The Canyons Education Association issued the following statement Tuesday, May 4, at the public hearing for Canyons District's proposed $250 million, tax-rate-neutral bond. The statement was read by CEA President Tony Romanello:
"The Canyons Education Association Executive Board has voted unanimously to support the proposed $250 million Canyons School District bond. The Executive Board believes that this carefully crafted proposal, which does not raise taxes, recognizes the current economic conditions while moving forward to addressing pressing facility needs. We also believe that the bond is an excellent first step to enhancing educational opportunities for students in the district while improving working conditions for educators. It is the intent of the CEA Board to recommend that the Association’s Legislative Council ratify this statement of support at their next meeting on Tuesday, May 11, 2010."
