PK Altar Valley All-Stars

Congratulations to Robles Preschool team in receiving a Three Star Quality First rating. Quality First is a program of First Things First that regulates early childhood providers and helps them to make quality improvements that research has proven helps children to thrive. First Things First is a voter created, statewide organization that funds early childhood education and health programs to help kids be successful once they enter kindergarten. First Things First is what funds our preschool program.

This year the Robles PK Team raised their expectations of themselves and their students and truly achieved as Altar Valley All-Stars. Before school began, the teachers came in to set up their rooms, made sure they were ECERS compliant and had the rooms inspected by our Quality First Coach. Once our team felt comfortable with our room setup, they began focusing on the dimensions of the CLASS assessment and making our classroom instruction and students interactions as meaningful as possible. The teachers went through a rigorous training schedule sometimes meeting five days a week. The teachers worked together to observe each other, video themselves and have our coach evaluate the classrooms. This cycle of practice, assessment, discussion and planning created a close bond and a productive professional learning community. We have recently added additional training and space to accommodate our students with special needs. Please come and visit our All-Star Program! 

Destruction of Records

We may keep records beyond this period only when the law or regulation requires us to do so, or if there is pending litigation. This includes all inactive records dated prior to June 30, 2013. Before we destroy records parents and/or eligible students have the right to review and/or obtain copies of records. Any parents and/or eligible students who have an interest in these records should contact the Special Services Department at (520) 822.9201.
