Boundary Changes

Nov Boundary Timeline

Tooele County School District is excited to bring Deseret Peak High School and Stansbury Junior High School on board in the fall of 2025.

A survey was created to select members for a focus group. This group has played an important role in determining the future boundaries by providing valuable input, insightful questions, and a comprehensive list of both pros and cons to the committee studying boundary options for our Tooele and Stansbury area schools.

Our goal was to ensure this focus group represents all the schools within both feeder systems. To achieve this, we selected focus group members from completed survey responses. We selected representatives based on addresses and children's current school, ensuring a fair representation across our communities.

Even if you were not selected to be a part of this focus group, your voice matters to us. We will be hosting various engagement opportunities in the future, including Facebook Live sessions, surveys, and a public hearing, where you can provide your valuable feedback.

We greatly appreciate your involvement and look forward to your contributions as we embark on this exciting journey of growth in our district.
