FARMINGTON — Voters may be asked as early as next year, to support a bond of approximately $250 million that would finance a new high school in Davis County, among other improvements.

Administration officials addressed the Davis School Board on Tuesday, outlining the cost of improvements made necessary by continuing population growth.

The district already owns land in Farmington for a new high school and without it, dozens of portables would have to be added to existing high schools by 2018, according to officials.

Growth trends indicate the need for a new junior high and improvements at elementary schools as well.

The bond, estimated to be between $242 and $265 million, could be on the November ballot in 2014 or 2015, pending a decision of the school board.

Details on the proposal will follow in next Thursday’s edition of the Davis Clipper.
