We have received excellent response to the Community Forum survey we provided for community input.

As a quick recap to the survey results:

There were 135 survey respondents with 92 noting they will be attending the Community Forum in person.

The survey topics in ranked order of selection by the community:

  • Masking and COVID 19 

The ConVal School Board and Administration are moving forward in the planning for the first ConVal Community Forum. We are excited about providing you this opportunity for a constructive, open, informative, and meaningful dialogue.

Each section explains a specific aspect of the forum and will give you a full understanding of what will be happening and how to participate.

The ConVal School Board, working with the ConVal Administration, is pleased to announce its first-ever Community Forum.

The ‘public comment’ periods at the beginning and end of the School Board meetings have been a source of frustration for some in the community. Board meetings are designed to conduct the business of the District and therefore there is limited time for meaningful dialogue between the public and the Board.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the ConVal School District has made operational changes and adopted policies to respond to this virus based on the best available science and advice of medical experts. It is important for us all to recognize that science is a developing process and that this was a new “novel” virus with which our public health system had no previous knowledge of methods of transmission,

2021-2022 School Board Goals

1. Strategic Plan
The Board will actively engage in the development of a Strategic Plan that is forward thinking, addresses the ConVal mission and vision, includes a defined pathway forward for consolidation / reorganization of the District schools for consideration by District voters, and a thorough identification of maintenance and capital needs for development of a bond proposal in March 2023.

2. Budget and Finance
The Board, in cooperation with the administration, will propose a budget that meets the needs of the District with sensitivity to the burden on taxpayers that we can present to the voters with full transparency and confidence.

3. Communication
The Board, working with the Superintendent, will increase Board communication including proactive communication with the community on Board matters, engagement of the community via forums that allow for a question and answer format, and will develop strong and supportive community connections and strong partnerships with community organizations, state and local agencies, service providers, and businesses.

4. Learning Recovery / Reopening
The Board will support the District’s learning recovery efforts to address the ongoing negative impact of the pandemic on the academic progress of our students.
