   A Press Conference for the ShopWest.Org is being held tomorrow 3/4/2010 at the South Jordan Chamber of Commerce at 1:15pm. The ShopWest.org group was formed last week by some local community leaders (Roger Kirkman, Amy Bone, Mary Cannon, Joe Ross, Aaron Osmond, Paul Pugmire, Chris Merrill, & Jenn and Chris Blake). The South Jordan Chamber of Commerce—in partnership with local PTA groups and concerned residents—will be leading the press conference and will be announcing the formation of a new citizens’ group called ShopWest.Org created to drive community awareness and initiate long term support for the financial problems facing the Jordan School District.  Specific details will be announced at the event.



   The Jordan School District is facing a $30 million budget shortfall for the 2010/2011 school year. Over the last 30 days the Utah State Legislature has failed to pass a legislative solution to the budget disparity created when the Canyons School District split from the Jordan School District.  The budget shortfall will result in teacher layoffs, increased class sizes, and cancellation of critical education programs for children in the area. Parents, citizens and businesses in the southwest area of the Salt Lake Valley have united to promote financial and political solutions to support our schools and save our children’s education through ShopWest.org.
