New Practice Gives Parents Chance to Review Proposed Curriculum

  • Uncategorized

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. 

On Friday, Nov. 22 parents will be able to read an online overview of the proposed curricula, as well as view hard copies of the materials at each school or at the Canyons District reception areas.  Public comment on the proposed curricula should be submitted via email to  communications@canyonsdistrict.org by Dec. 20.   This year, the District is proposing to adopt for use in fall 2020 a new elementary science curriculum, health-instruction materials for secondary schools, and biology and earth science curriculum.

Did you know that 20 percent — or one in five — of Canyons District’s 34,000 students are enrolled in the school of their choosing, or a school other than the one assigned to them by geographic boundaries? Many come to us from outside the District, including students who have chosen to enroll at our school. Utah is what’s known as a School Choice state, and we are proud to be the school of choice for our students. Under Utah law, students who wish to attend a school other than their neighborhood school may apply to transfer to another school by submitting a Standard Open Enrollment Form. In Canyons District, families are able to submit these forms online from the comfort of their home or office using our Online Permit Portal. For the coming school year, the window for applying for the school-choice permits will open Dec. 1 and end Feb. 21. School transfers are approved when space is available and on a first-come, first-served basis.
