Parent Resources

Here are some common links for parents.

Canvas is our Learning Management System.  Parents can sign up for a free account in order to view the resources and activities posted in their child’s courses that are available on Canvas.

Community Schools  are hubs of academic learning, healthy child development, and neighborhood cohesion.  Together, schools and various public and private partners provide comprehensive and coordinated academic, social, mental, physical, and vocational programs/services for students, families, and the community.

Canyons Community Schools are:

Enrollment Forms are available here in Arabic, Dari, Farsi, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swahili.

Canyon’s Extended Learning Program is designed to provide quality learning and youth development activities aimed to improve the academic and wellness outcomes of students.

Housed in Title I schools, the goal of the Family Learning Centers is to provide training and resources to parents to support learning in the home.  Classes are provided to help parents know how to help their students with reading and homework in all subjects, as well as how to navigate the school system and work with teachers.

Our adult education program offers classes for parents to earn a high school diploma, learn English, basic computer skills, “plazas communitarias”, parenting skills, and other content such as managing conflict, financial literacy, and nutrition.

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (Title X, Part C) supports students who may be experiencing homelessness as a result of economic hardship, foreclosure, severe medical bills, natural disaster, domestic violence or abuse.  The law requires students to be immediately enrolled and for all barriers to full participation in the educational program to be removed.

Schools provide safety, stability and hope for the future through education.  To support students’ regular attendance in school, funds may be used to provide assistance with clothing, transportation, health needs, and efforts to secure birth certificates, immunization and academic records, tutoring to earn or reclaim credit, free lunch, and fee waivers.  The Homeless Liaison works closely with other community agencies to support students.  Additional information, links, and forms can be accessed here.

Title III provides assistance to help non-native English speakers attain proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.

Title VI is a Native American/Alaskan Native Education Program designed to support the following goals:

  • Ensure academic success for indigenous students with an emphasis on high school, graduation, and post-secondary placement opportunities
  • Promote Native American culture and cultural awareness in all Canyons District schools, primarily to Native students and secondarily to all other students
  • Provide instruction in traditional Native American language to Native students

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!
