  • Face Coverings Remain Mandatory In All Pleasant Valley School District School Buildings

    11/10/21 - 5 PM

    Today has seen swift legal actions regarding the PA Department of Health order requiring face coverings in all K-12 schools in the Commonwealth.  The ruling issued earlier by Commonwealth Court voiding the Department of Health order has been appealed to the Supreme Court.  That appeal legally triggers an automatic stay, meaning that the PA DOH order requiring face coverings in all K-12 schools remains in effect until the Supreme Court hears the appeal and issues its ruling.

    Therefore, per the stay and legal advice, Pleasant Valley School District will continue to follow the Department of Health order for mandatory face coverings in schools.  All students, staff and visitors to Pleasant Valley School District will be required to wear a face covering in school buildings and in accordance with information provided on our website under the COVID 19 tab.

    Thank you for your patience as these legal proceedings follow their course through the judicial system.

  • Comprehensive Planning at the Pleasant Valley School District

    Pleasant Valley School District's current Comprehensive Plan runs through the 2021-2022 school year.  The district's subsequent Comprehensive Plan is currently in development, to be submitted to the state by March 30, 2022. 

    What is Comprehensive Planning?

    The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) requires each school district in the Commonwealth to participate in Comprehensive Planning - a continuous process used to ensure that all students achieve at high levels in preparation for future life endeavors. 

    Chapter 4 of the PA School Code stipulates this planning requirement for every school district in Pennsylvania to be submitted on a three-year cycle.

    To this end, all Local Educational Agencies (LEA) work toward the creation of a highly effective learning environment ensuring the academic and personal success of all students. Continuous planning is essential to increased student performance and quality results. Innovative, student centered, and research-based programming, coupled with focused staff development, aligned resources, and public participation are critical factors for our district  to demonstrate continuous and meaningful growth.
