The Park City School District announced it is taking applications for stakeholders interested in joining the steering committee to oversee a new Master Planning effort. In 2015 the school district worked with architects and designers to identify facility needs across the district and that exercise resulted in a bond measure.  However, it failed at the ballot box that same year.  The school board is ready to start the master planning process in the fall of 2018 which will determine future capital projects for the school district.  Carolyn Murray has the update on this.

The Park City School District Superintendent Search is in the final stages.  There are six semi-finalist candidates who will visit the school district on May 5th.  A selection committee has been named that will conduct the interviews and make a decision on the final selection.   Carolyn Murray has this:
