Episode 15: What Canyons is Doing to Bridge the Digital Divide — and How you Can Help

Try imagining life without computers. Impossible, right? Technology has changed how we consume news and entertainment, make travel plans, stay in touch with our friends, shop, and even learn. Yet, a surprising number — 10 to 15 percent — of Canyons District students have no access to a computer or reliable Internet at home. In a pandemic, bridging this digital divide became an imperative. But it’s not a one-year problem. In this episode of Connect Canyons we talk with Canyons IT Director Scot McCombs and Canyons Education Foundation Officer Denise Haycock about steps schools are taking to more permanently bridge the divide, why it’s a moral imperative, and how families and businesses can help.

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!
