Smithfield parents discuss new school boundaries

Superintendent Steve Norton began Tuesday evening with an explanation of how the district goes about setting boundaries. “The first thing you need to understand is we are a district that does not have neighborhood schools,” said Dr. Norton to the roughly forty attending the public meeting over proposed boundaries for five north Cache elementary schools. “We have schools located in some neighborhoods, but we are a community of so many different communities that we can’t have a school in every neighborhood.””We are very careful where we place new schools,” Norton continued. For people who live near a school, they do try to accommodate them. “You ought to be able to go to a school you can see.””We try to use natural boundaries,” he added. “In Smithfield you have the golf course and you have Smithfield Canyon. You will that we used those as a natural boundary.”
