= $63,227

Crescent Elementary School Community Council was pleased to be able to spend $63,227 of LAND Trust funds on Crescent Cubs for the 2019 – 20 school year. It was determined that funds should be spent on reading, math, and technology. To increase reading achievement, students were identified as performing below benchmark on Acadience testing. Students identified through our walking to read program receive daily intervention support from intervention assistants under the direction of the teacher and achievement coach. Most of the allocated School Land Trust funding, $58,289, was used to hire five assistants to provide reading interventions. K – 1st grade teachers prefer using iPads with their Cubs. iPads were purchased for skill-based instruction and literacy practice stations for $4, 938 . Crescent is 1:1 with iPads and Chromebooks across the school. The Crescent SCC sees our LAND Trust Plan resources as a crucial component of our student achievement. It also helps that Crescent teachers are simply the BEST!

*100% of classroom teachers will build strong student- teacher relationships by greeting students at the door and saying goodbye to them at the door daily, and by holding daily meaningful 20-minute Morning Meetings that include a greeting, sharing, activity, and Morning Message.

CSD Streamlines Notification Process for Students After Possible COVID-19 Exposure

Canyons District has streamlined the family-notification process when it has been determined through the contact-tracing process that a student may have been exposed at school by student or employee who has tested positive for COVID-19. 

To ensure that families receive the notification, parents of children who will need to quarantine will receive an automated phone call and an email. Parents also will receive a text message if they have signed up for that service in Skyward. The process was put into place in recent weeks and has proven effective in immediately notifying parents of this important information.  

The official information will come from the Canyons school nurses, who are at the forefront of the District’s COVID-19 response. Canyons District nurses work hand-in-hand with the Salt Lake County Health Department and other health authorities to confirm test results, conduct contact tracing, answer questions of parents, students and employees, and help track the District’s overall COVID-19 cases.
