Board of Education Update – August 17, 2021
by Erin Grady, BOE President
At the August 17, 2021 school board meeting, we met in person at 2700 Kearns Blvd at the Park City School District Ofﬁces. At this meeting, we recognized and congratulated Mr. Todd Hauber on attaining the IASBO Meritorious Budget Award for a third year in a row. We are always pleased to hear from employee groups and welcomed Jake Jobe as one of PCEA’s new Co-Presidents as we welcome staff and families back to the 21/22 school year. We also read a prepared statement from the Summit County Health Department as we are working in strong collaboration to ensure that effective COVID mitigation protocols are in place for the start of the school year. We appreciate the partnership that we have with our local Summit County Health Department.
The Board passed a Collective Commitment on Clean Energy. This document outlines the 4 key action steps that PCSD is taking to achieve 100% clean energy goals for district operations by 2030. Park City is and remains a leader in this arena.
In another action, the Board passed the ESSER3 grant application which brings an additional $1.6M over two years into the PCSD to assist with accelerating learning, extending learning opportunities such as robust summer programs, any capital expense to reduce transmission of communicable illness, and reengaging our learners in K12 school.
In addition, the Board and its ﬁnancial team ﬁnalized its request for funding authorization to implement the master facility plan. In this decision, the Board agreed to propose a Bond Resolution to voters for the November 2021 election. This election and community decision would permit the addition of high school classroom spaces to support a 9th-12th grade comprehensive high school experience, a 6th-8th grade middle school, and updates to the elementary schools in order to support early learning.
We’re looking forward to a safe return to the 21/22 school year. #GoMiners
