CSD Announces Dates, Times of SALTA Testing
 
Parents whose children exhibit significantly higher cognitive and academic ability are encouraged to have their kids tested for SALTA, Canyons District’s magnet program for advanced learners.

All K-7 students are eligible for testing and can sign up online starting on October 1, 2016. The testing window closes on October 31. 

This year students applying to participate in SALTA can test at their neighborhood school during two separate days. The “day one” test will take about two hours and the “day two” test will take about three hours. Test dates and times vary from school to school. Parents will be given the opportunity to select best dates and times for their schedule through the application process. 

Parents and guardians will receive notice of their child's test results in early January 2017. The letter will say whether or not the child meets enrollment criteria for SALTA for the 2017-18 school year. Parents who decline enrollment are encouraged to share the test results with their school principal and their teachers as the information will help guide their instruction.

No late applications will be accepted. 

Third-grade students who are currently enrolled in the program must be tested for continued eligibility.

Parents may want to consider testing their child for entry into SALTA if their child has an advanced vocabulary, asks many questions, has lots of ideas and is imaginative, or is a strong reader, among other things.

Canyons District has started accepting applications for its Dual Language Immersion Programs for the 2017-2018 school year.

From Monday, Oct. 3 to Wednesday, Nov. 23, parents and guardians can apply online to have their children learn Spanish, French or Mandarin Chinese.

In addition, parents and guardians who have questions about the programs are invited to a Parent Information Night on Monday, Nov. 28. The 6 p.m. event will be in the PDC of CAB-East, 9361 S. 300 East.  

Please note, that students with siblings currently enrolled in a Dual Language Immersion school must still submit applications by the Nov. 23 deadline. A lottery will be held to determine entrance into the programs if the number of applicants exceeds the 56 seats available per entering class. 

On the application, parents will be asked to list their top three preferred languages and schools. All programs, except for the one at Midvale Elementary, are for students entering first grade in 2017-18. The Midvale Spanish-English program is for students entering kindergarten in 2017-2018. 

Spanish also is offered at Alta View and Silver Mesa. French is taught at Butler Elementary and Oak Hollow. The schools offering Mandarin are Draper Elementary, Lone Peak, and Ridgecrest.
