John Lewis, D-Georgia, that Donald Trump is not a âlegitimateâ president. âRep. Lewis. You are a...
Opponents of a new transfer policy for high school student athletes will have another chance to make their case before the Utah Board of Education. The board announced Tuesday that a hearing will be held Thursday at 5:30 p.m. to receive feedback on the policy, which allows students to switch schools â and school teams â at will if they compete at the sub-varsity level. Varsity athletes can switch schools freely if they also switch sports, the policy states, and can compete in the same sport if... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
When Hailey Allen heard last week that Tiffany Turley was named Brigham Young Universityâs new Title IX coordinator, she began to sob. Her anxiety skyrocketed, she said, and the post-traumatic stress disorder she said she suffers as a result of being raped as a student at the university was triggered. âI felt they had lied to us,â Allen said. âGiven us hope that they would change their ways and then didnât.â Allen and about 30 other alumni and sexual assault survivors are concerned that Turley ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Utah has long ranked last in the nation for the amount it spends, on a per-student basis, to support public schools. But thereâs another set of disparities in state school funding, because school districts supplement their budgets with revenues from local property taxes. An area such as Park City, with a comparably small student population and high property values, can generate more than three times as much tax revenue per student as Jordan School District, despite similar property tax rates. ...
In 2015, Utah lawmakers set aside $7 million in annual funding to establish a new turnaround program for struggling public schools. That money is gone, state school board member Joel Wright said Friday, and the program is facing a negative balance as new schools are added to the turnaround list each year. âWe have exceeded that by about $8 million,â said Wright, who is vice-chairman of the boardâs Finance Committee. âNobody knew what they were doing entirely when they made these contracts with... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
Tiffany Turleyâs main goal as Brigham Young Universityâs new Title IX coordinator is simple: create an environment where students feel able to report sexual assaults. âThe safety and well-being of students is definitely my primary concern,â said Turley, 35, who previously served as the universityâs Womenâs Services and Resources manager. On Friday, BYU announced that Turley would oversee the schoolâs Title IX office, tasked with implementing the federal law that requires universityâs to swifty r...
Utah State University is asking for the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by a former student who accuses school officials of not taking action to prevent her sexual assault. Victoria Hewlett sued the Logan school in November, claiming that when she was raped in July 2015 by Jason Relopez at the Sigma Chi fraternity house, school officials knew that five other women had already reported being sexually assaulted by him. The university is asking for the lawsuit to be dismissed with prejudice, denying b...

The documents, generated during an internal investigation into a series of sexual assault allegations against former USU student Torrey Green, were sought by The Salt Lake Tribune under the stateâs Government Records Access Management Act. But while committee members voted to postpone that decision Thursday morning, they indicated that...
