Bonneville School District reveals proposed boundaries for new high school

Boundary changes are a hot topic in the Bonneville School District. On Friday, the board of trustees came together again to discuss new borders, but this time for the new high school.

The board discussed the outcomes of the proposed boundaries and put the main focus on how many students they want at each high school. With Thunder Ridge High School under construction, the district wants about 40 percent of its high school students to go there — since Thunder Ridge will be larger than the other high schools. Bonneville and Hillcrest high schools will then take about 30 percent each.

“So we look at all those. Then we just looked at, really, a clean map and said, ‘Where’s a logical boundary?’ and then we ran the numbers to see where those numbers came out. Once we found a right boundary that was really clear and easy to identify that matched those numbers the best, that’s the proposal we came up with,” said Scott Woolstenhulme, the district’s assistant superintendent.

The board is looking for community feedback on Monday night. There will be a forum at 8 p.m. at Rocky Mountain Middle School at which the board will present its ideas and ask for input. There will also be a survey distributed to the community. The board will then make a final decision on school boundaries on May 23 at 7 p.m. in the district office.
