It's Back... DVUSD FREE Full Day Kindergarten Next Year
Deer Valley Unified School District Governing Board members voted YES to bring back FREE full day kindergarten during the November 26 Governing Board meeting. Implementation is set for 2014-15. The district presented the Board with a proposal of options that would fund free full day kindergarten. More information will follow as the Board discusses and approves options and other future district initiatives.
DVUSD District Calendar Changes
Deer Valley Unified School District's graduation dates had to be changed from its original dates due to Peoria Unified School District adopting the same graduation dtes. That means hosting graduation ceremonies at the University of Phoenix Stadium would not be a possibility if the district maintained last year's graduation dates. The district presented two calendar options to the Board during the November 26 Board Meeting. After reviewing both options, the Board adopted a calendar with graduation dates for May 28-29 and a week-long fall break along with extra break days. The new approved district calendar can be found on the district website
