Let’s sing it together: Happy birthday to you, Canyons District. Happy birthday to you.
Canyons District officially became a school district the first to be created in Utah in nearly a century on July 1, 2009. The Board of Education and Administration thank the District’s teachers, staff, students, parents and community partners for all the hard work and dedication they’ve shown in the support of our schools.
Among our accomplishments: We’ve built and improved several schools, including Corner Canyon High and Butler and Draper Park middle schools, which open this fall; implemented a comprehensive school boundary realignment; put into place a grade reconfiguration plan that provides students additional academic offerings; launched the first college- and careeer-ready high school diplomas in Utah; received accolades for our budgets; increased student achievement; started the Canyons Education Foundation, which has given nearly $125,000 to teachers for innovative educational projects; and won numerous state athletic, academic and arts trophies.
Happy birthday, Canyons. Happy birthday, indeed.
