Orem City Council voting on split from Alpine School District
OREM, Utah — On Tuesday evening, the Orem City Council introduced the resolution of the Alpine School District split.
Although some of the Orem City Council is in favor of splitting school districts with Alpine, the vote is up to the public.
Karen Tapahe, city council PIO, says if the split gets approved by the voters, a transition committee will work with Alpine School District to sort out the details. Tapahe says it isn’t as simple as calling two school districts separate, a lot of work is ahead if it gets approved.
Furthermore, she says the split wouldn’t be in effect for at least two years.
The outcome of the Orem City Council vote wasn’t immediately known. The live stream of the meeting was turned off before the city council addressed the split.
