The Davis School Board has chosen a university adjunct professor as a consultant in reorganizing high school boundaries in north Davis County.
Darrell K. White - an adjunct professor for Utah State University and the University of Utah - will study student populations this spring and recommend to the school board where the boundary lines should be drawn for a new high school being built in north Layton.After working with a citizens advisory committee composed of patrons from Clearfield, Layton and Davis high schools, White is scheduled to present his recommendations to the board on April 16. Public hearings are scheduled for April 30 and May 7. The board plans to decide on the new boundaries by June 4.
White, of Bountiful, has extensive education experience. A former teacher and principal in Weber County, White has served as superintendent in the Box Elder, North Summit and Sevier school districts and is currently associate director of the Utah School Boards Association.
For his consulting work, the district will pay him $200 per eight-hour day, the total not to exceed $5,000, said Superintendent Richard Kendell.
A $28 million high school, approved during a bond election in May, is under construction on Hill Field Road near 2200 North. Planned to be ready for the 1992-93 school year, the high school will relieve pressures on Clearfield High, which is about 200 students over capacity, and Layton High, which is about 100 over capacity, Kendell said.
To deal with growth in the south end of the county, the district earlier this year realigned the boundaries of Davis, Viewmont, Bountiful and Woods Cross high schools.
