Tax Impact Calculator

The Park City Board of Education has decided to put a bond proposal on the November 2017 ballot (the total amount of the bond has not been finalized). In the event that a bond is not passed by voters, the Board has determined that a tax levy will be charged to fund critical growth projects for Park City School District.

We've created a Tax Impact Calculator to help you explore how each financing option may impact your bottom line.
BoadDocs will open; click on "tax impact calculator."

It will look like this:

The calculator has three tabs on the bottom: Bond, Levy, and Present Value (PV).

Here's how it works:

BOND TAB

  • You can change the value of things like bond amount, interest rate, primary residence, etc.
  • It calculates the *ESTIMATED* cost
  • Look for the lines Primary Home Annual Amount and Primary Home Monthly Amount to see impact

LEVY TAB

  • You can adjust the number on the line under Capitol Levy Option
  • Numbers will change accordingly
  • Look for the lines Primary Home Annual Amount and Primary Home Monthly Amount to see impact

PRESENT VALUE (PV) TAB

  • Calculations for present value
      • Please keep in mind that these are estimated numbers which are subject to change. We will provide updates with improved accuracy as they are calculated. We will also provide updates once a bond proposal amount is finalized.
      • Here are a few screenshots looking at **potential** bond scenarios:

      • Bond cost examples are NOT final -- they are illustrations of various combinations of the above facility needs.

Section 504 Manual Update

Park City School District has updated its Section 504 Manual.

The major change is the final section of the manual, which discusses nursing services under Section 504. Specifically, the changes address the procedures for ensuring required services are able to be provided in the event a nurse is absent, as well as the process for ensuring required nursing services are provided on student field trips. It states:

VII. NURSING SERVICES PROCEDURES
Pursuant to Section 504, the District is committed to ensuring that students who require nurse health care as part of their Section 504 Plans are able to receive the care as their plan requires. In the event a nurse is required to perform non-delegable nursing tasks, the following procedures will be followed.

This policy is not a guarantee that the District will be able to accommodate all unforeseen circumstances. Emergency situations or other circumstances resulting in the unavailability of a nurse may still occur. However, it is the District’s expectation that following these procedures will result in provision of the needed services and appropriately facilitate students’ full participation in District programs.

A nurse will be available at all times to provide the required services, barring exceptional and unforeseen circumstances that cannot be avoided after following these procedures:

Regular School Day
In the event a nurse will be absent, and where the absence is known and pre-planned, a substitute nurse must be secured. This should be arranged as soon as the absence is known.
In the event of an unforeseen absence, such as may be the result of unanticipated illness, it is still the primary responsibility of the regularly assigned nurse to obtain a substitute. If the severity of the illness or reason for absence makes the assigned nurse unable to engage in efforts to obtain a substitute, the Office of Student Services must be contacted as soon the absence is known. If efforts have been made to contact all substitute nurses, and these efforts have been unsuccessful, the Office of Student Services must be contacted as soon as possible.
In the event a substitute nurse cannot be secured, the District will make reasonable efforts to re-allocate nursing services from other assignments and notify affected parents of the circumstances and steps being taken to provide services.

Contact information for substitute nurses will be distributed to all nurses by the Office of Student Services prior to the start of each school year, and will be updated throughout the year as staffing changes are made.

Field Trips
Students with disabilities shall not be excluded from participation in District approved and sponsored field trips.

Nursing services will be provided to the extent necessary to ensure equal participation in District approved and sponsored field trips.

Parents are not required to attend field trips for the purposes of providing nursing care included in a student’s Section 504 Plan during the field trip. A nurse will be provided, if necessary, regardless of a parent’s willingness to attend and provide the services.

It is the school’s responsibility (teacher & principal) to inform the regularly assigned school nurse of the planned field trip at least 30 days prior to the date of the planned trip in order to facilitate the required nursing care arrangements.

If the regularly scheduled school nurse is unable to attend the field trip, the school nurse shall be responsible to obtain a substitute nurse.

If you have any question please contact Jennifer Slade, Special Education Director at jslade@pcschools.us or 435-645-5600 ext. 1438.

Thank you!
