Park City School Board

Park City Board of Education

The Park City School Board hosted a strategic planning open house on Monday night.  About 60 people showed up, about half representing the school district and the other half, the community at large.  One message to the school board focused on how new programs are implemented in the district – with some saying it should be a teacher led- not an administrative led - decision.

For the second time this year, the president of the Park City Board of Education has resigned.

In a letter dated Tuesday, school board president Julie Eihausen submitted her resignation to the board, saying her resignation as President would be effective at the end of the month. Doing so she says will allow the district’s business administrator the ability to send out checks until a new President is selected.

 Three Park City residents have filed to fill the unexpired term of school board member Phil Kaplan. That person is expected to be named next week.

Due to some scheduling issues, the Park City school board has pushed back open interviews of the three candidates, who have filed to fill the unexpired term of Phil Kaplan in District 1.

The applicants include former teacher, union negotiator and sports agent Tommy Tanzer who is currently a member of the Park City Education Foundation. Tanzer lives in Deer Valley and has lived in Park City since 1978.

The Park City School District will begin the process of replacing board member Phil Kaplan and will have details about how they'll do that this week. Leslie Thatcher has more.
