DUAL IMMERSION PARENT ORIENTATION MEETING
Last year, we added eight Full Time Employees (FTE) to reduce class sizes at Trailside Elementary, McPolin Elementary, Ecker HIll Middle School, and Park City High School. We used growth projections over the last five years to staff 2014-15.
We must wait until the 10 day period to be fiscally responsible in adding additional staff. We realize we have grade levels with higher than projected growth at Jeremy Ranch Elementary, Parley's Park Elementary, and Ecker Hill Middle School.
Once the 10 day period from the first day of school has lapsed, the superintendent will review enrollment and if necessary, provide additional support for the courses that have excessive class sizes. It is important to understand that the State of Utah does not fully fund enrollment or growth. In addition, the funding we receive is based upon our October 1 Student Count (not beginning of year or end of year).
In addition, it is important to remember that we are only funded approximately $3,000 per student from the state; however, the excellent, quality education that Park City School District delivers requires $10,000 per student, yielding a $7,000 difference for Park City School District to cover through property taxes and grants.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED TAX INCREASE
FY 2014-15 Budget FAQ
Why is a tax increase being discussed?
The board is proposing a tax increase through the Board Local Levy. The increase is designed to generate $3 million in new property tax revenue. The primary budget pressures causing this action stem from the substantial increased student enrollment increase this year and expected increase for next year. The average per pupil expenditure of the district is $10,100 per student. With the state legislature providing $2,972 towards the district’s total per student expenditure, the district must either reduce education offerings to students or seek to make up the difference in per pupil spending to maintain the quality of education expected by the parents and students of the district.
If your child attended school in the Park City School District this past year you will be using the Returning Student Registration form. Before you access the registration form you will need to have your child's registration code also referred to as the Snapcode. If you do not have a letter or email containing your child's code please contact the school to have it sent to you. You are encouraged to complete the registration prior to coming to the school for your child's registration time. If you do not have access to a computer please feel free to complete the registration at the school during registration. Returning students will also be required to provide Proof of Residency. These documents must be current (not more than 30 days old) and must match the address that is entered during registration.
This proof must be brought to the school on registration day in order for registration to be complete.
Please Note: If your child is attending pre school please do not use this link to register your students. You need to call Veronica Claridge to register. No pre school registrations will be accepted through this link.
The New Student Registration Form is for students residing within the Park City School District boundary that are not currently enrolled in the Park City School District (new to the district or not enrolled at the end of last school year).
ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR CURRENTLY ENROLLED STUDENTS IS COMING SHORTLY - THE LINKS BELOW ARE ONLY FOR STUDENTS NEW TO THE DISTRICT
Students that are new to the Park City School District will use the New Student Registration Form. You must fill out all required information and submit at the end of the registration process or your registration will not be complete. If you registered your child during the Kindergarten Roundup then you have already completed this process.
Students will NOT start school until the Registrar or Administrative School Secretary has received ALL required documents. It is the parent's responsibility to provide us with copies of the following documents:
- Birth Certificate
- Immunization Record
- Proof of Residency
- Guardianship Papers
- Unofficial transcript or most recent report card (secondary schools only)
- Other forms required by the enrolling school (see the school's website)
We are beginning the process of creating an online payment system to collect credit card payments for all schools and PCEF. We do not have a date that it will be ready, but will continue to keep parents notified through email and the district website.
