Sign the Petition to Fully Fund California Schools Posted 10/19/18

Full and Fair Funding
Despite boasting the fifth-largest economy in the world and the highest gross domestic product of any state, California sits near the bottom nationally in nearly every significant measure of school funding and school staffing.

The California School Boards Association (CSBA) has launched a new website advocating for the Full and Fair Funding students deserve and California public schools need to prepare graduates for college, career and civic life in the 21st century. To ensure that California remains the home of innovation and opportunity, CSBA is calling on the state Legislature to raise school funding to the national average by 2020 and to the average of the top 10 states by 2025. 

Visit the website and sign the Full and Fair Funding petition.

NVUSD will revisit 2019-2020 calendar Posted 10/17/18

Hello, NVUSD families,

Last week, we announced the student calendar for 2019-2020, which our Board approved earlier this month. It included two non-student days in October and March, to allow for professional development for our teachers and other staff, and a school year start date of Monday, Aug. 12, two days earlier than our traditional start date.

Following that announcement, we received feedback from some students, staff and parents, specifically regarding the impact the earlier start date would have on the agricultural community, especially those involved with the Napa Town & Country Fair.

We take that feedback seriously, and so will revisit the 2019-2020 calendar, using a process that is yet to be finalized, but will solicit interests and input from parents, administrators, teachers and support staff through a calendar committee that we will create. Please watch for additional information soon.

In the meantime, please know that we are aware of how the school calendar impacts our families’ lives, and appreciate your patience and collaboration as we work through the 2019-2020 calendar.

Regards,
Dr. Rosanna Mucetti
