The Canyons Board of Education approved the school calendar, which includes slight changes to accommodate grade reconfiguration in the upcoming school year, during which ninth grade will be moved to high school and a new middle school curriculum will be introduced.

One change includes placing middle schools on the same calendar as elementary schools to better meet the needs of middle school students, who are moving from a schedule of four quarters to three terms per year.

The Brighton High School trimester school year calendar remains similar to what it has been in the past

Fall recess will be Oct. 17-18, winter recess will be from Dec. 23 to Jan. 3 and spring recess will be April 14-18.
