In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, Canyons District is sponsoring a “Parenting in a Pandemic” support group with sessions running every Tuesday afternoon and evening throughout May.

All Rise! Apply Now to Serve on Canyons District’s Inaugural Peer Court

The time-honored right of a fair trial by a jury of one’s peers will take on new meaning with the creation of the Canyons District Peer Court.

A model of restorative justice embraced in communities across the country, peer courts function much like any court of law. Judges are authorized to mediate disputes and mete out justice to right criminal wrongs. Except with peer courts, students are trained to hear cases involving violations of school or district policy, and authorized to decide the fate of their peers.

The Canyons Peer Court will be the second youth, or teen, court in Utah sponsored by a school district. It will hear its first case with the start of the 2020-2021 school year.

Soon-to-be sophomores, juniors and seniors interested in volunteering to serve on the inaugural panel of judges are encouraged to apply by May 20, 2020.

Have Technology Questions? Our Tech-Support Experts Can Help

Technology is empowering Canyons District students to learn from home, but can pose challenges when they can’t log in to online learning platforms or their computing device malfunctions.

To help students and parents troubleshoot technology blips and breakdowns encountered while navigating the new world of distance learning, Canyons District has created a Technology Help Hotline at 801-826-5200. The hotline will be dedicated to supporting families and staffed Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Anyone needing to request help outside of those hours may do so through CSD’s online request form.

“The hope with the hotline is that it will give families an extra avenue for connecting with us during business hours,” says CSD’s Information Technology Director Scot McCombs. “The dismissal of schools and switch to online learning is new for students and can be stressful. We want them to know there’s help available to overcome any technological problems they encounter.”
