I am happy that the school bond failed. Way too much money, you could easily find a more efficient way to expanding schools without building more schools. Why can't schools move into pre-existing buildings that are for sale and making them fit what they need? Colleges at times utilize this option. Why can't high schools and especially elementary schools do that? High schools may need a gym or field to play sports but overall you do not need to destroy decent schools to build a new one. Utilize what we have not wanted.

I also think they should double use elemtry schools where you have one session from 6:30 am to noon then 1 pm to 5:30 pm so that you can have a higher utilization on the school without building more schools. You will have to higher more teachers for the increase in students but it is far better than building more schools.

the population is going up for the space they have now. pay now for them now or pay way more later. shcools are one of the only things you can ever see from paying taxes. i was for the bond all the way. our children and the children to come will need good clean safe places to learn. it is the responsability of our age to build for the next generation. short sighted planning is ignorant. the mayor of herimen has influenced an election. where are the principles that he should effect the future of children. bad planning is no planning. it is the utah way now i geuss. worry about ones own self not the future.

I feel like the entire situation is summed up by a conversation with a friend of mine. I was talking to a parent (that was against the bond) but her 4th grade daughter is in an elementary school that is overcrowded and wanted to do pocket bussing. So she wants the school district to bus kids to schools that are not overcrowded to make more room. I pointed out that all of these ideas like pocket bussing or split sessions or year round schools are great ideas until it is their kid that gets the undesirable outcome. What if you moved into Daybreak to enjoy the good schools and perks of the area but your kid ends up getting bussed to a Title 1 school? Oh man, that would make those parents furious. Or year round schools? What if your kid ends up getting the C track or whatever track that is the inconvenient one for your schedule but you are told tough luck, there isn't room in the track you want? People only vote for what benefits themselves instead of the greater good.
