Canyons School District parents and guardians can now view their children's SAGE test results online.

Results are available via a families' private Skyward accounts, the same account used for annual online registration. The portal is a secure site that provides parents more immediate access to their child’s SAGE results once school lets out for the summer.

Five CSD schools — Midvale Middle School and Sandy, Copperview, East Midvale, and Midvale elementary schools — have opted to provide all parents with paper copies of SAGE test results. These will be mailed to parents on June 19, the same day they are posted to Skyward Family Access. Parents whose children do not attend the above schools but who would like a paper copy of results should contact their school’s office by June 4, 2017.

SAGE exams are administered in late spring to all Utah students in grades 3-10, and to high school seniors enrolled in chemistry and physics courses.

SAGE test results are expressed in terms of proficiency. Proficiency means that a student has a strong understanding of challenging content in math, science and English language arts, and that the student is on track to be prepared for college and careers.  The SAGE proficiency levels are expressed in four levels: Highly Proficient; Proficient; Approaching Proficient; and Below Proficient.

Your student’s performance also will be expressed in a scaled score, as assigned by the Utah State Office of Education. The scaled score will allow you to compare your student’s subject test results from year to year. It also will allow you to compare your student’s subject test results to school district and state averages.

On an individual level, it’s important to remember that SAGE results are among many student performance indicators, including class quizzes and tests, homework assignments, and projects.

Canyons District is pleased to announce new administrative appointments, which were approved by the Board of Education on Tuesday, June 13, 2017.  

Kenna Sorensen, currently the Principal of East Sandy Elementary, will become an administrator in the Instructional Supports Department. This position was created when Dr. Darren Draper, the Director of Education Technology, resigned to accept a position in the Alpine District.

With the move, Sorensen joins the Department of Instructional Supports’ administrative team of Director Dr. Amber-Roderick Landward and Administrator Jesse Henefer in guiding the District’s curriculum and education-technology initiatives

Dr. Angela Wilkinson, currently the Assistant Principal of East Midvale Elementary, has been selected as the new principal of East Sandy, replacing Sorensen.   

Danya Bodell, who is now an Achievement Coach at Brookwood Elementary, is the new Assistant Principal at East Midvale Elementary.
Due to unseasonably high temperatures, Jordan High School's Tuesday, June 6 commencement ceremony will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Maverik Center (3200 Decker Lake Dr., West Valley City, UT 84119).

Previously, the event was scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. at the Beetdigger's outdoor stadium. But evening temperatures are forecast to approach the nineties, and temperatures on the football field are even higher.

We recognize this is a departure from tradition, and we thank students for being so understanding. After all, we want families to comfortably and safely enjoy this can't-miss event.  
Two students at Midvale Middle are part of a group that has received the regional President’s Environmental Youth Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Trojans Abigail Slama-Catron and and Eric Snaufer, along with two others from the Beehive Science and Technology Academy, earned the prestigious award for their "Bionic Scarecrow" device, which was created with the aim of keeping birds away from nesting in the wetlands around the Salt Lake International Airport. 

Last Thursday, Acting Deputy Regional Administrator Suzanne Bohan visited the middle school to present the award to Midvale Middle's Slama-Catron and Snaufer and Timothy Holt and Allison Drennan, who previously attended Sunrise Elementary and now attend Beehive Academy. The group of sixth-graders also demonstrated the award-winning project and answered questions from other students about their research and methods.

Superintendent Dr. Jim Briscoe also attended the award presentation and congratulated the students on their ingenuity and dedication.

“These student winners are exemplary leaders, committed to strong environmental stewardship and problem solving,” EPA Acting Deputy Regional Administrator Suzanne Bohan said. “Environmental education cultivates our next generation of leaders by teaching them to apply creativity and innovation to the environmental challenges we face as a nation. I have no doubt that students like these will someday solve some of our most complex and important issues.”

The Environmental Youth Award recognizes outstanding environmental education and stewardship projects from sixth- through 12th-grade students. Students from all 50 states and U.S. territories submit life-changing innovative projects to the EPA for consideration.

The region includes Utah, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming. Abigail also produced a winning Canyons District Film Festival film on the project.

See the students' appearance on ABC4 "Good Morning Utah" during which they talked about the proejct.

Do athletes make better students? If these sporting students are any example, there may be something to studies suggesting the traits of perseverance and commitment exhibited by successful athletes also translate to high performance in the classroom and the workplace.

Eleven Canyons District athletes were presented Academic All-State Awards this spring for excelling in sports while maintaining high grade point averages (GPA). The awards are announced each sports season by the Utah High School Activities Association with this latest round going to athletes in track and field, soccer, baseball and golf.
