The East Valley School District Board of Directors and I are delighted to welcome our students and community to the East Valley School District as we begin the 2017-2018 school year.  The district continues to grow with over 3,150 students entering our classrooms with high levels of enthusiasm, creativity, and an eagerness to learn. Thanks to the dedication of our exceptional and caring staff members, East Valley Schools provide a rich and safe environment where students are able to grow and develop to their fullest potential. This truly will be an exciting year for the East Valley School District and our community as we work together to achieve excellence while educating our children!
 
Significant accomplishments have given our district reason to celebrate and much to build on as we launch into a new school year. We are making great progress as our talent teachers and support staff members continue to implement best practices every day, in every classroom for every child. The enriched programs and innovative strategies implemented by our teachers over the past few years are leading to high levels of success for our children. Each of our schools will continue to guide our students’ learning as we reach new heights in student success. As your School Superintendent, I assure you that we will continue our thrust to see that the East Valley School District is recognized as the best in the teaching and learning business.

What Does 3 Really Mean?

During the spring of the 2016-2017 school year, our K-5 Standards Based Grading Team met regularly to review our current grading and reporting process. The goal of this work was to improve consistency of our grading practices across the district in every grade level K-5, at each building. In addition, we wanted to ensure we were accurately communicating student progress toward meeting grade level standards. In order to do this, our team adjusted the language you will see on K-5 report cards to better align with the standards, as well as the descriptors for student progress toward meeting the State standards.
