What is Utah’s Permanent State School Fund? That’s a jargony name that may not mean much to some of our listeners. But this fund is special. It has a special place in Utah’s history, it plays a vital role in fueling school improvement, and to understand its origins and purpose, we went straight to the source: The custodian of the school fund, Utah’s State Treasurer Dave Damschen. In this episode of Connect Canyons we talk to Mr. Damschen about the role of locally-elected School Community Councils in determining how the funds are spent. We also talk about how the fund will be making its largest-ever distribution to Utah’s schools in July.
