  • Grant for Project Lead the Way
     

    VVSD is excited to announce the receipt of a $5,000 grant from the Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains to assist with the expenses of Project Lead the Way (PLTW).  PLTW is a national non-profit corporation supporting K-12 study of STEM related fields.  VVHS has begun implementation of a series of pre-engineering courses from PLTW.  This grant will directly support that initiative and our students.  VVSD would like to sincerely thank the Community Foundation and its president Mr. Peter Quigg!

  • Book Donation Results
     

    VVSD is excited to announce that our month-long book donation during August at BAM in Dickson City was a huge success.  Nearly $5,000 worth of brand new books were donated to Valley View to be used to promote literacy and to help our students in need.  This was one of two fundraisers over the summer with BAM related to our newly established District-Wide Summer Reading Program.  The two fundraisers together raised almost $6,000.  VVSD would like to thank our generous students, parents, and community members who participated in these fundraisers!

  • AP Results
     

    VVSD has recently received its 2016 Advanced Placement Exam results.  We are excited to announce that 2016 was a milestone year at VV that saw record numbers of students earning a score of 3 or better, a record percentage of test takers scoring a 3 or better, and was the first time that VV students exceeded the percentage of test takers scoring a 3 or better globally.  These accomplishments are a credit to our AP teachers and our AP students and their parents.  Congratulations!  (Note: A score of 3 generally means that the student is qualified to receive college credit for the course.)

  • PSSA Results
     

    VVSD has recently received its results from the 2016 administration of the PSSA.  The 2016 PSSA is the second to be aligned to the new, more rigorous PA Core Standards.  Therefore, we are now able to make meaningful year-to-year comparisons.  We are proud to announce that in the vast majority of areas our students’ performance improved from the previous year.  In many cases, such as our Intermediate School’s Math performance, the improvements were significant. We would like to congratulate our teachers, students, and parents for their hard work that made this possible.  While we are excited about these improvements, we still have much work to do and have our sights set even higher!
