“The state school board is adopting new guidelines that encourage educators to keep recess sacred; to never take away recess as punishment or make-up time.”
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.
