Canyons District is now accepting applications to its Dual Immersion Language Programs for the 2016-2017 school year.
The deadline to submit an application is November 20, 2015.
In addition, parents and guardians who have questions about the programs are invited to attend a Parent Information Night on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 at the Canyons Administrative Building-East, 9361 South 300 East. The event will be from 6 to 8 p.m. in the building's Professional Development Center.
CSD is home to eight elementary Dual Language Programs: Mandarin Chinese-English programs are at Draper, Lone Peak, and Ridgecrest elementary schools; French-English programs are at Butler and Oak Hollow elementary schools; and Spanish-English classes are taught at Alta View, Silver Mesa and Midvale elementary schools.
All programs except for the Midvale program are for students entering first grade for the 2016-2017 school year. The Midvale Spanish-English dual-language immersion program is for students entering kindergarten for the coming school year.
A lottery will be held to determine entrance into the programs if the number of applications is greater than the number of space available in the classes.

Coming in June: SAGE Results in Skyward
On June 17, your child’s SAGE test results will be available to you in your private Skyward account. This will ensure student results are secure and more immediately accessible to you after school lets out for the summer. Skyward Family Access is the same account all CSD parents use for annual online registration. Your child’s 2014 SAGE results also will be available in Skyward Family Access for comparison purposes.
To access Skyward:
- Visit www.canyonsdistrict.org.
- Under the Resources tab, click on Skyward.
- Click on the Family Access tab.
- Log in to Skyward Family Access with your
username and password.
- Click on the Portfolio tab to view SAGE
reports and report cards.
If you’d like a paper copy of your child’s results, please let us know by June 4.
Please contact the front office if you have any questions. To learn more about the SAGE report, visit www.canyonsdistrict.org/SAGE.
Calling all members of our community that may be interested in learning more about School Community Councils and Land Trust Funding. The district is offering an SCC 101 class for those interested in learning more about school community councils and what they do. Attending one of these sessions will provide you valuable information about these councils and the tremendous work they do for Lone Peak annually. In no way does attending one of these sessions mean that you will be required to be on our School Community Council next year. These are simply informational meetings.
The Canyons Board of Education has approved a new elementary school schedule for the 2015-2016 school year. The schedule gives teachers time during the school day to work together and plan instruction to better meet student needs and prepare students for college and careers. It also brings back early-out Fridays.
Early-out days will be on Fridays only. School will not release early on other days during shortened weeks. Trained specialists will teach students in areas such as physical education, arts or music during teacher planning time.
Start and end times for elementary schools are being set now, and will be communicated to parents before school lets out for the summer.
The schedule was recommended by a task force of teachers from every Canyons District elementary school and Jordan Valley School. The task force has been working since December to study elementary schedules, take feedback from colleagues, and come up with a schedule that better serves students and gives schools flexibility to set teacher planning and collaboration time. The schedule approved by the Board is supported by 87 percent of teachers surveyed.
For more information about next year’s schedule, please visit www.canyonsdistrict.org.
