CSD Families Can Use Online Tool to Submit Space-Available Bus Permit Requests

Canyons District will use an online tool for parents to request a transportation space-available permit for the 2020-2021 school year.  

The e-application system will begin accepting space-available permit-request forms at 8 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 3. Paper forms will not be accepted. Families without computer or Internet access at home may use the computers in the lobbies of schools to help facilitate Online Registration.  

As a reminder, by statute, CSD is reimbursed by the Utah State Office of Education for busing provided to students enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade who live at least 1.5 miles from school and to students enrolled in grades seven through 12 who live at least 2 miles from school.  

This creates a quandary for families in CSD middle schools whose sixth graders qualify for transportation services — but their seventh- and eighth-grade siblings and neighbors do not.  It becomes an even stickier issue when last year’s sixth-graders, who were accustomed to receiving transportation services, no longer qualify for busing services because they have advanced into the seventh grade.

To address the issue, CSD has developed a protocol for all non-qualifying students — even those in elementary and high schools — to request transportation services so they can ride with their qualifying siblings or neighbors if there is space available on the bus.

The space-available permits will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. CSD also will take into consideration any social distancing required as a result of the COVID-19 health orders as decided by state and local government, education, and health officials.  

Parents can check their child’s bus eligibility at canyonsdistrict.org.

Families will be notified about whether they have received a permit by Sept. 14.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
