Small Group Expansion

Beginning the week of February 1st, Clayton 7th & 8th grade students will return to a full-day of school one day a week.  On the other days they are not in the school, students will continue to attend Zoom classes and participate in remote learning. Students working in classroom will work on same assignments as remote students during asynchronous time​.  Teachers and students will continue to use Canvas as the main Learning Management System.

  •  25% of students come each day according to alphabetical order of last name

  • Wednesday is still devoted to students in remote learning and small groups on Zoom as needed​

  • In-person once a week (*number of students based on 650 students, likely to be smaller)​​

    • Monday – Last Name: A-E – 167 students​​

    • Tuesday – Last Name: F-K – 152 students​​

    • Wednesday – Digital day, teachers work with remote students online/Zoom ​

    • Thursday – Last Name: L-Q – 159 students​​

    • Friday – Last Name: R-Z – 171 students​​

  • After 1-2 weeks of this model, we will evaluate successes and adjust as needed.

  • Students working in classroom on same assignments as remote students during asynchronous time​.

Social Distancing Guidelines​ will be followed:

  • Student seating chart allows for 6 ft distance​

  • Maximum capacity is determined by class size​

  • Seating charts are documented​

  • Students follow Clayton social distancing guidelines and parental support provided as needed.

Open Enrollment for 2021-22 School Year

Your best choice in education is the Salt Lake City School District. All of our schools are committed to the district’s vision of Excellence and Equity: every student, every classroom, every day. In keeping with this vision, our schools offer academically rigorous classes based on the Utah Core curriculum, hold high expectations for all students, respond to individual student needs, and provide a safe and healthy environment for student learning. 

Students interested in enrolling in a Salt Lake City School District school for the 2021-22 school year but who live outside the district or school boundaries may apply for an out-of-resident transfer during the Early Open Enrollment period, from December 1, 2020, until 4 p.m. on February 19, 2021.

Students who wish to attend a school outside their neighborhood boundaries and are currently enrolled in 6th grade must apply for transfer to the middle school of their choice and 8th grade students must make application for their high school of choice during the Open Enrollment window. 

Applications are available online and must be submitted on time. They will not be accepted after 4 p.m. on February 19, 2021.

Students may apply for enrollment in schools designated as “Open” to transfer. Selected schools and programs may be at capacity for the coming school year and not available as a choice for out-of-resident students. Additionally, some schools, including charter schools, may require a separate application or lottery process.
