Board of Education Announces One-Time Bonuses for Employees

The following statement was issued by the Canyons Board of Education on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013:  
“It’s no secret that the Board of Education believes that the very best employees in Utah public education are found in Canyons District. We’re grateful for the dedication that is shown across the District every day. From the teacher who spends extra time with a struggling student, to the bus driver who greets every child with a smile, to the custodian who takes great pride in the cleanliness of classrooms, Canyons District is made up of people who help us maintain a culture of excellence.
In addition to our heartfelt thanks, the members of the Board of Education would like to financially reward our employees for their outstanding work, especially over the past year. Indeed, we have asked a lot of our employees, and we’ve been heartened with what we’ve seen.  We’ve witnessed a collective willingness to accept the challenge, roll up your sleeves and go to work. In addition to the daily tasks that are required to operate our schools, Canyons employees successfully put into place a districtwide grade reconfiguration; implemented dozens of boundary changes; opened three new schools; finished additions at two high schools; put the finishing touches on a new standards-based elementary school report card; started using a new middle school schedule; and challenged teachers to start using a new standards-based curricula.   
To express our appreciation for successfully implementing these changes, the Board of Education is pleased to announce that we are giving every full-time employee a $1,000 one-time bonus. The bonuses for part-time and hourly employees will be adjusted according to the hours they are assigned to work. Employees can expect to see this bonus in their November paychecks.
We are able to provide this bonus because of our prudent fiscal policies, which is another sign that our employees are going above and beyond in their efforts to build a district of distinction. We’re inspired by the exemplary commitment of our employees. Because of your dedication, Canyons District is rapidly building a reputation as a forward-thinking district that lives up to its motto of ‘Preparing students, building the public.’ Thank you for all you do on behalf of the students who attend our schools. We wish you the best during this school year and beyond. Together, we can succeed in getting all of our students ready for college and careers.”

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!
