CSD Powers Up Tech-Delivered Learning Options with New Canyons Online

Canyons is powering up its personalized-learning options with the pending launch of Canyons Online, technology-driven educational initiative recently approved by the Canyons Board of Education.

Starting in fall 2021, Canyons Online will be the CSD program through which high-quality online classes will be provided to third- through 12th-grade students. Licensed teachers with advanced training in the best digital teaching and learning practices will lead classes in core subjects.
