Your Bilingualism is Worth Celebrating • Apply for Utah’s Seal of Biliteracy

Each year in December, Canyons School District invites high school juniors and seniors to apply for the Seal of Biliteracy, a designation by the Utah State Office of Education signaling a student’s demonstrated proficiency in English and a world language. This year, the application window opens Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020 and closes Friday, Jan. 22, 2021, and CSD schools are making an extra effort to encourage students to apply.

“The Seal of Biliteracy, created in 2008, is something that colleges have really started paying attention to. More and more employers also are giving preference to hiring job applicants with this designation,” says Michèle Harward in CSD’s Instructional Supports Department. “We suspect, though, that there are bilingual, or even trilingual, students out there who aren’t taking advantage of this opportunity.”

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.
