Butler Elementary is on the rise. Reconstruction on the Canyons District school is well underway adjacent to the current building, with steel beams and brick-and-mortar rising to greet students for the first day of the 2015-2016 school year.
In April 2015, the Board of Education hosted a community celebration and open house to break ground on the new school and convey access plans for the 2015-2016 school year. Students will attend school at the current Butler Elementary during the reconstruction. The new school is scheduled to open in fall 2016.
The Butler Elementary reconstruction is financed with proceeds from the $250 million bond that Canyons School District voters approved in 2010. It is one in a series of districtwide bond-funded projects, including the rebuilding of Butler Middle School, completed in 2013, and upgrades at Brighton High School in Cottonwood Heights.
