Board of Education’s Student Advisory Council Empaneled

A group of students has been empaneled to provide their perspectives on issues that come before the Board of Education.

Assistant Superintendent Dr. Robert Dowdle introduced the 10-member Student Advisory Council during the Board’s Sept. 15, 2015 Business Meeting. The Council is comprised of two students from each high school – at least one of whom is a student body officer and the other, a junior or senior – who were selected as part of an application process. Council representatives will attend the Board’s semi-monthly meetings, discuss issues facing the Board, and provide input to the Board from a student’s perspective.
Members of the Board’s 2015-2016 Student Advisory Council are:

Alta: Joseph Hawkins, Maggie Evans
Brighton: Tyler Hoerchel, Chris Newman
Corner Canyon: Paige Nelson, Austin Matsuura
Hillcrest: Mary Rudd, Taylor Pulmater
Jordan: David Carr, Kaylin Bingham

Dr. Dowdle said that the students will hold regular meetings, which will include presentations by District leaders, during the high schools’ lunch periods. He said he hopes to receive student input on policy matters at each of the meetings, and to bring the feedback to the Board for consideration.

Board President Sherril Taylor welcomed the students and the opportunities their service will bring.  

“We’re going to have a great, year,” he said, “and we’re glad to have you be a part of it.”  

The Board established the Student Advisory Council in 2013 following a proposal from Alta student Katrina Jones. The concept was developed by a task force of student leaders, principals, and CSD Assistant Superintendent Dr. Kathryn McCarrie.

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!
