Meet the Board of Education
The Canyons Board of Education is comprised of seven elected community leaders who are responsible for establishing education policy for the children who attend school in Utah’s newest school district. The Board of Education works to create and implement a vision for public education that is focused on student achievement, innovative practices, community engagement, customer service and fiscal accountability. To that end, the Board strives to support a school system that is responsive to patrons and ensures every student is prepared for college and careers when they graduate from high school.
What We Do
The Board of Education works with the Superintendent and Business Administrator to guarantee the judicious use of taxpayer funds while providing leadership that promotes increased student achievement at all grade levels. The Board approves administrative appointments, decides policies and procedures, meets regularly in open session to deliberate and decide the public’s business, conducts Town Hall constituency meetings to maintain relationships with patrons, and advocates for the continued support of public education.
Board Vision and Mission Statement
