Each May, as sunny days multiply and the end of the school year is just around the corner, sustaining students’ attention to schoolwork becomes more challenging.

A recent survey of ConVal parents and teachers reflects this annual phenomenon, but also shows that there is still a high level of student engagement with their remote learning activities – 80% of parents and teachers say that students are “engaged” to “highly engaged” with remote learning.

We want to thank all the ConVal teachers for all they are doing and making happen for our students and families during this unexpected challenge.

We have always respected our teachers’ dedication, knowledge, passion, and the connections they make with our children. But this year, there are no words that can begin to express how appreciative we are for all that our ConVal teachers are doing.

The Covid19 Pandemic has thrust the world into a place it hasn’t seen in the lifetimes of our current generations. To see the changes that we are all struggling with is to see a world-down to the family level – that is challenging all of us to re-evaluate where we have been and where we are going.

The impacts of COVID-19 on the finances of the ConVal School District are not clear.

The Administration and School Board are in the process of determining the impacts but, at this time, there are many unknowns. The effects of remote instruction can be increased expenses in some budget lines and potential cost savings in others.
