Board Meeting Report - January 9, 2024
The Board of Education of Salt Lake City School District (the Board) met on Tuesday, January 9, 2024. The meeting can be viewed on the district’s YouTube Channel.
Recommendation on Long-term School Closures and Boundary Adjustments
The Board voted to approve the district’s recommendation on elementary school closures and boundary adjustments. That recommendation included:
- closing four elementary schools:
- adjusting school boundaries at 14 elementary schools:
In light of the Board’s vote to close schools, the district will change the locations of some Magnet Gifted and Talented and some Spanish Dual Language Immersion programs. The goal behind these location changes is to increase access to district programs for students in every part of our school district. For example, community members have asked repeatedly for a Magnet Gifted and Talented program to be placed on the west side of our city. Among the recommended changes, we are thrilled to announce the placement of a Magnet Gifted and Talented program at Edison Elementary starting next school year.
By Friday, January 12, families impacted by school closures or boundary changes will be contacted by the district via email with details about enrollment options for the 2024-25 school year. Students who are currently enrolled in Magnet Gifted and Talented or Dual Language Immersion programs will receive a separate email from the district’s Teaching and Learning department with information specifically regarding changes to their student’s placement for the 2024-25 school year. Additionally, the Teaching and Learning department will also share information about special district programs with all elementary school families in the coming weeks.
