The Governing Board of the Pleasant Valley School District has initiated the process of hiring the district’s next superintendent to ensure a smooth transition of leadership takes place prior to Dr. Ramsey's departure. Details of the search process will be provided to district stakeholders directly via email and on this web page.
The Pleasant Valley School District (PVSD) Governing Board is seeking staff and community input in its search for a new superintendent. This survey is designed to gather your perceptions about the state of the district along with the experiences and characteristics you believe are important for the incoming superintendent to possess. The survey is being conducted by outside search advisors who are assisting the Board in this important endeavor. All individual responses will remain anonymous.
This week’s update includes information about the COVID-19 transmission rate, vaccines for employees, and our “reentry plan." A lot has changed since we adopted our metrics in November. Since then, the CDC and the California Department of Public Health have clarified their recommendations. After consulting with various stakeholder groups, PVSD will be adjusting our internal metrics to align with those provided by the CDC. This will allow a safe path to reentry for our students in grades TK-8. As a reminder, our students in special day classes (SDC) will return to campus on Monday, March 1st. On March 15th, students in grades TK-8 will transition back to our modified traditional program. Students will resume the hybrid A/B cohort model that was in place in October.
The PVSD School Board approved our Safe Reopening and Recovery Plan for fall 2020 at the special board meeting held on July 30, 2020. The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. Over 100 stakeholders representing parents, teachers, staff, and leadership worked together in partnership to prepare this comprehensive plan in line with local, county, state, and federal guidance. This plan is a "living document" which will adapt to changing guidelines and laws as necessary in order to maintain compliance.
