Art Revival
Arts Revival is Boosted by New Funding Formula

​CVESD worked collaboratively with arts organizations in development of the District’s Visual and Performing Arts strategic plan. The strategic plan positioned CVESD well for significant changes in public education: California’s new funding formula for schools, and new state standards. The Board of Education was primed for a critical funding decision in 2014-15, when it announced its commitment to hire full-time VAPA instructors and provide arts instruction during the school day for all students. CVESD made an unprecedented $15 million investment in arts instruction, spread over three years. This also provided classroom teachers with release time for collaboration. The funding was embedded in the District’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Learn how our LCAP helps meet student needs by clicking the link that follows

Foster Students
Support is Critical for Foster Students, Our Neediest Students

​Imagine being a child removed from birth parents and/or separated from siblings. Imagine being that child, trying to keep up academically, socially, and emotionally while transitioning to a new school, and foster parents. Then, repeating the experience. Sometimes over and over. CVESD’s LCAP-funded social workers support our neediest students: foster youth. Social workers provide direct services to foster youth in individual, small group, or whole classroom settings.

Military Families
Welcome, Military Families!

​April is “Month of the Military Child” and the District invites students to participate in a T-shirt design contest. Families were sent a School Messenger email with information, to encourage student participation. All students are welcome to submit their designs. The contest is among activities to celebrate military families and their children, for the daily sacrifices they make, and the challenges they overcome. The District’s Military Family Advocate helps provide support to military-connected students, families, and schools. A Welcoming Practices partnership grant headed by the University of Southern California, and that involves five school districts, including CVESD, helped create more welcoming and effective transitions. The position of Military Family Advocate is funded through the grant.

Technology
LCAP Target: Ensure Every Student in Grades 3-6 Has Own Technology Device

​As part of the District’s LCAP-funded one-to-one technology initiative, more than $3.4 million was allocated to purchase and distribute Lenovo devices so that by 2017-18 all students in grades 3-6 will have their own device to integrate technology throughout the school day. In addition, $454,500 was allocated to hire additional Technology Equipment Technicians to support each District school with infrastructure, wireless, hardware, and software needs.
