CSD To Start Accepting Applications for Augmented Kindergarten Program

 
CSD To Start Accepting Applications for Augmented Kindergarten Program
 
For the second year, Canyons District is embarking on a big idea for little kids. To provide extra academic options to the community, CSD will again offer Supplemental Hours of Instruction for Kindergarten-age students in the 2017-2018 school year. Students must be 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2017 to participate in the opt-in, tuition-based program. 
Students who are accepted into the classes will receive nearly four additional hours of instruction every school day. Enrollees begin and end school at the same time as the school’s first- through fifth-grade students.  Canyons District will begin accepting online applications at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 15. The application window will close at 11:59 p.m. on April 15. Computers will be available at Canyons schools for families who do not have computers or Internet connectivity at home.  
Students will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Cost for the program is $2,950 a year, and can be paid in monthly installments, August-May. A 10 percent discount is available for parents and guardians who pay the yearly tuition in full at one time. There also is a one-time, non-refundable registration fee of $100. Financial-need scholarships also are available for qualifying students.  Parents may apply for the financial assistance at the same time they submit enrollment applications.
  The District plans to offer the classes at Alta View, Altara, Bell View, Bella Vista, Brookwood, Butler, Crescent, Edgemont, Lone Peak, Midvalley, Oakdale, Park Lane, Ridgecrest, Sprucewood, Sunrise, Willow Canyon, Willow Springs elementary schools.  However, the program can only be offered at these sites if at least 20 students have enrolled in the program.   Children who qualify for transportation services will ride the kindergarten bus with morning-session kindergarten students and will ride home with the afternoon-session kindergarten students. 
 Efforts will be made to enroll students at school closest to their homes — but the District cannot guarantee placement at any specific school.  Placement notifications will be made by April 21 for the families who submit applications during the initial application window.  Questions?  Call 801-826-5045 or send an e-mail message to This email address is being protected from spambots.

What is School Community Council?

Posted in News & Announcements

 

The School Community Council learns about student achievement at school and helps provide input for how parents are viewing what we are doing to help children learn.  The council is also responsible  for how to provide children and parents with internet safety information.  Right now, we are planning a possible Parent Information night in February on Internet Safety and helping students make safe choices in general. This year Sprucewood received $34,701 in Land Trust money that is being used to pay for our Reading Intervention Assistants.
