Serious decisions regarding the electives and art programs in Canyons School District are being made right now. Middle Schools throughout the district including: Draper Park, Butler and Albion Middle Schools are having electives side-lined.
The issue has arisen because the State Board of Education will be adding two required classes to the sixth and eighth grade curriculum: a College & Career Readiness course (sixth grade), and a Digital Literacy course (eighth grade). Naturally this poses challenges to middle school administrators across the state, as they are faced with how to accommodate this requirement and still provide a balanced curriculum for their students. At these middle schools the administrations and school community councils (SCC) have voted to move forward with an adapted six period schedule.
