Brigham Young University and Provo City School District have agreed to exchange similar-sized properties east of BYU’s main campus. The exchange will facilitate the replacement of the aging Wasatch Elementary School located at 1080 North 900 East and will provide BYU with property adjacent to the university.

The exchange will take place as outlined:

Construction of the new elementary school, which will maintain the Wasatch Elementary School name, will provide a modern school with improved safety features to educate area students for many decades to come. Relocation of the elementary school will also dramatically improve traffic flows to reduce congestion and contribute to area safety.

Precise timelines and architectural designs are under development for the new elementary school. More information about these and other important developments will be provided as they occur.
