SANDY — Canyons School District is accepting applications from students who want to take the test for admittance to its SALTA magnet program.
The request for testing form for SALTA, which stands for Supporting Advanced Learners Toward Achievement, will be accessible on the Canyons District website until midnight Sept. 24.
This year, applications are being accepted from students in the kindergarten through fourth grades. Current third-grade students now in the program also will need to take the test. The parents of these students will need to fill out the online applications.
No late applications will be accepted.
Testing blocks are schedued for Oct. 5-6 and Oct. 12-13. Families will be able to choose which set of testing days they want when filling out the form.
Other than the students in the grade, those who are in the SALTA program will be grandfathered in for the 2013-14 school year.
The online testing request form is for students who are not enrolled in the SALTA program and wish to be tested for placement next year.
