If you are in the Park City vicinity, there is a meeting this Thursday night, August 2nd, at 7 PM.
Le Societe Deux Magots Presents a Panel Discussion on The Common Core State Standards Education Initiative
The Common Core has been adopted by the Utah State Office of Education. We are pleased to have three members of the Utah State Legislature to discuss the program and how it will impact school funding, local education control, and curricular concerns in our Park City Schools. The legislators are all members of the House Education Committee, and represent both the Republican and Democratic caucuses.
Joel Briscoe (D, SLC)
Francis Gibson ( R, Mapleton)
Chairman House Education Committee
Kraig Powell (R, Summit/Wasatch)
This Friday morning (8/3/12) is the State School Board meeting beginning at 8:15 AM
Some state board members have said Utah will exit the SBAC this Friday. We will see if that actually happens or not. All are welcome to attend and it would be wonderful if a bunch would show up and let the board see the interest in the issue.
