Dear Altar Valley Families,
As you enjoy summer vacation, I ask that you review the first draft of the district strategic plan. On May 9, twenty-four members of the community gathered for a day of rich dialogue and discussion on how to enhance future programs and services of the Altar Valley School District. That discussion was summarized and formulated into actionable goals that will drive our district for next year. I ask that you review those goals and share your thoughts and ideas with me. Please feel free to e-mail me directly.
