Message from the Board President

I would like to begin by stating how honored I am to be serving as your Governing Board President for the 2018 year. I feel extremely blessed to be part of the PVUSD Board of Trustees. All of us strive to continue to produce excellence in education, while responding to the needs of the community. The needs of our students are always our top priority in our decision making, and we do our best to create a sense of transparency in our district and in our community.

Right now we are in the midst of creating some great things, and I look forward to continuing the momentum. We are working with the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE). They are helping to support and assist the District as we carry out our academic and school improvement goals. The change in California’s school funding system, known as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), gives districts control over how to spend state education dollars to best serve the needs of our students. We are trying to think better about how we are identifying programs and services that will really make a difference in growing our student improvement. Our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) acts as a roadmap explaining our programs and services, which the District uses to support our students. It is important to make sure all of our stakeholders have a voice and an opportunity to take part in the process.

I encourage parents to become an active participant in their child’s education. Students perform better academically when schools, families, and community engage to support achievement. Stay informed of the happenings, not only in your school, but also within the District. Working together will help make this an even better place for our children to learn and grow!
