The Park City Board of Education will move forward with a $79-million general obligation bond election for November. If approved by voters these funds will pay for about two-thirds of the total cost of the school district’s master plan goals.

The other $50 million of the projects will need to be paid for with district savings, charitable contributions, grants, and lease revenue bonds.
