Board of Education Actions & Accomplishments-March 15, 2022
By Erin Grady, BOE President
PCSD Board of Education met on March 15, 2022 at our regular monthly business meeting. The meeting started at 3:30 P.M. at the District Office with a planned legal update for the BOE in a Closed Session.
During the open meeting, we heard updates from PCEA and wish to thank our educators, staff and administrators for strong partnership as we tackle any issues that emerge together. The Board appreciates the opportunity to meet on any number of topics from calendar planning to budget development input.
Dr. Mahon-Reynolds provided the Board with an update on the Coalition for Safe & Inclusive Schools. With participation from our administrators, educators, staff and community partners, we believe in the power to positively impact student outcomes and ensure a sense of safety and belonging for all within the Park City Schools.
An overview of the master facility plan has us on time and on budget for our schools projects with a great opportunity to hit our energy efficiency goals.
We received an update of the monthly budget development process as well as legislative impacts to the 22/23 school year. Currently, the budget includes the third year of a four year compensation plan that will include a planned truth in taxation increase in August 2022.
Our strategic planning areas for budget priority include:
Increasing Academic Achievement
Provide a Safe School Environment that Supports the Whole Child
Attract and Retain Outstanding Educators and Staff
Strengthen School, Family and Community Engagement
Ensure Fiscal and Operational Responsibility
Grade realignment planning and implementation for 2024-2025 school year
We have also had an opportunity to hear about legislative updates – many of the approved Bills went through the last 24 hours of the session. It will take some time to ensure all policy and practical implications of new legislation makes its way to our day to day operations.
The Board of Education is so proud of our educators’ day to day accomplishments. Did you know that in the mid-year academic progress reports provided by the CAO, that ALL student groups are making expected progress and growth? That is an amazing achievement, and we know how hard everyone is working to keep our students on track.
Thank you to our educators and staff for keeping our students at the forefront of the critically important work that you do each and every day.
