Late Start Listening Tour

The Salt Lake City Board of Education is considering implementing later start times for our SLCSD high schools.  

In order to make an informed decision, the Board of Education has spent time learning about the pros and cons of late start, digging into research on the subject, and listening to informal community input. This year, the Board hired a firm, Y2Analytics, to gather community feedback in a more formal manner. Y2Analytics reported their findings at our last Board meeting earlier this month. 

As part of the discussion, four different start time options were shared with the Board, Options A, B, C, which you can find on our district websitelink to late start options. At their next meeting, Board members will discuss these options and their impact on our students.  

In the month of January, Board members will also embark on a listening tour throughout the district. Because a change to high school start times will impact starting/ending times for almost all other schools in the district, we invite all SLCSD community members and stakeholders to join us at one of four listening sessions to share your thoughts on late start with our Board. Meetings will be held on: 

Spanish translation will be provided at all four meetings. If you need translation services in any other language, we would be happy to accommodate. Translation requests require at least 48 hours’ notice and can be requested by calling Lisa Alleman at 801-578-8351. 

We hope you’ll join us at one or more of our listening sessions. If you are unable to attend any of the meetings, you can sign up to share your thoughts during the public comment portion of any Board meeting (sign up in person or by calling 801-578-8351) or reach out to your individual Board member. Contact information for all Board members can be found on our websiteboard member page

Parkview is building college awareness

“Growl Bengals, Growl!” In an effort to get our kids excited about going to college, Ms. Miller’s 3rd grade class reached out to Idaho State University to let them know we are supporting and representing them at Parkview.  Her class received an enthusiastic response from the College of Education! They were pleased to hear her class’s goals for being college ready and were kind enough to send some “ISU swag”. They sent a care package full of fun stuff, like t-shirts, sunglasses, stickers, a Benny the Bengal balloon (their mascot), and more.

            This year at Parkview, Thursdays have been dedicated to wearing college swag to show support for various colleges. Ms. Miller’s class was excited to show off their swag to the rest of the school last Thursday! They wore their ISU t-shirts and sunglasses all day!  Ms. Miller’s class is working hard to be college ready so they can go to a school like ISU.
