Throughout the pandemic, Canyons School District has worked to provide families with in-person and remote learning options so they can choose what works best for them given their educational needs and health considerations.
Consistent with that commitment, and knowing circumstances can change, schools will soon be inviting families to submit end-of-grading-period requests to switch learning options.
Those wanting to shift from in-person to one of two remote learning options available, or from remote learning to in-person instruction, will need to submit a change-request within the timeframe advertised by their school. No action is required of families who wish to stay with their chosen path.
The three learning options are the same as described at the beginning of the year: In-Person Instruction; Online Instruction; or Parent-Guided, District-Supported At Home Instruction. An explanation of those options can be found at canyonsdistrict.org.
Schools will share detailed instructions for submitting change requests. Below, for planning purposes, are the change-request windows for each school level.
The choices parents make during this window will guide the complicated process of shifting teaching assignments and allocating other staffing and classroom resources. For this reason, we cannot entertain late change requests.
The window for submitting change requests is Sunday, Nov. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 8. Learning option changes will take effect with the start of the trimester on Monday, Nov. 23.
The window for submitting change requests is Thursday, Oct, 1 through Monday, Oct. 12. Learning option changes will take effect with the start of the second quarter on Monday, Oct. 26.
High schools will work with families on a case-by-case basis to accommodate schedule-change requests based on availability. Families are encouraged to work with their child’s assigned counselor and make their requests well before the start of the new grading period, which is Oct. 26 for Alta, Corner Canyon, Diamond Ridge, Jordan and Hillcrest and Nov. 16 for Brighton High.
