Logan School District trying to anticipate future growth

It may seem small when compared to the much-larger Cache County School District, but Logan School Superintendent Frank Schofield says growth will also be coming to his district. He says it is important to be ready for the challenges that will bring.

Schofield was a guest on <a href=”https://www.kvnutalk.com/11-27-2017-2/” target=”_blank”>KVNU’s For the People program</a> recently and said growth is coming, not only on the elementary school level but also among the high school level as people seem to be moving around from time to time.

He explained that because of the growth happening in some areas within the district, boundary realignments may need to happen soon.

Schofield says the two schools that are growing the fastest are on the northwest side with Bridger Elementary and the southwest side where Woodruff Elementary is located.

“If you average 1.5 students per household, you can increase a school’s capacity very quickly, and their enrollment very quickly,” Schofield explained. “Bridger is already one of our biggest schools. In that setting, look at similar growth realities on the southwest end of the district with Woodruff, there off 10th West and 600 South, we see some ongoing growth.

“There are, I believe, about 50-60 homes that could be out there in the next couple of years.”

Schofield said that means the two largest schools have the potential for the greatest growth. Schofield said he hopes the cooperation and the ideas generated by the public will continue to be helpful in providing for the students and the facilities.
