Some Jordan schools are growing like gangbusters. And they’ll keep on doing it, a new study shows.
The district has swelled about 60 percent in a little over a dozen years, according to the study from real estate consulting group CBRE.
District officials are floating a tax hike to bundle up cash for new school buildings. The proposal is one of a few put forward to make room for an anticipated flood of students.
"It’s a boom town," said Jordan School District spokesman Steven Dunham, "so we’re trying to cope with that and make sure we manage it wisely for the coming decade."
