Board Summary

The Board of Education unanimously adopted a resolution authorizing the issuance and sale of up to $80,005,000 in general obligation bonds to help fund Canyons’ current construction projects. That includes  he total rebuilds of Brighton and Hillcrest high schools, the renovation of Alta High, and the reconstruction of Midvalley Elementary. Some of the funds from this issuance also would pay for the architect costs for the upcoming rebuild of Union Middle, expected to begin in 2021. The resolution calls for a maximum payback term of  21 years at a 5 percent interest rate. The approved resolution is among the first steps in the process to obtain the funding. After the Winter Recess, two rating agencies will review the bond-sale proposal. At that point, according to the proposed timeline, the bonds would be released to the market in late January with an expected sale the first week of February. A closing could be scheduled for late February. The public gave approval to the District in November 2017 to issue bonds up to $283 million to pay for new and renovated schools throughout the District. 

Legislative Update

External Affairs Director Charlie Evans updated the Board of Education on education-related issues that are expected for the 2020 General Session of the Utah Legislature. Among the topics discussed included the legislature’s special-session focus on tax reform. The Board also noted the possible impacts to the Education Fund, the amount set aside to fund Utah’s public schools.  The Utah State Constitution guarantees public-education funding from the state’s income tax.

Update on Roundtable Items

The Board of Education reviewed action items that had been requested of the Administration in the summer Roundtable Discussion and proposed new items for review.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
