Ready for ‘Big Kid’ School? Apply for CSD’s Supplemental Kindergarten Program

Ready for “big kid” school? Kindergarten is a critical year in a child’s education, and to make sure students get off to a strong start, we are expanding the number of hours some of our kindergartners spend in the classroom. Starting on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 10 a.m., Canyons District will begin accepting online applications for its Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Our school is among 20 throughout the District that is offering the program. Students must be 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2020 to participate in the opt-in, tuition-based program. Space is limited and applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Phase one of the application process will end on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 11:59 p.m., and by Feb. 12, families will be notified of whether their students have been admitted to a school of their choosing or placed on a waiting list. Canyons District will continue to accept applications after Feb. 5. Students who apply after that date will be added to a waiting list or invited to enroll at schools that still have openings. 

Students who are accepted into the program will receive nearly four additional hours of instruction every school day. The participating children begin and end school at the same time as the school’s first- through fifth-grade students. Cost for the program is $2,950 a year, and can be paid in monthly installments. A 10 percent discount is available for parents and guardians who pay the yearly tuition in full at one time.

Web Accessibility

Why it Matters

As a public agency and educational organization, Canyons School District is committed to making its websites accessible to all students, parents, patrons and employees.  This means making information available in multiple languages and following accessibility standards toward complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

What is Web Accessibility?

Web accessibility refers to the design and publishing practices we use to remove barriers that may prevent people who have disabilities from interacting with our webpages.  Our District and school sites are designed with accessibility in mind.  The blogs and headers, for example, were designed to be clean and clutter-free while providing a good contrast between the text and the background.  All our web properties work on mobile devices and multiple browsers.  They also are organized to meet the user’s needs, or to be easy to navigate and consistent in how they function.

But there are additional steps that web managers can take when publishing blog posts, adding hyperlinks and embedding images.
