Board OKs Contracts with Teachers, ESP, Administrators

The Board of Education on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 voted to approve tentative negotiated agreements for 2016-2017 with the Canyons Education Association, the Canyons Association of Education Support Professionals, and District Administrators. 

The Board voted unanimously for the tentative negotiated agreements during a Tuesday, May 10 meeting of the Canyons Board of Education.

The tentative agreement with the Canyons Education Association for the 2016-2017 school year will give certificated employees a .59 percent increase in cost of living, in addition to steps and lanes.  The contract will extend one paid day. Additionally, the District has adopted a longevity step for teachers with 25 or more local years of experience.  They will receive $1,500. Teachers who have between 20 and 24 local years of experience receive $1,000. The agreement also indicates that a $4,200 Educators Salary Adjustment is not to be withheld from educators who do not pass evaluations.  The employee association and District also agreed to share the cost of a 7 percent increase in health insurance premiums.

The tentative negotiated agreement with administrators for 2016-2017 includes fully funded incremental steps for eligible employees. The District also will cover a 1.25 percent increase to the base of the Administrative Salary Schedule. The District will fund a 1.25 percent one-time stipend for those administrators on the top step during the 2015-2016 fiscal year. Forty-one administrators qualify for this stipend.  The administrators agreed to share the 7 percent hike in health-insurance premiums.

For the Education Support Professionals, the District will pay for incremental steps for eligible employees. About 93 percent of contracted ESP will receive a step increase. Employees also will receive a 1 percent COLA increase to the base of the ESP salary schedule. Also, upon retirement from URS, the District will pay $100 per day for 25 percent of the employee’s accrued but unused sick leave. The ESP association agreed to share the 7 percent hike in health-insurance premiums.

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!
