2017-18 school year:
A look back
We’re lowering class sizes and hiring well-qualified teachers. More than 70 percent of our teaching staff has a master’s degree.
The programs help incoming kindergartners become acquainted with their new surroundings, meet future classmates and teachers and work on building the knowledge and skills they’ll need at school. Thanks to the Foundation for VPS and an anonymous donor, the programs will expand in the 2018–19 school year.
In 2017-18, VPS students and families benefited from cash and in-kind goods and services (non-district funds) provided by the external organizations with whom our Family-Community Resource Centers partner.
The class, started in fall 2017, is focused on building trades to meet the demand for skilled workers. The class is part of the Hudson’s Bay High School’s Architecture, Construction and Environmental Services program.
Thanks to a voter-approved bond measure, seven schools will be completely rebuilt, three new school buildings will be constructed and every school in the district will receive upgrades.
In an effort to improve attendance across the district, the prize patrol surprised classes with perfect attendance on the day of the visit.
