Canyons District Seeking Substitutes for the Coming School Year

Canyons is committed to keeping students engaged in learning while also being mindful of the health and wellness issues presented by COVID-19. To aid in this effort — and to support teachers who may need to stay home because of health or personal reasons — a robust list of substitute teachers is needed for the school year.   

Licensed substitute teachers have the opportunity make up to $129 per day. This is a rewarding opportunity to make money and help some of Utah’s finest students excel in school, according to the substitutes who regularly step in to help teachers when they need a day away from the classroom for health or personal reasons.

Through contact tracing, school nurses and administrators will support local health officials in sleuthing out possible exposures in an effort to break chains of transmission before they take hold. The District also will follow state guidelines for determining when to place a classroom or school on quarantine.
