Canyons District to Move to Blended Learning Model

The Canyons Board of Education on Tuesday approved a plan to transition to four days of classroom learning with Friday reserved for remote, or independent, learning.

The new schedule will take effect starting Monday, Oct. 5, 2020, which will give families time to adjust their schedules. It will apply to all students, including online learners.

From kindergarten through the 12th grade, students will attend school according to their regular schedules, Monday through Thursday with no early-out or late start. Friday will be a planning, collaboration and student-consultation day for teachers and a day of independent learning for students.

The move comes after several principals testified to the exhaustion, burnout, and mental duress teachers are experiencing as they struggle to teach revolving classrooms of students across multiple learning environments (in-person, online and students in quarantine). Up to 25 percent of students are quarantined in some schools, requiring teachers to spend 10 to 12 extra hours a week preparing audio and video lessons to accompany the written instructions they’re making available on CSD’s online common-learning management system, Canvas.

New CSD COVID-19 Response Guidelines Move CCHS to Online Learning for 14 Days

In a special meeting on Friday, Sept.18, the Board of Education approved a moving-forward roadmap for Canyons District to follow as school communities experience increases in positive COVID-19 cases.

As a result of the new plan, Corner Canyon High will pivot on Monday, Sept. 21 to an online-learning instruction model for 14 days. Parent and guardians on Friday night received a letter informing them of the temporary schedule change.

The pause in on-campus learning was determined to be in the best interest of students, families, and employees following a sustained increase in COVID-19 cases in the Draper community.

In-person instruction is expected to resume on Monday, Oct. 5. The Board and Administration will continue to monitor the situation and evaluate options in consultation with the Salt Lake County Health Department.

More information about online learning expectations will be forthcoming from the school and individual teachers. Lessons and assignments will be communicated using CSD’s learning management system, Canvas.

Utah High School Activities Association-sponsored activities can continue as planned as long as there have not been three or more positive cases within a two-week period on one sports team or performing group and required health precautions are taken.
