A Message from our Superintendent

David Dumon

Dear Altar Valley Families,

As we plan for the 2015-16 school year, I want to again thank this community for your support of the override, Proposition 423. Voters approved the proposition in November. It is evident that you are committed to providing a quality education to the children that attend Altar Valley schools.   

When we asked voters for your support, we specified that, if approved, the funds from the override would be used to help maintain free athletic programs, provide free full-day kindergarten, maintain smaller class sizes, attract and retain the highest quality teaching staff, and maintain special programs. I am proud to say that we are doing just that.  

Athletics at the middle school will continue to be free and available for all eligible student athletes. Kindergarten will continue to be free and offered for a full day. The Altar Valley Governing Board recently approved a 3% raise for all returning teachers in addition to a $350 signing bonus. I believe financially rewarding staff is one way we demonstrate to teachers in Altar Valley that we understand they are a student’s most valuable resource.

The Altar Valley School District staff pledges to continue ensuring the families and children we serve have a rigorous and relevant educational experience, while also making thoughtful decisions that are in the best interest of the children.

For additional details, including new start and dismissal times, we invite you to read the entirety of Dr. Dumon's letter.

Sincerely,

Dr. David Dumon, Superintendent
