Do you know how many libraries are located within the Canyons School District? Do you know how many items — books, textbooks, resources, equipment and other materials — are in those libraries? And how about this one: Without the help of your favorite search engine, name the author who said, “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
Would it help if we gave a hint that the author was from Argentina?
If you answered one or more of those questions in the affirmative, congrats! You’re either a certified librarian or a certifiable bookworm. You’re probably even aware that April is School Library Month.
If you scratched your head and couldn’t answer the questions, don’t worry. Most of the rest of us couldn’t, either. But you’re in a good place — even better if you’re reading this from a library — to find answers to those questions and a several other interesting tidbits about libraries.
Canyons is powering up its personalized-learning options with the pending launch of Canyons Online, a 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 next 6-7:30 p.m. event will Thursday, April 15, 2021, in the Canyons Center of the Canyons District Office, 9361 S. 300 East. The livestream can be accessed at CSDTV, the District’s YouTube channel.
The application window for fall classes opens at midnight, Friday, April 16. The window will remain open until April 30. Click here to submit your child’s application.
Each spring, in preparation for the following school year, teachers divide their classes into instructional groups designed to promote the most effective and balanced learning environment possible. These groups are based upon the teacher observation, current test results, curriculum grouping, student ability factors, the ratio of boys and girls, the individual ages of the students, other behavioral and social factors, and exceptional educational needs.
If you have specific requests, please use the form below to list any justifiable educational need that you would like us to take into consideration when placing your child. (Do not use this form to request AM or PM Kindergarten sessions. Instead, use the Kindergarten Session Preference Request 2021-2022.)
Careful consideration will be given to the classroom environment you describe that would benefit your child academically, socially, or emotionally. However, the most important factor in class placement is the make-up of the classroom as a whole so a culture conducive to learning can be created. While we would like to be able to honor specific requests for teachers, it is physically impossible to do so.
Therefore, please refrain from requesting teachers by name.
