Palo Verde Unified School District Vision Statement

Palo Verde Unified School District will constantly seek to improve its culture of academic excellence. We expect every student to read, write and calculate competently. We expect every teacher to apply consistent standards, evaluate student performance accurately, and coach students with diligence and compassion. We expect every parent, student, and teacher to support the mutual quest for excellence. Educational progress can never happen without truth as its foundation, and it is to the wonderful truth of student potential and the challenging truth of student performance that we are unalterably committed.
