A Message from Our Principal
Canyon Students, Parents, and Friends,
Thank you for helping our teachers and staff during this wonderful, successful school year! We appreciate your contributions of time and talent, and we have benefitted from your positive impact.
We will continue to work hard to implement new changes to ensure we provide our students the best education possible.
I have an open door policy and welcome your visit.

Multi-Tier System of Support (MTSS)
School districts are seeing valuable outcomes in schools where a Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is being implemented with rigor and fidelity. MTSS is a school wide prevention system that integrates assessment and intervention to help students reach their potential academically and socially.
As we implement the practices aligned in this program at Canyon, we expect to see the following improvements:
- Gains in reading and math assessment scores
- A decrease in inappropriate referrals to special education
- A decrease in suspensions and expulsions
- Improved collaboration between general and special education
- Corresponding cost benefits
