PCEF ‘Raises the Bar’ in PCSD

The Park City Education Foundation formed a "Raise the Bar" project last month to raise $180,000 to hire two additional gifted-and-talented specialists at the elementary schools in the Park City School District.

They met the June 1 deadline, and the district will now have a GATE specialist at each elementary school. The new specialists will join DeEtte Earl, who will now be headquartered at Parley’s Park Elementary, and another GATE specialist the district hired this year.
