Option of Switching from the Year-Round Schedule to Traditional

Butterfield Canyon Elementary Resident Parents-

Due to the recent boundary changes and shifting enrollment, 847 students are currently attending Butterfield Canyon Elementary.  Even with anticipated growth Butterfield Canyon Elementary has the capacity to run a traditional calendar based on its building size and 10 portables. The Jordan School District Board of Education has asked us to survey the parents of Butterfield Canyon Elementary to see if they would like to be considered for a short-term traditional calendar that would last a minimum of 2 years (2015-16 and 2016-17 school years).

If a change occurs, a future evaluation will be conducted at the appropriate time to determine if a traditional calendar could continue beyond the 2016-17 school year.

For a copy of the approved 2015-16 traditional calendar and 2015-16 year-round calendar, please go to You can find the approved calendars on the website under the parent & student section.  It is important to know that a traditional calendar has students in school for 180 days versus a year-round calendar that is 170 days.  The year-round calendar school day is 25 minutes longer than a traditional calendar school day to equalize the hours of instruction.

The survey will be open on Monday December 22, 2014.  It will remain open until Monday January 12, 2015 at 1 pm.

The Board of Education is very interested in your feedback prior to considering a short-term calendar change and appreciates your time in filling out this survey.
