When students and teachers are engaged in work that is challenging, adventurous and meaningful, learning and achievement flourish. Our mission is to create classrooms where teachers can fulfill their highest aspirations, and students achieve more than they think possible, becoming active contributors to building a better world.
Dear Miwok Valley Families and Community, Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! Before I talk about the current year, I want to take this opportunity to reflect on two years at Miwok Valley and be thankful for all the help and support you have given our school, and have given to me personally. I appreciate everything you do as a group and as individuals that have contributed to making Miwok Valley a great place to learn. Miwok Valley made great progress during the past year in a number of areas; our EL Education focus, improving our facilities, improving our instruction, building community, and supporting students with special needs. It takes a large group with high capacity to make so much progress in so many areas- it also takes those few individuals who go above and beyond, working behind the scenes to make things great for everyone.
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a three-year plan for the upcoming school year and the two years that follow. An Annual Update is required for the LCAP, with a review of progress made for each stated goal in the current school year. The update assesses the effectiveness of actions and services provided, and describes the proposed strategic changes and priorities for the next three years of the plan. Each school site forms a team of Teachers, Classified Staff, and Parents to review the progress and goals. Please contact Brett Wilson, Principal of Miwok Valley Language Academy, if you would like more information on the LCAP process or are interested in participating.
Beginning Monday, August 21st, we will have a NEW Traffic Loop procedure for families. With this new procedure, we hope to speed up the process for families and students, increase safety for families, and reduce frustration during key times of the school day. Please do your best to cooperate with the new procedure and know that like anything new, it make take a few days for students, teachers, and families to get used to. We appreciate your support while we make improvements to our systems that help kids!
