Park City School District Welcomes New Principal of Trailside Elementary School

Park City School District is proud to announce Carolyn Synan as the new principal of Trailside Elementary School. Mrs. Synan joins the district with 11 years of experience in education. She spent her first 8 years as an elementary school teacher in Illinois, North Dakota, and Salt Lake City. For the last three years, she has served as assistant principal at Edison Elementary in Salt Lake City School District.

“We’re very pleased to have Mrs. Synan join the Park City School District administration team,” says Dr. Tim McConnell, Associate Superintendent of Human Resources. “Several of her former colleagues contacted me directly to tout Carolyn as a highly effective leader and mentor with a calm, professional, and competent demeanor who establishes positive relationships with students, staff, and parents. ”

Board member Andrew Caplan adds, “We are thrilled to add someone with Carolyn’s diverse experience and expertise to the district. She has been instrumental in the turnaround and subsequent success of Edison Elementary in Salt Lake, and we look forward to welcoming her to the Trailside - and Park City - family.”

Ms. Synan graduated from Southern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Education in 2005 and from Northeastern Illinois University with a Masters of School Leadership in 2011. She begins work in Park City in August.

Park City School District Superintendent Dr. Ember Conley says Mrs. Synan brings strong expertise in academics and student well-being. She adds, “Carolyn’s strong educational background will continue to grow the excellence at Trailside Elementary School.”

Mrs. Synan lives in West Jordan with her husband, Brian, and their two dogs, Montana and Legacy. “I’m so excited to be part of this elite district,” she says. “I’m looking forward to getting to know the students, community, and staff. Here’s to an amazing school year!”

Help us welcome Mrs. Synan! Join us for a meet and greet on August 16 from 4 - 5 p.m. at Trailside Elementary School!
