2012 Bond

Written by

In June of 2012, Weber County voters approved a $65 million bond to build four new schools and add additions to two existing schools. The bond, which did not increase the property tax rate, passed with 58.17% of voters voting in favor of it.  

The new schools replaced outdated facilities that no longer met seismic code. The older buildings lacked modern features such as air conditioning and were expensive to maintain. The new schools were also built to handle a greater number of students, thus eliminating the need for portable classrooms at many of the sites.

The projects funded by the bond were:

Rocky Mountain Jr. High.

A 10-classroom addition was added to the back of the building which increased the permanent capacity of the school. The project cost about $5 million and was completed in 2014.

The original school was built in 1942 during WWII. A new school was built at 2656 N. 2400 W. in Farr West City, and the old building was torn down. The project cost about $18 million and the school opened in 2015.
