Canyons District to Move to Blended Learning Model

The Canyons Board of Education on Tuesday approved a plan to transition to four days of classroom learning with Friday reserved for remote, or independent, learning.

The new schedule will take effect starting Monday, Oct. 5, 2020, which will give families time to adjust their schedules. It will apply to all students, including online learners.

From kindergarten through the 12th grade, students will attend school according to their regular schedules, Monday through Thursday with no early-out or late start. Friday will be a planning, collaboration and student-consultation day for teachers and a day of independent learning for students.

The move comes after several principals testified to the exhaustion, burnout, and mental duress teachers are experiencing as they struggle to teach revolving classrooms of students across multiple learning environments (in-person, online and students in quarantine).
