City officials want new name for Crescent View Middle School
Draper city officials passed a resolution Jan. 30 urging Canyon School District to change the name of Crescent View Middle School.
They said they did so out of respect for the former Crescent community and a desire for the school, which will be relocated to a new building in Draper in August, to have a name more fitting for the community of Draper.
They hope the resolution will open a dialogue with the school district on the name of the school which will open at 13133 South 1300 East in August. The boundaries of the new school are entirely in Draper.
City officials plan to follow up with a letter to the school board and possibly attend a future school board meeting to discuss the issue further.
“It’s a way that we open the dialogue in a formal way and support the character of our own city,” City Councilmember Bill Rappleye said.
