Did you know Utah was one of the first states to enact laws to protect and provide hope to victims of sextortion? Parents, don’t miss this free seminar featuring Michelle Busch-Upwall from the Utah Attorney General’s Office. Busch-Upwall, a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce, will discuss ways for parents to safeguard their children from sexting and a form of blackmail known as sextortion while offering tips for what to do if you encounter it. The Jan. 15 event will be held at Indian Hills Middle, but is open to all Canyons District parents and high-school-age students. Families are advised to leave younger children at home due to the mature nature of the presentation. Certificated Canyons District employees who attend the event are eligible for one hour of credit toward re-licensure.
“I touch the future,” once said Christa McAuliffe, the American teacher and Space Shuttle Challenger crew member. “I teach.”
To honor the stellar teachers who encourage students to seek their dreams and reach for the stars, the Canyons Board of Education and Administration encourage members of the community to submit nominations for the 2020 Canyons Teacher of the Year Award.
