Canyon ISD has created this webpage to share facts about Canyon ISD, and emerging issues and topics associated with the District.
We know questions arise from time to time, and we strive to provide accurate, timely information. As a reminder, Canyon ISD has many ways to stay connected. Please continue to visit the Canyon ISD website, follow us on social media channels, and look for email communication from us. We are happy to speak with you about questions, concerns, and input.
We Want You To Know
Books: Canyon ISD has a process for parents to let us know about any resources where they may have concerns. Click the following link to learn more about how we involve our community in selecting and reviewing resources that are used in our classrooms: Instructional Resources Consideration Committee Information website. Our Board of Trustees is working to adopt a new policy based on guidance from TEA this April that would allow us to review library materials in a similar manner to classroom resources. We will provide updates on this process through email and social media.
Critical Race Theory: CRT is not allowed to be taught in Texas schools per TEA. Canyon ISD does not teach CRT.
Health Curriculum: The State Board of Education adopted the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Health Education K-12. This content includes the opt in curriculum for human sexuality, child abuse, family violence, dating violence, and human trafficking instruction and our process for acquiring resources.

Transfers: The District allows parents to submit a form requesting for their child to attend a school within the District that is outside of their attendance zone. All transfer requests will go through the transfer process that has been established. Due to enrollment and staffing projections at campuses, it is highly unlikely a transfer request will be honored.

Suicide Prevention: Canyon ISD takes the safety of all students seriously. We want to equip students with skills and tools that can help prevent students from taking their own life. The School Health Advisory Council is currently reviewing suicide prevention programs to make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees by January of 2023.
Boundaries: We have no plans to change the 2020 board approved attendance zones. Follow this link to find attendance zones: www.canyonisd.net/welcomehome
