School Safety Report
Introduction - Real Talk on School Safety
School safety has always been a topic of discussion — and action — in the Canyons School District. Some measures are obvious, such as security cameras, emergency preparedness drills that schools practice throughout the year and vestibules that require visitors to check-in at the Main Office before entering schools. But much of what we do is invisible. From the Internet filters we use to safeguard students from accessing inappropriate online content to the consistent rules and expectations we enforce to keep our classrooms free from bullying, harassment and discrimination, Canyons District is building safe schools from the inside out.
The Utah Legislature, through HB213, has asked School Community Councils to “engage” with school administrators in addressing school safety and digital citizenship. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the safety protocols encapsulated in this report and join us on this mission to Think Safe toward maintaining schools that are welcoming, secure, and prepared.
At the end of this report is a sample form to guide each school’s Community Council in providing feedback to Canyons District administrators.
