Two-thirds of Canyons Schools Make AYP

About two-thirds of Canyons District schools made Adequate Yearly Progress in 2010 under No Child Left Behind.

Twenty-eight schools, or 65 percent of those in Canyons District, made AYP, as did Canyons District as a whole. Additionally, Canyons’ three Title I schools that had been targeted as in need of improvement made AYP for the second consecutive year. This achievement means that East Midvale, Midvale and Sandy elementaries no longer are in “School Improvement,” a designation for Title I schools that do not make AYP for two consecutive years under No Child Left Behind. Canyons schools’ performance on AYP follows a pattern similar to that reported by the state.

“We view all data about our schools, including AYP reports, to be invaluable in our efforts to provide the best education possible to all students in Canyons School District,” said Dr. Ginger Rhode, Canyons Deputy Superintendent and Chief Academic Officer. “This year’s AYP results will be closely examined, along with other testing information about our students, in our continued efforts to improve and support quality instruction.”


Accountability Report Summary

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!
