“We're only as good as the promises we keep, and only together can we make good on the promise of public education: providing all children with the resources they need to grow into healthy, independent and contributing adults.”
— CSD Superintendent Dr. Jim Briscoe
August, 2017 marked an important milestone for Canyons School District: The grand opening of two new schools, Midvale Middle and Alta View. With completion of these rebuilds and the remodel underway of Indian Hills Middle, CSD will have fulfilled the $250 million bond approved by voters in 2010. We’ll have done it without raising taxes, while maintaining our AAA bond rating and in keeping with our promise to residents of the five communities who, in 2007, voted to create CSD and who continue to support us in building an achievement-oriented District of distinction.
It’s an accomplishment for which we should all be proud. Recognizing that strong communities are essential to building a bright future for our students, the Board of Education set out in 2010 to “turn dirt” in every corner of the District. Thanks to all of you, we were able to undertake an ambitious construction and renovation schedule that has had a positive impact for all Canyons District schools and students.
