District hosts hour of code
The Park City School District is participating in computer science education week this week by having students participate in an hour of coding, according to the district’s website. Families can participate in the challenge by visiting https://hourofcode.com/us/learn.
“Focus on the data outcomes, on the academic achievement outcomes, on the rankings that we have. The school board is happy with the direction of the district,” said Andrew Caplan, school board president. “We can always do a better job, especially with things that aren’t our core expertise like building and land management.”
