Park City School District

Committees

The Park City Board of Education will serve on committees as requested or required on the part of a given committee or the Board.   Participation on committees serves to provide the Board with an opportunity to gain more knowledge in specific areas and improve communication between the Board and District personnel and other constituents. The role is one of liaison.  Board members do not retain voting rights on committees unless clearly specified in advance.  It will be each board member’s responsibility to provide reports on committee activities to the rest of the Board.
