What a year!  In the past 365 days, Canyons District, which was founded on July 1, 2009, continued its drive to provide a world-class education to the children who attend public school in Cottonwood Heights, Draper, Midvale, Sandy and the town of Alta. The 2017-2018 school year — CSD’s ninth academic year — was marked by sky-high achievements, including state-title victories by all five of CSD’s five traditional high schools, the passage of a $283 million bond to build and improve schools, the naming of National Merit Scholars and Sterling Scholars, and an estimated $32 million in scholarship offers for the…
The bright lights of Broadway beckoned to Bennett Chew. The Hillcrest High graduate last week traveled to the Great White Way to learn from the singing and dancing superstars of the stage.  Chew earned the right to attend the National High School Musical Theater Awards — and to be considered for a Jimmy Award, the student equivalent of a Tony Award — by winning the Best Actor category at the 8th annual Utah High School Musical Theater Awards in May at the Eccles Theater in Salt Lake.  The University of Utah-bound student, who starred as Jean Valjean in Hillcrest’s “Les…

Available Now: 2018 SAGE Test Results

Your child’s SAGE test results are now available online. Parents and guardians can access their children’s results via their private Skyward Family Access account, the same account used for annual online registration.

Some CSD schools may have also provided parents with paper copies of SAGE test results.  SAGE exams are administered in late spring to all Utah students in grades 3-10, and to high school seniors enrolled in chemistry and physics courses. SAGE test results are…
Did you know there are more jobs in the trades—carpentry, electrical, plumbing, and welding—than there trained Utahns to fill them? Construction, along with the health and personal care industries, will account for one-third of all new jobs in the U.S. through 2022, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Many of these jobs pay above Utah’s median wage, and through the Canyons Technical Education Center (CTEC), it’s possible for students to graduate from high school with the certifications and professional licenses needed to land one.
