What will the new Butler Elementary provide for students and community members? Plans to rebuild the school as part of the $250 million voter-approved bond are in the works. Architect VCBO is working on site plan concepts at the new school, which would be built on the same campus adjacent to the current footprint, according to the company's presentation to the Canyons Board of Education Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014.

Possible site concepts include "kitchen tables" outside the classrooms for student collaboration and window seats in classrooms. Classroom wings would include a support room for coaching, testing and other support; restrooms; and secure exterior doors to a courtyard area for additional learning opportunities. The building will include a secure vestibule entry.

The new Butler Elementary would be built on a smaller footprint, but have more space than the current school because it would have two levels and be built to hold 800 students – about 200 more than currently attend the school. The idea is to lure some students back to CSD who are attending out-of-district schools on special permits, Canyons CFO Leon Wilcox said.

To listen to VCBO's discussion, visit BoardDocs and click The Oct. 21, 2014 Agenda, Item 2D.
The Canyons Board of Education unanimously voted to rebuild Alta View Elementary  with proceeds from the $250 million bond voters approved in June 2010.

The Board action came at its Oct. 21, 2014 Business Meeting, and  followed months of public input from White City township officials, parents, and the principals and School Community Councils at Alta View and neighboring Bell View and Edgemont elementary schools. Alta View was identified as the school to be rebuilt largely because of its advanced age and condition.

The Board's vote allows the process to design the new school to begin. CSD's school design process includes community members, employees and school and District leaders. The rebuilt Alta View Elementary is slated to open in 2017.
