planning image
The Comprehensive Planning process is under way at PV. Every three years, school districts are required to create a plan that helps "set the course" for the district over the next three years. A Steering Committee made up of stakeholders (employees, parents, students, Board members and community members) has been formed to lead this effort and is already working toward developing a mission, vision, and goals for our district.

We hope to provide helpful information throughout this process through website updates and emails. Part of this process will also involve us asking you for feedback about our district through surveys. Keep an eye out for future requests. In the meantime, we invite you to visit our Comprehensive Planning website resources for more information.
