The 2013-2014 school calendar has been approved by the Canyons Board of Education. The calendar, which lists Aug. 19, 2013, as the first day of school, includes slight adjustments to accommodate for grade reconfiguration in the 2013-2014 school year, during which ninth grade will be moved to high school, middle schools will house sixth- through eighth-grades and elementary schools will welcome kindergarten through fifth-grade students. One change includes placing middle schools on the same school year calendar as elementary schools. The Brighton High School trimester school year calendar remains similar to what it has been in the past. The calendar was approved by the Board on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013. It had been drafted by a Calendar Committee of 18 parents, teachers, District Office representatives, school administrators and education support professionals.
