The timetable for changing high school boundaries in the north end of Davis County has been delayed two weeks.
A 15-citizen committee has been studying the best way to draw up the boundaries for a new high school under construction in Layton. The committee needed more time to make its recommendation to the boundary consultant.The consultant, Darrell K. White, Bountiful, was originally scheduled to present a boundary proposal to the School Board this week but the proposal was bumped to April 30.
Public hearings will be held Tuesday, May 7, at Clearfield High School and Tuesday, May 21, at Layton High School. The School Board will take final action on June 18.
The boundaries will likely affect only Layton and Clearfield high schools, which are experiencing rapid growth.
The enrollment at Clearfield, where capacity is 2,039, is now at 2,257 and is projected to be 2,692 by the 1992-93 school year.
At Layton, where capacity is 1,891, enrollment is currently at 2,220 but expected to be 2,666 by 1992-93.
District officials are hoping to open the new high school, 2200 N. Hill Field Road, Layton, by fall 1992. At a capacity of 2,200, the new school will be full by the mid-1990s, said Superintendent Rich Kendell.
Once the boundaries for the new high school are approved, the district will form committees to select the school's name, colors and mascot.
