Jordan School District patrons speak out

A recent survey by the Jordan School District found:

About four out of five respondents approve raising taxes for a bonding plan to raise for money for swelling enrollment. Twenty percent gave a flat-out “no.”

For school buildings, patrons feel safety is most important, followed by cost effectiveness. Technology and looks came in last.

For cost-cutting measures, 80 percent of respondents said they approved of using mobile classrooms. Three quarters OK’d the current year-round schedule. Least popular: busing students to schools in other areas and splitting the school day in two.
