School District Split Information

The Central School District (CSD) is the temporary name for a potential new school district in northern Utah County. If voters approve a new school district, the future school board will select the final name. CSD is coordinated through an interlocal agreement signed by the cities of Alpine, American Fork, Cedar Hills, Draper, Highland and Lehi. We have worked together with these cities to study the financial impacts of a potential new school district, including start-up costs, capital facilities and staffing. We also took an in-depth look at student enrollment growth and revenue projections from federal, state and local sources. 

The study concluded that the creation of a Central School District is a viable opportunity that could provide less of a future property tax burden in these communities if they separated from the Alpine School District (ASD). The final fiscal impact would ultimately be decided based on the management decisions of the future school board and the economics, demographics, and facility needs.

At over 84,000 students, the Alpine School District is the largest school district in Utah and growing fast. The six cities in the proposed Central School District have come together to provide an opportunity for voters to decide what school district option is best for their children’s future. 

Each of the six cities are holding two public hearings on the proposed Central School District. Attend one of them to get involved and/or submit a comment during the official 45-day public comment period ending on Friday, August 2. Cedar Hills residents are welcome to attend other city meetings as well. Browse the calendar to see the upcoming meetings for all six cities.

Cedar Hills' public hearings to receive in-person comments will take place on July 16, 2024 at 6:00pm and July 30, 2024 at 5:00pm in the Community Recreation Center located at 10640 N Clubhouse Dr. If you are unable to attend the in-person meetings, residents can also submit comments to the City Recorder by phone (801-785-9668 x503), email (, or mail (10246 N Canyon Rd, Attn: City Recorder).

This decision has NOT been made yet. It is vital that we receive your feedback in order for the City Council to vote whether to put the question on your ballot.
