Let’s Plan for the Future of Wasatch County Schools

Wasatch County is one of the fastest growing counties in the country – with no end in sight. While the school district cannot control growth, we can plan for a growing student population to continue producing the best educational outcomes possible. A Facilities Master Plan will assess the condition and suitability of our current buildings; identify the public’s vision for how buildings can support our education goals; and provide options for addressing growth.

In September 2021, Wasatch County School District launched a year-long effort to develop a plan to direct growth over the next 20 years. This process will evaluate existing conditions within the district, identify the district’s immediate educational needs, and engage the public in a conversation about the community’s long-term education goals.
