STEP 5 – Complete the fee payment paperwork for optional fees.
The Park City Board of Education affirms the principle that a public education should be free to the patrons  of the school district and that barriers to public education should be removed wherever possible.  In that effort, the school board has waived the fee requirements for mandatory and academic fees for the 2018-2019 school year.  The board’s acton is not a categorical waiver of all fees.  Fees subject to this action include fees for elective courses and general education expenses.  This action does not extend at the time to extracurricular fees and other fees for activites conducted outside the normal hours of the school day.  In all cases, remaining school fees are subject to State law and district waiver policy.  Pay fees online with a credit card or e-check via eFunds for Schools.  eFunds allows you to make payments any time from home and you even have the option to make recurring payments or installments.  You can pay for all of your district students on one eFunds account. Fee Waivers are available to those who qualify.  For more information regarding Fee Waivers, click here. Their are also options for community service (en español) Fee Payment Form will show you which fees are not covered by this new policy or by a fee waiver.  If paying for PTSO membership, please write a separate check. 
Optional fees are handled through the TMJH Main Office. Fees can be paid by cash, check payable to TMJH, or eFunds Online Payment (credit/debit card, e-check, and installments available online only). Contact Park City High School for sports payments. Fee Waiver (en español) are available for PCHS.

 

Information regarding 9th grade extracurricular activities:

Any student transferring from one school to another in grades 9 through 12 shall lose eligibility for participation in Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) sponsored extracurricular activities for twelve months from the first day of attendance at the new school. Sponsored activities include sports, debate/forensics, music, and drama on the varsity, junior varsity, sophomore and freshman levels. However, the Association has the discretion, but not the requirement, to waive all or part of the ineligibility based on evidence of hardship. For more information see the New to Park City School District UHSAA Transfer Requirements page or contact the PCHS Athletics & Activities Director, Jamie Sheetz.

If information becomes available that an enrolled student does not meet any of the criteria listed above and cannot furnish the necessary documentation of residency or guardianship, that student will not be considered a legal resident of the district and enrollment will be terminated. Separate registrations and subsequent documentation must be completed for each child you are registering.

District Enrollment Policy
Park City School District Board Policy 10010: Student Enrollment

Guardianship:

To enroll a child in school, you must be the child’s birth parent or legal guardian, and you must be living with the child within the school district boundaries.

Divorced Parents:
Schools are required by law to comply with court orders. The enrolling parent must provide official court documents showing that they are the student’s primary-custodial or joint-custodial parent. If a non-custodial parent wants to enroll a student, we require a copy of their official court documents AND both verbal and notarized written approval from the custodial parent allowing the student to be enrolled under the non-custodial parent’s care and supervision.

Non-Parents/Legal Guardianship:
Notarized letters from parents are NOT acceptable. Per district policy, children not living with a birth/adoptive parent CANNOT be enrolled in school without a legal guardian who lives within the district boundaries. The Park City School District requires that legal guardianship be awarded through the court. The legal guardianship filing process can take some time, but once the guardianship case is filed with the court, the child may be enrolled if the school is provided with a filing receipt from the courthouse. You must provide the school with a copy of the final guardianship papers once the judge signs them. For information on obtaining legal guardianship, see this legal guardianship filing process outline (en español), or contact the Summit County District Court (435-615-4320) or go to www.utcourts.gov/courts/juv/ and click “Guardianship of a Minor.”

Foster Parents:
Verification of court or agency placement must be provided.
