This year, Herriman High opened its doors to 2,700 students, and built eight portables. Nov. 8, 2016, Utah voters approved the Jordan School District bond of $245 million. This is a direct response to the overcrowdedness of schools in the district: six new schools will be built. Jordan School District released a statement upon the passing of the bond, “The ability to build new schools will impact our students, teachers, staff and communities for years to come. It will help Jordan School District continue to serve the educational needs of every child, every day as we welcome an additional 9,250 students into our schools over the next five years.” If the bond had not passed, Herriman High would be home to over 4,000 students in a matter of years. To remedy this, a high school is being built on Mt. View Corridor in 2020. The bond will cost average homeowners $16.80 per year, and taxes for the bond are expected to gradually go down. A small cost, to ensure the educational needs of the children in our community are met.
