- The Board recognizes that from time-to-time out-of-district students may request to enroll as part-time students in Canyons District schools to attend classes and/or participate in Canyons School District sponsored extra and co-curricular activities. Because the Board’s primary responsibility is to provide educational services and opportunities for Canyons School District students, the Board limits opportunities for out-of-district students to enroll as part-time students and participate in Canyons District activities.
- The District Administration is therefore authorized to enroll out-of-district students as part-time students and allow out-of-district student participation in Canyons School District activities according to the provisions of the following administrative regulations.
Definitions - 500.33-1
The following definitions apply to this regulation:

Participation is coordinated by the students’ classroom teacher or school.
- “Extracurricular activities” means educational experiences that are not considered to be part of the students’ regular classroom instruction. These include Utah High School Activity Association sanctioned athletic, music, and speech arts activities, as well as school club activities. Extracurricular activities usually occur outside the regular school day and participation is optional and may involve student dues or fees.
- “Out-of-district Consortium student” means an out-of-district student who is enrolled in a Wasatch Front Consortium member school district (Jordan, Granite, Salt Lake, Murray, or Tooele).
- “Out-of-district student” means a public school student who is enrolled in another public school district or State Charter School Board authorized charter school where the student’s permanent record is maintained.
