  • Sports ATHLETIC FEES FOR 2015-2016

    In 2015-2016 the Deer Valley Unified School District faced another year of reduced funding by the State Legislature. As a result, and in an effort to balance the district’s budget, the DVUSD Governing Board has approved an athletic fee for the 2015-2016 school year. The approved fee is in compliance with legislation passed in 1995, A.R.S. 15-342.24, enabling schools to assess reasonable fees for optional extra-curricular activities and programs. The purpose of the athletic fee is to provide revenue to maintain and operate athletic programs, which exceeds $2,000,000 per year, for 7th-8th grade and high school students. These fees collected will help defray the expenses of operating the DVUSD athletic programs.

    2015-2016 Approved Athletic Fees

    7th/8th grade athlete $60 per sport ($120 maximum per athlete)

    9th-12th grade athlete $100 per sport ($200 maximum per athlete)

    Family $300 maximum per family/household*

    * A family or family household is defined by the United States Census Bureau for statistical purposes as “a householder and one or more other people related to the householder by birth, marriage, or adoption.”


    • Payments and/or hardship waivers must be submitted starting week 2 of the season for each sport (Payment window for each season of sport below)
    • All payments including tax credit must be paid during the below listed time frame at the bookstore or the front office.
    • It is the parent’s responsibility to keep receipts when paying for multiple family members in regards to tracking a family maximum amount being met.
    • Student-Athletes will not be permitted to play in an AIA competition until the athletic fee and/or waiver is submitted.
    • Athletic fees are non-refundable
    • The 2015-2016 DVUSD Athletic Fees do not guarantee playing time in competition.
    • Hardship waivers forms are available in the school office or athletic office (HS only)

The Jaguar Pride received a rating of Superior with Distinction at NAU Band Day this past Saturday. We were the only band at this competition that earned this rating! A rating of Superior can be compared to an 'Exceeding' score on the AIMS test. A Superior with Distinction means that we 'Exceeded' in all six adjudicated areas (Music-2 judges, Visual, General Effect, Colorguard, and Percussion). Because of the band's recent success, we are the #2 ranked band in Division 1. Divisions are decided by total number of band members that perform. This is our first year in Division 1 and we are the smallest band in the division - 97 members. Our division includes bands that are 154 members (SDOHS) all he way to 190+ (Corona del Sol high school). The Jaguar Pride can hold their own!
Out of 130 Altos, we have first and second chair Alto in the All-State Jazz Choir.
First Chair, Daphne Seitz (senior) scored 99/100 points.
Second Chair, Alexis Morse (senior) scored 98/100 points. 
In the Jazz Clinic choir we had one student place:
Fifth Chair, Peyton Wayne (Junior).

Out of 142 Sopranos that tried out for the All-State Jazz Choir, we have the first chair soprano.
First Chair, Taylor Ellsworth (Junior) scored 290/300 points.
Tenth Chair, Jackie Juarez (Senior).
2nd Alternate, Peyton Wayne (Junior)
5th Alternate,  Julia Davis (Junior)
5th Chair, Daphne Sietz (Senior)
8th Chair, Sonia Tomaso (Junior)
11th Chair, Sam Kunselman (Sophmore)
12th Chair, Andrew Tortorella (Senior)
First Alternate Tenor, Ryan Gorman (Senior)
Fourth Alternate Bass, Tanner Johnson (Senior)

We had the second most amount of students in the show choir, and we had 2 kids make the All-State Jazz choir. There was not a school that had more than 2 in that choir. I am so glad we are able to represent Boulder Creek with these numbers. It is a reflection of the school and the talent it possesses.

  • Fake Form

    A joker has done a good job using our old logo to make this form look real. It's pretty funny too -- but this is NOT real. Please spread the word!

  • AzMERIT Update

    The Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards (AZCCRS) for reading and math set higher expectations for students. This means that expectations for student achievement are higher than they used to be with the previous AIMS state assessment. As state officials have recently reported, it is likely that fewer students will score at the higher achievement levels on the AzMERIT assessment, especially the first few years.
