Canyons is powering up its personalized-learning options with the pending launch of Canyons Online, technology-driven educational initiative recently approved by the Canyons Board of Education.
Starting in fall 2021, Canyons Online will be the CSD program through which high-quality online classes will be provided to third- through 12th-grade students. Licensed teachers with advanced training in the best digital teaching and learning practices will lead classes in core subjects.
“Canyons Online will really offer us the opportunity to act on Canyons District’s principle of innovation,” said Canyons Superintendent Dr. Rick Robins. “Families will have more choice and flexibility in customizing what is best for their students.”
Parents and students interested in the choice and flexibility provided by Canyons Online are invited to learn more about the program at two Information Nights. The events will be Wednesday, April 14 and Thursday, April 15, 2021, in the Canyons Center of the Canyons District Office, 9361 S. 300 East. Both events, which also will be livestreamed, will be 6-7:30 p.m.
It’s time to spring into volunteering! With vaccination rates picking up, and the expanding availability of rapid COVID-19 testing, we are now able to safely welcome parents, grandparents, and other helpers back into our classrooms — and it couldn’t happen at a more opportune time.
As we look to finish the year strong, and make the most out of the last few months of instructional time, our teachers could use the extra hands and our students could use the extra encouragement.
“We’re at that point where, by taking the right precautions, it’s safe. And the help is needed,” said Canyons Superintendent Dr. Rick Robins. “One of the great strengths of Canyons District has been having parents and volunteers in our buildings working with our students, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be welcoming them back.”
