November Principal Message

Posted in Principal's Message

Hello Edgemont Families,
November 7th is a big voting day for Canyons School District. 
A $283 million, tax-rate-neutral bond is on the ballot.
I cannot and will not tell you how to vote on this issue,
but I will encourage you to exercise your right to vote on November 7th!
Please consider these facts when voting:

·      2009- Canyons School District was established
·      2010- $650 millionin building needs identified, $250 million bond approved
·      2011-2017- 13 buildings rebuilt/upgraded with 2010 $250 million bond
·      2017- November 7th ballot seeking voter approval of a $283 million, tax-rate-neutral bond to continue momentum in building safe, modern facilities for our students
     o   The 2010 bond corrected approximately half of our facility needs
     o   The district fast-tracked construction and finished each project according to schedule, came in under budget, and facilitated this growth without increasing taxes!
     o   Action is still necessary to address remaining needs for many schools- Edgemont included.

You can visit the “Feeder School Flow Chart” at http://www.canyonsdistrict.org/images/Feeder_School_Flow_Chart_2017.pdf to help you determine the value new schools may add to our local community.

Please make it a priority to vote on Tuesday, November 7th!
