(KSL News) -- Granite District Administrators met all morning to look at options for where Wasatch students will attend school next fall. No decisions yet, but the one thing they want to do is keep students and programs together.
They aknowlege looking at how to accomodate students in neighboring schools, for instance, Churchill Junior High is close and is about 600 students short of full capacity.
Olympus isn't far away either and has space for 300 more Jr. high students. Evergreen is another possibility with room for 180 more students.
The superintendent emphasized it's the academic loss, not the building, they'll work to preserve.
Superintendent Steve Ronnenkamp, Granite School District: "It's not the brick and mortar building, although we mourn that loss. It's making sure that we keep the faculty together and that we keep the programs and academics together."
Administrators will make their final recommendations to the school board one week from tonight, we'll know more then.
