There's just one contested Park City School Board race, and the candidates - with very different backgrounds - have similar concerns of the number of programs the District offers, and how teachers will be evaluated in the future. Leslie Thatcher reports.
Park City School District Board of Education candidates Julie Eihausen and Doug Payne came into the KPCW studios today for a debate on their education funding, teacher relations and teacher evaluation. They are both running for District 5, the only District with more than one candidate running.
The District 5 seat for the Park City School Board is up for grabs, representing Pinebrook, Summit Park and Timberline. The two candidates, longtime educator Doug Payne and longtime volunteer Julie Eihausen answered questions posed by KPCW in an on-air debate Friday. Lynn Ware Peek has more.
