Sunshine Review: Canyons Earns A+ for Transparency

Canyons School District has received an A+ grade in the Sunshine Review’s 2013 Transparency Report Card. The Report Card, issued Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013, assigns grades to every state, as well as each state’s largest counties, cities and school districts, based on information made available on each entity’s Web site.

Of Utah’s 10 largest school districts included in the report card, Canyons is the only one to earn an A+ grade. Utah school districts received an average B grade. Nationally, just 20 percent of school districts received a grade of B or higher.

“Transparency empowers citizens,” Michael Barnhart, President of Sunshine Review, a national non-profit organization that advocates for transparency in government, said in a prepared statement. “Citizens are entitled to crucial information on how the public business is conducted and how public money is spent. Without this information, voters cannot hold government accountable. Without transparency, accountability is impossible.”

Grades were assigned based on Sunshine Review’s 10-point Transparency Checklist, which the group applied to more than 6,000 government Web sites. The checklist examines the online availability of budget, academic performance, taxes and other public information.

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!
