Truth-in-Taxation Hearing

calculatorThe Canyons School District’s proposed budget for FY10 is approximately $200 million. It attempts to maintain academic programs and the salary schedule for educators and education support professionals.

The budget includes a proposed tax increase that would generate an additional $4.15 million in tax revenue. The impact on a $311,000 home would be an additional $46 annually, or a 3.8 percent increase over last year, on average.

Additional tax revenues are needed to fund the $3.8 million Canyons is required to give Jordan School District under a 2008 countywide capital equalization law.

Canyons School District has scheduled a Truth-in-Taxation hearing on Tuesday, Aug. 4, at 7 p.m. at Canyons District Offices, 9150 S. 500 West in Sandy.

The hearing is required for two reasons:

  1. As a new entity, the District’s tax rate is officially 0. The District under the law must set a tax rate. The proposed rate would constitute a tax increase.
  2. The Board of Education must adopt a formal budget for the 2009-2010 fiscal year.

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!
