MVSD Ready for a Productive School Year

MVSD Ready for a Productive School Year

     Monday, August 26th was the start of the 2019-20 school year as MVSD's 12 schools and Children’s Center/Head Start State Preschool welcomed students back to school.  Aligned with the District’s mission to inspire each student to succeed every day, our schools are strongly committed to supporting the academic, social and emotional growth and achievement of all students.  

        “The start of a new school year is such an exciting time and brings a sense of renewal,” said District Superintendent, Lillian Maldonado French.  “Our students come first in Mountain View and our entire team is committed to making a positive difference in the life of each student we serve by providing curriculum, classrooms, programs and leadership that inspires lifelong learning and prepares them for the next level,” she added.

      New this school year is the addition of the Mandarin Dual Immersion Program at Twin Lakes School and the second of the District’s Spanish Dual Immersion Programs at Payne School.  Equipping students with 21st century skills and preparing them to be future leaders and positive contributors to their community is a high priority in MVSD.  The development of the whole child is supported through programs like STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math), Project Lead the Way,  the elementary counseling program, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), SEAL (Sobrato Early Academic Language), Dual Language/Biliteracy, PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports), in School 1:1 Technology, Wellness program and Visual and Performing Arts.   MVSD’s strong focus on Family Engagement will remain as programming and resources begin at the new Mt. View Family Center and the District’s nationally recognized Family Engagement Program provides workshops and activities for parents and families throughout the school year.  The districtwide college-bound culture will continue through a variety of programs all focused on inspiring future collegiate scholars.

      MVSD is coming off a very busy summer, providing free summer learning programs for over 3,000 students engaged in Think Together, Migrant Education, Special Education, Summer Preschool, the World Space Foundation’s EcoVoices/ViroSphere Science Academy, SEAL Summer Bridge Program, Summer Library Program, Rio Hondo Career and Technical Education Summer Academy and a fun four-day camping experience at Camp Mt. View in Wrightwood.  Additionally, Measure SS Summer Bond projects including extensive underground utilities modernization at Miramonte and Maxson Schools took place.  

       “As we begin the new school year, our team looks forward to continuing the journey of educating each of our students at the highest level and inspiring and supporting them to achieve academic success,” said Maldonado French.  “It’s going to be a great year.”
