New Middle School Schedule Ready For Launch

The Canyons Board of Education on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012 unanimously approved a new framework for scholastic instruction and intervention in Canyons District middle schools.
The schedule, which has been endorsed by the Canyons Education Association, will be used at Indian Hills and Midvale middle schools in the coming school year. Lessons learned at those schools during the pilot phase will assist in the refinement of the schedule before it is implemented districtwide in fall 2013.

The new schedule carves out more time for core courses for sixth- through eighth-grades while also providing students flexibility to participate in a wide range of elective classes. This flexibility is made possible through an A- and B-day alternating schedule.
Under the new framework, the students’ days are made up of five 72-minute class periods with 40-minute “intervention and extension” sections within some of those classes. The aim with these sections is to give extra support to students who struggled to master the concepts from the previous day or, if the students have demonstrated proficiency, to provide additional, in-depth instruction.
Another major part of the new schedule is that, although some classes are taught every other day, students are required to attend English Language Arts and mathematics courses every day.
However, parents may note that the schedule is flexible enough to allow all middle school students the opportunity to take two full-year elective courses.  The reporting period for grading will be in 12-week intervals, which equates to roughly 60 days per reporting period.

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!
