Starting Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2012, Canyons District will begin accepting applications from students who want to take the test for admittance to CSD’s SALTA magnet program.

This year, applications are being accepted from students in the kindergarten through fourth grades.  Current third-grade students now in the program also will need to take the test.  The parents of these students will need to fill out the online applications, as well.

The Request for Testing Form for SALTA — which stands for Supporting Advanced Learners Toward Achievement — will be available on Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2012.  It will be accessible on the Canyons District Web site until Monday, Sept. 24, 2012 at midnight.

No late applications will be accepted.

Testing for entrance into the SALTA magnet program will take place on:
  • Testing Block No. 1 — Friday, Oct. 5 and Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012
  • Testing Block No. 2 — Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012
Families will be able to choose which set of testing days they want when filling out the form.

Other than the students in the third grade, students who are in the SALTA program will be grandfathered into the program for the 2013-2014 school year. The Online Testing Request Form is for students who are not enrolled in the SALTA program and wish to be tested for placement into the SALTA program next year.

Canyons District announces several new leadership appointments.

The following have accepted new administrative roles in Canyons District schools. The positions are effective immediately.

Brian McGill, who was originally selected for an administrative position at Alta High, will be the Assistant Principal at Corner Canyon High. He replaces Alan Parrish, who resigned to accept an administrative position in Granite District.

Justin Matagi, who had been transferred to Midvale Middle, will return to Alta High School as an Assistant Principal. He replaces McGill.

Ben “B.J.” Weller, who had accepted the position as assistant principal at Oak Hollow and Willow Springs elementary schools, will become the Assistant Principal at Midvale, replacing Matagi.

The Canyons Board of Education on Aug. 21, 2012 ratified the appointments.

With rousing cheers — and a few joyous tears — Canyons District on Monday, Aug. 13, 2012 celebrated the pending opening of the new Midvale Elementary School.

With the snip of 36-inch, red-handled shears, members of the Canyons Board of Education, administrators, teachers, parents and dozens of Midvale Mustangs cut the red ribbon to mark the completion of the 85,000-square-foot school.

The occasion was one of celebration and anticipation. An emotional Midvale Mayor JoAnn Seghini recounted the long wait for a Board of Education with a listening ear and a plan of action to bring needed building upgrades to the community.
 
The new Midvale school, which replaces the outdated 61-year-old building on Center Street, is the first construction project completed with funds earned from the $250 million bond approved by voters in 2010.
 
Mont Millerberg, who represents Midvale on the Canyons Board of Education, emceed the event. The 9 a.m. ceremony drew about 150 community members of all ages, and included honors for Midvale principals past and present.
 
At the celebration, Canyons Superintendent Dave Doty paid a special tribute to the men and women of Westland Construction who worked so diligently to complete the new elementary in one year. The groundbreaking was Aug. 3, 2011.
 
“When I took this job four years ago, I held a meeting with all of the teachers at every school to answer questions and outline my priorities for this new district. I distinctly remember my meeting with the Midvale Elementary faculty, at which we spent more than an hour discussing the inferior condition of the school and the faculty’s skepticism that anything would be done to improve it,” Dr. Doty said. “I recall telling the faculty that, while I couldn't promise an outcome, I could promise my best efforts to make the rebuild of Midvale Elementary the new district's highest priority.”
 
The design by NJRA Architects was lauded. “I may be biased but I think this new school is the most beautiful new building in Midvale,” Milllerberg told the audience. All of Utah’s five national parks are subtly depicted in the building design, he said, and the history of Midvale City also is depicted in specific areas of the school.
 
“Board by board and brick by brick, we have built a school that is as good or better than any other elementary school in the entire state,” Millerberg said.  “Our children deserve nothing but the best.  As a Board of Education, that’s what we promised — and that is exactly what we have delivered.”

The new school, 7852 S. Pioneer St., covers 9 acres of the 25-acre educational campus it shares with Midvale Middle School. It has natural light in rooms and hallways. The school has state-of-the-art classrooms, a large gymnasium and auditorium and more playground space. To the delight of Principal Shad DeMill, the new school will have air conditioning and a new heater for the cold winter months.

Teachers will be able to move into their classrooms next week — just in time for the first day of school on Aug. 27.

registeronlineYou don't have to stand in line. Just go online!

The back-to-school registration process now includes a required online component. Just like last year, all elementary and secondary students will be required to register for school online. Please note that this registration process cannot be completed until after July 30, 2014 and does not impact teacher or course selection for students.

Existing CSD Students

To begin the online enrollment process, students who are currently attending school in Canyons District will need to log into Skyward Family Access using their guardian Skyward ID and password (http://skyward.canyonsdistrict.org). Once in Skyward, click on the online registration link and follow the prompts. The link will walk you through the entire registration process. It will also allow you to make changes to demographic and health information, if needed, and to pay any fees. If you prefer, computers will also be available at your school, where someone will be available to help you walk through the process. A schedule is posted below that identifies the dates and times when registration will be available for your school, along with specific dates that you may visit your school for additional in-person assistance.

New CSD Students

Students new to Canyons District, including Kindergarten students, will need to begin the registration process in person at the school. While there, you will be required to present a birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of address to the school representative assisting you with enrollment. Exceptions for records can be made for students who are in transition or homeless and fall under provisions of the McKinney-Vento Law. You will then receive your Skyward ID and password to complete the online portion of registration.

The video found here also provides an overview of the online registration process. 

School Walk-in Registration Dates

Schools will be open for face-to-face walk-in registration. Computer and translation services will also be available in your schools at this time for use to complete the registration process.
