Decision not yet made on construction of PCCAPS building Approval of funding from the PCSD school board may or may not be given at next week's meeting Alexandria Gonzalez The Park Record
The Park City Center for Advanced Professional Studies is currently housed in the Park City Medical Plaza on Sidewinder Drive. Student success over the past school year has provoked discussions about a new building on Kearns Boulevard that would serve both as a multi-purpose facility for the district as well as a larger, roomier space for the expanding PCCAPS program.
Park City School District school board members have been presented with several plans and designs for the building, but no decision has been made yet as to whether or not the building will be approved. School board member Nancy Garrison said it has nothing to do with funding but everything to do with making sure it is an appropriate investment for the students.
"It's not that we don't have the funding for it. Our capital fund has more than four times the values of the proposed building," she said. "The funding is available, so the question is whether or not we are willing to invest in a professional studies building."
School board president Maurice "Moe" Hickey said a vote on whether or not to provide funding for the project is on the agenda for the next school board meeting on Tuesday, May 20.
