Learn the Ropes: CSD’s School Community Council Training

Every public school in Utah has a School Community Counci formed of parents and employees. Council members are responsible for developing school improvement plans, guided by test scores and with funding from the School LAND Trust Plan.

SCC’s make decisions that matter. As individual members become familiar with their roles and responsibilities, as outlined by state legislation and Canyons District policy, they are empowered to significantly contribute to the improvement and success of their neighborhood school. The best way to make the most out of the experience–in addition to regular attendance at meetings– is through training.

Canyons District’s Community Engagement Coordinator Susan Edwards and Board of Education Vice President Nancy Tingey have developed a training program for SCC members that is being used a model throughout Utah. All trainings are held in the Professional Development Center at CSD’s east administration building, 9361 S. 300 East, Sandy. Here’s a list of dates:

  • Sept. 21: SCC101 at 5:30 p.m., and SCC Training at 6:30 p.m.
  • Sept. 28, SCC101 at 9 a.m., and SCC training at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m.
  • Oct. 6, SCC Training at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.

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!
