Share your viewpoint on Proposed Facilities Concept

On behalf of the Central Valley School District Community Facilities Review Committee, I would like to appeal to the stakeholders of the Central Valley community. Our committee, comprised of parents and community members at large, is seeking feedback on the District’s Proposed Facilities Concept so that we can present your viewpoints to the School Board.

Central Valley is currently facing a myriad of challenges ranging from overcrowding in parts of the district to under-utilized and aged facilities in others. The district unveiled a Proposed Facilities Concept in November to address building needs ranging from immediate needs in fall of 2005 to longer range planning into the next 6 to 8 years. This concept can be found on the district Web site at, by reviewing the recently mailed “Focus” newsletter, or by visiting your local school.

The Review Committee is urging all Central Valley patrons to submit your written thoughts about the concept. Comment online at, use a printed comment card (available at all Central Valley Schools), or by e-mail to All comments will be reviewed by the committee and submitted to the CVSD Board.

The deadline for comments is Feb. 28, and we ask that you help us to give the school district a well-rounded voice from the community as a whole. Help us so Central Valley Schools will continue to be the best in the region!

Jerry Lane

Chairperson, Community Facilities Review Committee
