Park City School District announces schools are closed to enrollment
The Park City Board of Education voted to close all of its schools to open enrollment for the 2018-19 school year. The Board made the decision at its meeting on Nov. 21. Closing the schools means that new students may not be accepted into the schools if they live out of the district. The decision was made in order to "maintain program offerings while holding class sizes to manageable levels," according to the district's website. Students who currently attend schools in the district will be allowed to remain. If they will be moving to another school next fall, they will need to submit an open enrollment application. District employees will be able to register their children in Park City schools.
