School bells will ring on Monday, Aug. 16 — the first day of the 2021-2022 school year. But before the first classes begin, students will rise early, eat a healthy breakfast, and head out the door to walk with friends, ride in the neighborhood carpool — or hop on the school bus.
To the end of being prepared for the back-to-school buzz surrounding the first day, Canyons District encourages families to review student-transportation plans for all of their children. Click here to use CSD’s “Bus Eligibility and School Locator” online tool.
Parents of students who do not qualify for transportation can submit an online application for space-available permits. Canyons will begin accepting those applications at 8 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 2.
Paper forms will not be accepted. Families without computer or Internet access at home may use the computers in the lobbies of schools that also are being used for Online Registration, which also starts on Monday, Aug. 2.
Please be aware that Utah laws governing transportation funding may affect some Canyons District middle school students.
Canyons District receives funding for busing provided to students enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade who live at least 1 ½ miles from school and students enrolled in grades seven through 12 who live at least two miles from school.
This means that some middle school students who qualified for busing last year may not qualify again this year because they have advanced to the seventh-grade and must live more than two miles away from the school to receive the services.
The space-available permits are granted on a first-come, first-served, space-available basis.
During the first few weeks of the school year, transportation services will not be provided to students who do not qualify for transportation services, even if they have submitted a space-available permit request. The District needs this time to verify the numbers of students who, according to state law, are guaranteed a spot on the bus.
Families will be notified about whether they have received a space-available bus permit by Sept. 10.
