Communications

What We Do

Canyons District’s Office of Communications supports and promotes the District by providing accurate and timely information to employees and the public.

The Office of Public Communications is the marketing and communications arm of the District. We assist schools and departments in publicizing their events and programs and in crafting clear, timely and professional internal and external communications. 

The communications team is the primary source of news about Canyons District and its schools. We cover and publish web stories about District events, pitch news stories to local and national media, manage crisis communications during school emergencies, manage the District’s social media accounts, and handle media inquiries and public records requests under Utah’s Government Records Access Management Act (GRAMA).

Creative Requests

Our Creative Team manages the Canyons District brand and its family of 60 websites. We are a service-oriented department that fields thousands of requests each year for assistance with marketing campaigns, re-branding, and print and electronic graphic design needs. If you have a story to tell, we can help you tell it through any imaginable medium, from the creation of videos and purchase of ads to the design of websites, banners, brochures, flyers and postcards.
