We are so excited to be chosen as A4LE’s 2019 MacConnell winner! Join Canyon View High School/DLR Group’s Planning Team either virtually or in person to hear an aspirational story.

It is multifaceted. It is ongoing. It is forward facing.

Our daylong event is organized around four major principles. Planning, cultural alignment, student engagement, and future casting.
