The Canyons Board of Education has placed Draper Park Middle School on moratorium status due to high enrollments, meaning that the school cannot accept Standard Open Enrollment Applications for the 2015-2016 school year. Draper Park enrolls more than 1,500 students, slightly exceeding its capacity. The school’s boundary student enrollments are expected to slightly rise in the coming years. The school currently enrolls about 35 students on out-of-boundary permits; those students’ permits will be honored in the upcoming academic years according to District policy.

The statewide open enrollment window opened Dec. 1, 2014, and will continue through Friday, Feb. 20, 2015 in accordance with state law. During this time, parents are allowed to apply for permits to enroll students in schools outside of their neighborhood school boundaries, unless schools are on moratorium status because they are full. Two other Canyons schools — Corner Canyon High and Willow Springs Elementary — also are on moratorium status due to high enrollments.
