The Board of Education has unanimously ratified the parent vote recognizing the PTA as the official parent organization of Silver Mesa Elementary.
The ballots were tallied by Canyons Superintendent Jim Briscoe and his staff on Friday, Jan. 22, in the presence of representatives from the petitioning Parent Teacher Organization and the Silver Mesa PTA.
The school’s recognized parent group, the Silver Mesa PTA, won the election by a vote count of 232 to 105.
The Canyons Board of Education earlier this year established a policy to allow communities to have a role in deciding which parent support group should represent their school.
All schools in Canyons have PTA/PTSA as the recognized parent-support group.
