JSD will Open Remodeled West Campus and Innovations Center Fall of 2019

In the fall of 2019, Juab School District will open a newly remodeled West Campus that sits adjacent to Juab Junior High School. The renovated West Campus will be home to JSD 6th grade classrooms on the south end of the building. The north end of the building will house junior high CTE courses, music, as well as other 7th and 8th grade classrooms. The center of the building will become the JSD Innovations Center.

This flexible learning space will provide awesome opportunities for our students to engage in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math project based learning (STEAM). This space will also be available for students to engage in learning in a more collaborative environment or they will be able utilize quiet spaces for study. The need to make this transition is driven by the rapid growth in enrollment that the district is experiencing. In 2014, JSD enrollment was 2,287 students. Today the district enrollment is 2560 and climbing. Pam Perlich a researcher at University of Utah has projected the population in Juab County to surpass 20,600 by 2037. The recent growth has made Juab County the third fastest growing county in Utah. The greatest pressure on our system is in the elementary schools. With all considerations being accounted for future growth, the board has made the decision to make this transition effective fall 2019. West Campus will allow for growth in each JSD elementary school as a K-5 school. To be fiscally responsible and to make use of a current building, the board has moved in the direction of renovation. This is the best option for student learning in a middle school environment and provide for maximum student safety. As part of the Junior High campus, Principal Rowley will serve as principal for the Junior High School and West Campus. An assistant principal and office staff will also be assigned to West Campus. At the present, the goal is for most of the 6th grade teachers in JSD to transition to West Campus as well. Final personnel decisions will be made in the near future. Juab School District is excited to embrace the challenges of growth and change while we continue to provide a first class education to our students. This summer the district will be holding open house presentations for parents and patrons to share input. If you have any questions about 6th grade transition and West Campus please don’t hesitate to reach out to Principal Rowley at JJHS. (This email address is being protected from spambots.
