New Practice Gives Parents Chance to Review Proposed Curriculum

Canyons District aims to work closely with parents in providing the best possible education to the students enrolled in CSD schools.  The school-to-home partnership will be strengthened even more with the launch of a new practice regarding the adoption process for proposed new curriculum.  Starting this year, in the month before the Winter Recess, parents will be able to review and provide input on curriculum that is being considered for adoption in CSD schools.
