concerned. A town near where we presently live went through a similar rough time due to fast growth without the infrastructure or tax base to support the schools. It was very ugly (trailers for classrooms, split school days, no extra curricular activities). I am not interested in the politics of the situation as much as what is the status of the 2 districts? It will be difficult enough on our son adjusting to the move without having to deal with overcrowded classes, budget cuts, program eliminations, teacher firings, etc. etc. With the budget shortfalls in the Jordan district would it be better to look to the CSD instead? Thanks

I think that CSD is not in as bad of financial shape as Jordan-but all districts are going to be suffering for the next several years. Murray is in it's own zone and I have not heard of any big problems there, or Granite school district too-at least no bad news as of today...

Our kids go to a school in the Jordan district and we love it. We come from CA so our bar was not very high though.
