Members of the Utah Board of Education gave final approval on Friday to a policy that compels the Utah High School Activities Association to loosen transfer restrictions for student athletes. Under the policy, sub-varsity athletes will be allowed to transfer schools at will, and varsity athletes will be allowed to transfer under defined circumstances. The policy was approved with a 9-5 vote of the board, despite widespread opposition among the public and private high schools that voluntarily aff...
A tribute to Brigham Young University alumni who died in war is staying put in the schoolâs student center. The university announced Wednesday that it will redesign Memorial Hall into a space for peaceful reflection and meditation, but that its centerpiece â a wall of plaques listing lives lost in conflicts over the past century â will remain in its current location. âWe look forward to the improved space that has been envisioned in providing a place of remembering and peace, where students can ...

The head of a Utah publishing company admits that one of its textbooks â now pulled from Connecticut school districts â depicts a âpaternalistic view of slavery.â A passage in a chapter on slavery in fourth-grade textbook âThe Connecticut Adventureâ reads: âCompared to other colonies, Connecticut did not have many slaves. Some people owned one or two slaves. They often cared for and protected them like members of the family. They taught them to be Christian, and sometimes to read and write.â Lay...
Peter Limon was a teenage sailor in Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. The now-93-year-old was waiting in the San Diego airport Saturday for a flight to Hawaii, returning for events marking the 75th anniversary of the surprise attack from Japan. When members of Uintah High Schoolâs band told him they were headed the same way to perform in memorial events, he was delighted. âI heard about the band, very nice,â he said, smiling, on the bandâs Facebook Live update to friends and family. He shared memor... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
When a Utah school district builds a new campus, administrators traditionally outsource construction after soliciting bids from private companies. That process is outlined in Utahâs Procurement Code, which requires public entities to solicit bids for services in an effort to drive down taxpayer cost through competition. But the sequence is sometimes reversed at charter schools â which are individual school districts under Utah law â with private firms independently building a facility and then...
A nearly 60-year-old feature of Brigham Young Universityâs Provo campus will meet its end in the coming days. Demolition will begin this week on the smokestack of BYUâs Central Heating Plant, spokesman Todd Hollingshead said, as the school shifts away from coal-powered utilities and toward natural gas machinery. âWeâre always trying to stay on the front end of being environmentally friendly and meeting emissions standards,â Hollingshead said. âIt was just the right time for us to take the next ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Albuquerque, N.M. â¢ Universities and colleges in several states are considering labeling themselves âsanctuary campusesâ amid fears from immigrant students and pressure from activists following the election of Donald Trump. College administrators in New Mexico â the state with the highest percentage of Latino residentsâ are looking into proposals that would grant immigrant students living in the country illegally protections while they pursue their studies. Meanwhile, advocates in California, Ge...
Martin Newell remembers that he and his wife, Sandra, werenât in the habit of discussing his research when they sat for tea one weekend in 1975. The British couple had moved to Salt Lake City so Newell could work under professor Ivan Sutherland at the University of Utah â the home of countless breakthroughs underway and yet to come in computer graphics and animation. But Newell suspects his wife held the common opinion âthat this whole thing about drawing pictures with computers was a very stran... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
