Human Resources

Canyons District is committed to recruiting and retaining the best and brightest teachers and education support professionals, and is willing to invest in them. Since its inception, the District has given employees some kind of compensation increase, including a $5,000 bump in the starting-teacher salary in 2017-2018. For the coming 2018-2019 school year, the Board of Education has approved a tentative 5.67 percent boost to teacher pay. This is in addition to a $500 one-time bonus for all licensed personnel, and a separate $500 bonus for veteran educators. The increases provide an opportunity for educators to make continuous positive impacts to their lifetime earnings — which is welcome news for CSD recruiters Jo Jolley and Sally Sansom who criss-cross the country to find top talent to fill CSD classrooms. Teacher recruitment season is serious business, and with a nationwide teacher shortage, the stakes are higher today than ever before, says Sansom. Even so, Canyons has managed to attract the nation's best; 38 percent of our teachers come from outside Utah. Some are drawn by the state’s natural beauty; how many metropolitan areas are within driving distance of eight ski resorts and five national parks? Others know that because this District was created less than a decade ago by a vote of the people, we enjoy uncommon levels of community support. Perhaps it’s our size — big enough to have outstanding resources and top talent, but small enough to have to rely on each other to do our best work. Or maybe it’s the fact that as the rest of the world chases the next big reform idea, we’ve been unflagging in our focus on preparing students for the rigors of college and careers. Take a moment to see what we have to offer you at this stage in your career, and learn why #CSDistheplacetobe. 

You can teach anywhere. Why choose Canyons School District?


1. Competitive Salaries

Since its inception, CSD has given employees some kind of compensation increase, a cost-of-living or step increase, or both — even during the Great Recession. Additionally, in 2017, the Board of Education approved boosting CSD's starting teacher salary by more than $5,000 to $40,500. The proposed salary schedule, which included a 9 percent average bump in pay for all teachers, will have a lifelong impact on the earnings and retirement of all CSD educators.

2. Natural Beauty

There are as few places as starkly beautiful as Utah with its pine forests, sweeping deserts, roaring rivers and frontier towns—and Canyons District is within driving distance of all of it:
