Open Enrollment Window
Per Utah statute, the school-choice window opens Monday, Dec. 1. Schools will continue to accept Standard Open Enrollment Application Forms through Friday, Feb. 20, 2015. Students who want to attend a school other than the one assigned to them by geographic boundaries must submit these applications, which can be accessed on the website (http://www.canyonsdistrict.org/planning-and-enrollment-1), any Canyons school, or the Canyons Administration Building, 9150 S. 500 West. Applications should be submitted directly to the school where the child would like to attend. Once a school administrator approves an open-enrollment permit, the permit will renew automatically every year thereafter as long as the student remains at the same school and the permit is not revoked. Permits, which are granted on a first-come, first-served, space available basis, must be renewed when a student advances from elementary to middle school or from middle school to high school. Questions? Please call the Canyons District Office of Planning and Enrollment at 801-826-5092.

Each month our PTA sends home a paper copy of our school's newsletter to every family in students' backpacks. This newsletter shares a great deal of important information about what's going on in our school. Below is an online link for everyone to keep themselves informed. Enjoy!
Hello Edgemont Families,
I-CANyons Student Reports are coming home Thursday, November 20th. Based on feedback from parents and teachers, the I-CANyons Student Reports have been revised and updated for the 2014-15 school year.
The updated elementary I-CANyons Student Reports will give parents a progress report for Term 1 and Term 2. The biggest change parents will see on the Student Reports is the use of three indicators that illustrate each student's progress toward mastery. These indicators are as follows:
3= On Track at this Time - Student is on track to master this standard by the end of the school year.
2= Progressing - Student is making progress toward meeting the standard at this time; sometimes demonstrating skills needed to meet standards, at other times showing a lack of understanding or ability to apply the concept or skills.
1= Insufficient Progress - Student is showing risk of not mastering the standard by the end of the year and is receiving intervention support.
The indicators reported on this first I-CANyons Student Report should be consistent with the information located in the strengths and goals portions of each student’s SEP form that was shared at our recent parent teacher conferences.
Thank you for sending your children to Edgemont Elementary where our mission is to prepare all students to be college and career-ready!
