Park City Promise

Tourism and leisure industries drive the Park City economy - with the majority of jobs being in recreation, entertainment, accommodation, and food services. The unemployment rate in Park City is very low, and the average income and home value is very high. Despite these positive figures, approximately 39 percent of kids live in families that make less than $29,000 a year (for a family of four). This economic divide is reflected in the ethnic makeup of the Park City community. Seventy five percent of Caucasians own their own home, while only two percent of Hispanics do. In addition, 81 percent of Caucasian children have insurance coverage and receive regular medical care as compared to 50 percent of Hispanic children. Ninety-four percent of Caucasian students are achieving on grade level in language arts, compared with 66 percent of Hispanic students.

Park City's promise is to address these economic
disparities and remove barriers so that every child
has the opportunity and tools to succeed.
