Danny Glasser seeks election for Park City School District Board of Education

'I understand the challenges faced by educators and students, and I want to provide them with the critical support necessary for success,' Glasser said

PARK CITY, Utah – Danny Glasser has formally announced his candidacy for the Board of Education for the Park City School District. Glasser is seeking election to represent District Three on the Board of Education.

Glasser and his wife, Melissa, reside in the Park Meadows neighborhood and have two children in the Park City School District, at Treasure Mountain Junior High and Park City High School.

“I am running for the Park City Board of Education because I am a lifelong advocate for fostering innovative, accessible, and equitable learning opportunities,” Glasser said. “Melissa and I are very impressed with the passion and skills of our community’s professional educators.

“I understand the challenges faced by educators and students, and I want to provide them with the critical support necessary for success.”

Glasser hopes to bridge his experience as the former CEO and executive director of the National Ability Center into a role where he can help students succeed.

“Spending time with NAC participants and volunteers from the school district also motivated me to run for the school board,” said Glasser. “The character of these young people and their commitment to celebrate and support one another is incredibly inspiring.”

“I want to ensure our students continue to thrive on our campuses and as they engage in activities all over town.”

Glasser is actively involved with the Studio Crossings management team, where he contributes to addressing the affordable housing needs of organizations such as NAC, Peace House, US Ski and Snowboard Team, and Park City Hospital. Additionally, he is an advocate for young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Glasser expressed that his motivation to serve was influenced by the district’s recent environmental and construction challenges, ongoing criminal and civil investigations, and the associated costs.

“The taxpayer dollars and time spent litigating these cases do not translate to impacts in the classroom and do not translate to increased opportunities for our children,” Glasser said. “True transparency and commitment to fiscal responsibility will be critical in restoring trust.”

Glasser serves as a board member of the Frist Center for Autism and Innovation at Vanderbilt University and holds the position of Vice Chairman of the Board at Exceptional Minds, a not-for-profit organization in Los Angeles that focuses on training young adults with ASD for careers in the entertainment and gaming industries.

Furthermore, Glasser serves as the board chair at the Tom Sherak MS Hope Foundation, which provides support to individuals dealing with Multiple Sclerosis.

“I have seen excellent public-private partnerships, and I believe PCSD can only benefit from more collaborations in our community,” he said. “We are at an exciting moment in our district’s history, as we bring new facilities online,” Glasser said.

“This process won’t be simple, but I welcome the opportunity to address challenges as they arise for our educators, students, and parents—and to ensure that all of our taxpayers know that their dollars are being deployed thoughtfully, responsibly, and transparently.”
