Nancy Tingey, Amber Shill Chosen to Lead Canyons Board

Two Cottonwood Heights-area school board members were elected to leadership posts on the Canyons District Board of Education. The Board will now be led by Nancy Tingey who represents District 3, which includes neighborhoods that attend Canyon View Elementary, Butler Middle School and Brighton High. She is the first woman to serve as Board President. She is joined by Amber Shill who was chosen to fill one of two Vice President positions on the Board. Shill represents District 2, including neighborhoods that attend Brighton High, Butler Middle, and Bella Vista, Butler, Ridgecrest, Canyon View, and Oakdale elementary schools.

Application Time for Preschool, Supplemental Kindergarten

Next fall may seem blissfully far away, but now is the time to start considering schooling plans for your preschooler or kindergartener. The application window for spots in Canyons District’s tuition-based preschools for the 2019-2020 school year is now open. Canyons District sponsors programs at Bella Vista, Butler and Quail Hollow elementary schools. Soon, Canyons District also will be accepting applications for its Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program. The list of schools that plan to offer the program is being finalized. But it’s expected that parents will be able to start applying for the opt-in, tuition-based program starting Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 10 a.m. Space is limited, and applications for both programs will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis. Detailed information about how to apply can be found at canyonsdistrict.org.
