The Canyons Board of Education will continue to take input on a proposal to change the class schedule at Draper Park Middle from a six- to a seven-period day. Members of the Board met Tuesday, May 24, 2022, to discuss school-day proposals at Draper Park Middle. The Board indicated a desire to revisit the DPMS school-day schedule issue — with an intent to take action — at a schedule June 7, 2022 meeting. The Board clarified that any decision on the DPMS schedule would be for the 2023-2024 school year. However, through a vote, the Board did direct the DPMS and District administrations to begin the process to investigate whether the student body wanted “zero periods” for more elective- or core-class opportunities in the 2022-2023 school year. The process would involve surveying the community, determine whether teachers are available to helm the before- or after-school classes, and attract at least 20 students for the course. Because of the limited amount of time to discuss the issue before the start of the scheduled commencement exercises at Diamond Ridge High, the Board asked patrons to submit written comments instead of providing it in-person during the meeting. The written comments will be included in the official minutes of the meeting. The community can continue to send input about the proposal to change the DPMS schedule to individual Board members and firstname.lastname@example.org.
