Dear West Valley Community, 

Last week, the School Board voted not to adjust the elementary attendance boundaries at this time. The Board, however, took action to direct the West Valley administration to assemble a community facilities committee tasked with examining all of our facilities and bringing forth recommendations to the Board, including revisions to our current boundaries that would be implemented beginning in the 2018-2019 school year.

 

Also, the Board resolved not to disband the self-contained highly capable classroom for 3rd and 4th grade presently housed at Wide Hollow. Instead, the Board charged administration with forming a task force to examine all highly capable programs district-wide for all students. This task force will report its findings and recommendations to the Board.

 

The Board is committed to continual improvement of our District for all its students. We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who provided testimony in our meetings and corresponded with the Board and individual Board members.

 

Our work, however, is just beginning. We need members of our community to step up and come alongside us on both issues. It is our desire that both committees have balanced representation of administration, staff, Board members, and community members.

 

Again, we need community members to be part of this process, and if you are interested in serving on either committee, please contact Dr. Mike Brophy, superintendent of West Valley School District.

 

Sincerely,

West Valley School District Board of Directors
