The Board of Education on Jan. 11, 2011 received updates from architects on the development of this project. 
NJRA Architects presented a proposal that incorporates the Utah landscape to use the school as a teaching tool.  It includes a grand staircase gathering space, a fault line in the rooftop design, a Delicate Arch-inspired entryway, with natural light and more open space and an outdoor commons than in the current school. The proposal also was presented to the Midvale City Council, and has been presented to residents at a Town Meeting. The Board will continue discussions on the site plan.
  • New high school in Draper: Community input has been taken at three public meetings; concerns centered on traffic. A comprehensive traffic study is underway. Meetings with the Draper design-review committee and Planning Commission continue.
  • Midvale Elementary: A community input meeting is scheduled Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. at the school. Superintendent Doty and CFO Keith Bradford recommended the Board examine the school's size in terms of its student achievement goals.
  • Albion Middle School: Preliminary drafts address lighting, seismic safety and closing off of open classrooms.
  • Butler Middle: Discussion with the school community has centered on whether rebuild on site or on adjacent property, and how, if at all, Butler Elementary school might fit into a larger campus proposal. The Board voted Dec. 7 to hire VCBO, the same firm designing Butler Middle, for Butler Elementary to explore possibilities for both schools. Community input meetings are expected after the holidays.
  • Sandy Elementary: The school, rebuilt following a fire a few years ago, will be retrofitted to meet seismic code.
The Midvale Elementary community soon will receive a new school. The school's scheduled rebuild will be the first-ever significant upgrade for the 60-year-old school, located at 362 Center St. (7720 South). Midvale Elementary is one of four schools in Canyons School District receiving special Title I federal money targeted to educate children in low-income neighborhoods.
