New Teacher Contract Brings New Elementary Schedule for 2014-2015

A newly ratified 2014-2015 teacher contract next fall will bring a new elementary school schedule designed to better help each individual child achieve academic success. 

Canyons Education Association members voted to approve the teacher contract on Tuesday, May 20, 2014; results were announced Wednesday, May 21, 2014. The Canyons Board of Education approved the contract tentative agreement, which also increases teacher compensation by $4.25 million, in a public meeting Tuesday, May 6, 2014.

The new elementary school schedule establishes consistent daily instructional time five days per week. It also redistributes time in the regular work day for teachers to plan individually and in teams. This allows teachers time to give special attention to each student’s achievement and adjust their lessons to ensure that all students succeed.

The new schedule also includes seven early-out Fridays to give teachers time for professional development. The early-out days are: Sept. 26; Oct. 24; Dec. 5; Jan. 30; Feb. 20; March 27; and April 24.

The 2014-2015 teacher contract includes the following:

  • Step and Lane increases for all licensed educators.
  • 0.25 percent cost of living adjustment (COLA) increase in the base salary schedule.
  • Two additional paid days, equivalent to a 1 percent COLA, for teacher work time. Contract days increased from 184 to 186 contract days for classroom teachers.
  • No health insurance premium increase unless loss ratio reaches 105 percent (to be determined by the Insurance Committee).
  • Educators with more than 180 sick leave days may elect to receive a payout for up to five days annually at the rate of $100 for each day. Educators must maintain the number of days required to receive the GASB payout if eligible.

The Board of Education and CEA appreciate the collaboration and work of both parties to reach an agreement on the contract, and look forward to its implementation.

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!
