Every spring, on behalf of the Canyons Board of Education, the Canyons District Administration enters into negotiations with groups that represent the employees to review the terms of compensation and benefits for the following school year. In these negotiations, which have already started for the 2017-2018 school year, licensed teachers are represented by the Canyons Education Association,
and classified employees are represented by the Canyons Education Support Professionals Association. Once tentative agreements are reached for both the licensed and ESP employees, they are forwarded to the Canyons Board of Education for approval. Members of the associations also are asked to ratify the contacts with a vote. This year, even though contract negotiations have not been finalized, the District anticipates increasing the starting salary for a new teacher in Canyons to be at least $40,000 per contract year.
