Canyons District aims to work closely with parents in providing the best possible education to the students enrolled in CSD schools.   The school-to-home partnership will be strengthened even more with the launch of a new practice regarding the adoption process for proposed new curriculum.

It was a fitting end to a standout season for the Chargers. Days after helping his team achieve victory at Utah’s 6A Football Championships, Corner Canyon High’s strong-side defensive end Van Fillinger was awarded his All-American Bowl jersey before an auditorium of cheering peers.

It is evidence of a student's readiness for a career, college and for engagement as a global citizen.  Last year, 102 Canyons District graduates received Seals of Biliteracy on their diplomas. Currently…
