Welcome to Utah PTA!

Utah PTA Vital Issues Conference (formerly Advocacy Conference)

Utah PTA VITAL ISSUES CONFERENCE (formerly Utah PTA Advocacy Conference)

November 7, 2016 at the Granite School District Office, 2500 South State Street, will be the Utah PTA Vital Issues Conference beginning at 9:00 a.m.  (Registration will open at 8:30 a.m.)

The morning workshops on will focus on Suicide prevention. Disturbing new data from the Department of Health indicates the leading cause of death among Utah children ages 10-17 is suicide. “Last year we were over 600,” said Dr. Todd Grey, the chief medical examiner for Utah. “We’re certainly on track for being over 600 this year. So that means every day, on average, we’re going to see at least one to possibly two suicides.” A new report shows the youth suicide rate in Utah has nearly tripled since 2007. It is now the leading cause of death among 10 to 17-year-olds in Utah. (reported July 10, 2016 on Fox News)

There will be a Student Track during the morning of the conference. The availablity to space in the student track is limited.

There will be a Business Meeting with a Bylaws Change and the presentation of a Resolutions to be discussed and voted on by the membership. 

More information on the conference, businesss meeting, and registration will be posted shortly.  Please put this event on your Calendar and plan to attend.

Utah Board of Education rule change on high school athletic transfers.

PRESS RELEASE:

Utah Board of Education rule change on high school athletic transfers.

September 8, 2016

 

Utah PTA expresses our concern over the State School Board rule changes regarding the Utah High School Activities Association student athletic transfer rules.

We believe there currently are guidelines and processes in place which allow students the opportunity to choose where they will attend school.

The proposed changes put academics in a secondary position and make athletic choice the primary focus for high school students.

We are concerned about the potential unintended consequences this rule change may have, especially with the management of graduation credits for students who may transfer among schools for multiple sports, the impact upon the rural and small school athletic programs, the impact on coaches and teachers, and the potential for corruption as increased unlawful recruiting may occur. We also believe this will affect the ability of the local students to participate at their own schools.

We believe this rule change will have multiple negative effects on the Utah High School sports programs and its athletes.
