Interim Superintendent Raquel Rose presented background information on the planning process for the 2019-20 school year. Due to the
decline in enrollment
over time, the district is proportionally
re-aligning staffing with projected student enrollment for the 2019-20 school year. In 2013, MVSD had an enrollment peak of 3,260, and has seen a decline of approximately 300 students since that time.
Due to this decline, it is important that MVSD calibrates staffing ratios so that the district may continue to offer a high-quality, well-rounded education. Recognizing that class sizes have varied over the years, the district is being proactive in determining the staffing needs based on projected student enrollment and consistent class sizes. The planning process and alignment will be reviewed for all staff, including Certificated, Classified, and Administrators.
We value our talented, hard-working, and passionate staff members, and have been working through this process collaboratively and thoughtfully. We will continue to remain focused on our
mission and vision
while recognizing our
objectives of balanced learners, supported staff, communications, and sound finance and infrastructure as we plan for the upcoming school year.
During this planning process, we will continue to provide updates through district-wide communications and future board meetings.
