They are the people on the front lines. They teach, lead, volunteer, inspire.
From sunrise to sunset during the school year, a dedicated corps of top-notch teachers, first-rate administrators, careful bus drivers, and hard-working lunch and custodian staffs, technology experts and financial wizards, as well as scores of classroom volunteers, work together to run Canyons’ schools.
The day-to-day operations may appear to be seamless: Buses roll on schedule, bells ring to start classes, teachers engage with students, meals are served, counselors provide support, and custodial and maintenance crews make sure the buildings are cleaned and readied for the next day. But it wouldn’t happen without the good work and expertise of the people who make Canyons strong.
For their contributions, hard work and dedication to advancing the mission and vision of Canyons District, the Board of Education and Administration seek to recognize the best of the best with the highest awards given in CSD.
Canyons District is now taking nominations for the 2019 Apex Awards, the annual recognitions given by CSD leaders to teachers, administrators, district office personnel, volunteers and community partners.

An Apex Award is also given to CSD's Teacher of the Year. The Canyons District’s Teacher of the Year is selected in the spring and is CSD’s nominee in the state Teacher of the Year competition. This year's winner is Jessica Beus, a third-grade teacher at Midvale Elementary. She was selected from a field of 47 teachers from every CSD school in the District.
The winners of the 2019 Apex Awards are celebrated at a by-invitation-only banquet and awards ceremony. This year’s event will be Sept. 10, 2019 at Corner Canyon High, 12943 S. 700 East.
