The Canyons Board of Education voted unanimously to approve high school boundary adjustments aimed at balancing enrollments at all Canyons District high schools, slowing future growth at Hillcrest and Corner Canyon High Schools while minimizing disruptions to students and families and maintaining as many academic programs at each high school as possible.
The Board’s action on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015 followed a yearlong study by a Facilities Committee, which was made up of parents and principals from all parts of Canyons District and assembled to give recommendations to the Board on short- and long-term school facility needs districtwide. The Board approved four of the five Facility Committee recommendations in its vote.
The new boundaries will take effect at the outset of the 2017-2018 school year and affect incoming freshmen. The timing is aimed at giving students, families and schools sufficient time to prepare. The new boundaries include the following:
–将一个地区向南移至Alta High边界，该地区位于11400 South以南，Lone Peak Parkway以西和12300 South以北。
Board of Education Second Vice President Nancy Tingey said the action is fiscally responsible and provides a viable avenue for future growth in the southern area of the District. Corner Canyon High, like many Utah high schools, currently has portable classrooms to accommodate students. The Board did not entertain changes to portables or the building as part of its discussion or vote.
