June 1, 2020 Parent Update from JSD Communications

The Jordan School District Board of Education is considering options that will allow all schools in the district to be on a traditional school calendar by fall of 2021. One of the options being considered is the relocation of the ALPS program from Jordan Ridge Elementary to another school. Relocating the ALPS program would allow the Board to consider boundary changes that will help better balance enrollment at South Jordan Elementary and surrounding schools. Boundary changes may involve South Jordan Elementary, Jordan Ridge Elementary, and other schools. Options for boundary changes will be studied by the Board in the coming months. Additional information will be forthcoming regarding the boundary process and opportunities for public comment in future meetings.

The Board will be discussing ALPS and will potentially vote on whether to move the program from Jordan Ridge during the Board Meeting held on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the JATC-South, 12723 Park Ave, Riverton, UT 84065.
