Do not further splinter this school district. It ends up costing millions of tax dollars. Jordan School District has built some beautiful schools in South Jordan. Leave it alone!

Jordan, Canyons and every other school district will always face the threat of a split as long as their board members and leadership focus more on serving the needs of the bureaucracy and less on the needs of the constituents they were elected to serve. Too many school board members forget that they were elected to represent the people in their district, not the school district. They are supposed to govern the school district but most of the time the bureaucrats tell the school boards what to do. Until education learns how to be a part of the community instead of apart from the community they will face these threats because people are dissatisfied and are not allowed to be engaged in the mission of education.

Did West Jordan not learn anything at all from the split? All they will be doing is creating another bureaucracy that is not needed. If they don't like the direction of the current JSD School Board then work to get them replaced.
