Assessments; 
VVUHSD conducts both formative and summative assessments each year, the results from which drive planning for instruction and remediation. Click here for more information.

State and Federal Accountability:
Local Control Accountability Plan- LCAP
The LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The LCAP provides an opportunity for local educational agencies (LEAs) to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet their local needs.

School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)
The SPSA is a document that represents a school's cycle of continuous improvement of student achievement. The annual process of developing, reviewing, and updating the SPSA includes a comprehensive review of data and the development of actions necessary to achieve school goals.

VVUHSD submits the LCAP and the sites submit their SPSA for Board approval each year. If you wish to attend and participate in upcoming LCAP planning meetings, please email jmontoya@bvuhsd.org and provide your contact information.

Professional Development:
VVUHSD offers ongoing professional development for teachers and support staff throughout the year. In addition to site and district based professional opportunities, the district shall support workshops and training related to subject content, instructional pedagogy, and school culture. Attached here is the PD calendar for 2020-21 school back. Keep checking this as updates are made regularly.
