Welcome to the East Valley School District

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 the district continues to grow, over 3,000 students enter into our classrooms on a daily basis with bright eyes and an eagerness to learn. As new families continue to move into our community throughout the school year, we extend a warm welcome from the East Valley School District. You will find East Valley to be a warm and caring community that is committed to providing the best possible education and support for our children.

Significant past accomplishments give our district reason to celebrate and much to build on as we progress through the 2014-2015 school year. Additional funding received this past year from the State of Washington has allowed us to reduce class sizes, reinstate some positions and services eliminated over the past years.  We have placed a heavy focus on improving our school security systems, installing camera systems in our buses and begin catching up on delayed maintenance, technology and other items that directly benefit our students.

Many talented teachers and staff members guide our students’ learning with best practices every day in every classroom for every child. Because of those efforts, we are reaching new heights in student success. Each school continues their efforts to meet individual learning needs for all students through enriched programs and innovative strategies implemented over the past couple of years. I assure you that we will strive to see that East Valley Schools are recognized as “the best in the teaching and learning business.”

Thanks to the dedication of our excellent, caring staff, East Valley Schools provide a rich and safe environment where students grow and develop to their potential. Please contact me if you have any questions as we work together to make East Valley School District a great place for our children to learn. This truly is an exciting year for the East Valley School District and our community as we work together to achieve excellence while educating our children!

I wish you and your family a safe and successful school year.
