In a recent edition of the Park Record, the Park City Board of Education commented on educational funding.
We are at a crucial point in the debate regarding the funding of K -12 public education in the State of Utah. The issue has been the proverbial can kicked down the road for many years, but it has reached the point where it can longer be ignored. With the conclusion of the recent legislative session, we have cemented our place as dead last in the nation in per pupil funding. This ranking has been achieved over the past 20 years through a combination of factors.

Details of Lockdown Procedures
On Tuesday, March 24th at 6:00 PM in the PCHS Lecture Hall, the Park City School District, Park City Police Department, and Summit County Sheriff's Office will provide an overview to parents and community members on details of the lock down on Friday afternoon and provide an update on the current investigation.
Park City School District is providing an opt-out form for parents that do not want their student(s) to participate in state level testing.
For details and the opt-out form, please see our Consent for Non-Participation in State Level Testing page.
Park City School District schools will be open on all regularly scheduled school days unless circumstances create health or safety issues. We fully expect our schools to be open and functioning normally throughout the winter, but weather conditions can vary greatly in different neighborhoods and on different streets. We encourage parents to make attendance decisions for their children based on their specific ability to get to school safely.
Additionally, if your contact information has recently changed, please contact your local school with current information. This will enable the school and/or the district to notify you in the event of a late start, closure, or early release.
Again, we fully expect our schools to be open, but we will notify parents if that changes. If you hear nothing, you can safely assume your school is open. If you are concerned about your child’s ability to safely travel to school, please exercise your parental discretion to make the decision that is best for your family.
If severe weather conditions or other events force a school closure, delayed start, or early release, the following procedures will be implemented.
We will notify parents via the local news media, the district website, social media sites, and possibly email, text, or phone in the event of a delayed start, early release, or closure. If you hear nothing, you can assume your school is open. Parents and employees should listen to local news media outlets for information. Authorization will come from the superintendent or his/her designee.
All school closures, delayed starts, or early releases are for one day only.
No announcement means schools are open and regular schedules will be followed.
Parents are encouraged to create an emergency plan for their students. Parents should plan with their students where to go or what to do if a parent is not home and schools are closed, delayed, or dismissed early. In the event of an early release, elementary and middle school students will be held at school until parents or guardians are notified and arrangements are made to keep the students safe.
