The economic and social effects of COVID-19 continue to roil, even as a sense of normalcy returns after the pandemic. Yet through it all, thanks to the herculean efforts of Canyons District educators, support staff, parents, and community partners, CSD schools have remained unshakeable supports for students.
To recognize the heavy lift associated with maintaining a strong learning foundation in the midst of upheaval, Canyons District will present Apex Awards to those who were the outstanding stabilizing — and inspiring — forces of the 2021-2022 school year.
Key contributions to CSD’s excellence, innovation, and achievement throughout the academic year will be lauded with 2022 Apex Awards, the highest honors given by the Canyons Board of Education and Administration.
Canyons is now accepting nominations for the awards, which reward above-and-beyond efforts of employees and community supporters. Apex Awards have been presented in CSD each fall since 2010.
From the outset, the awards program was envisioned as a formal, by-invitation-only ceremony. The date, time and place of the 2022 awards ceremony will be announced at a later date.
The public is invited to submit nominations in the following categories:
- School Administrator of the Year
- District Administrator of the Year
- Business/Community Partner of the Year
- Volunteer of the Year
- Elected Official of the Year
- Student Support Services Professional of the Year
- Education Support Professional of the Year
- Legacy Award
The 2022 Apex Award nomination window will close on Friday, Aug. 5
The winner of the 2022 Apex Award for Teacher of the Year has already been announced. After a thorough four-month selection process that included reviews of instructional practices, student achievement data, and employee evaluations, Draper Elementary teacher Katie Tinoco was announced in April as the District’s choice as the top teacher for the school year.
