New Elementary Schedule Proposed

The Canyons Board of Education is continuing to consider a proposed elementary school schedule that would give students consistent instructional time, Monday through Friday, to better prepare them for college and careers. Teachers also would be given time to collaborate each week, and receive seven half-days of professional development to help them provide better instruction for students under this proposed schedule.

The Board gave preliminary approval to the proposal at its Tuesday, March 27, 2012 meeting.

As a practical matter, school would let out 20 minutes earlier Monday through Thursday, and Fridays no longer would be early-out days under this proposal. However, school would let out early seven times in the 2012-2013 school year to give teachers professional development time they wouldn’t otherwise have due to budget cuts. These early-out days would be scheduled once in September, October, November, January, February, March and April.

The District has been working with groups to study potential issues with parent schedules, Title I schools, special education and other matters, and form recommendations for the Board. The Board of Education is continuing to weigh the matter.

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!
