District Communications

Our District Communications aims to keep the community well-informed about school issues and programs, receive information and feedback from community stakeholders on important issues, and share and celebrate the successes of our students, staff, and schools. 

As an extension of the Superintendent’s office, we take seriously our responsibility to conduct school business in an environment of transparency and openness. Several communications tools help raise awareness and nurture strong relationships with parents, staff, students, the community, and media. 
We strive to provide timely, frequent, accurate and useful information through the following channels:
  • Subscribe to E-News for email notifications, school newsletters and important district news - select SVSD and specific school(s).  Parents/guardians of active students and staff will automatically be signed up to receive school and district communication via ParentSquare.
  • District E-Newsletters, called The Summit, are emailed weekly to all SVSD families and staff, and community members who subscribe. 
  • E-Calendar consolidates activities across the district; select one school or many.
  • E-Flyers/Peachjar is an online resource where community partners promote family-friendly activities and schools can invite the community to school events.
  • E-Meetings/webinars allow citizens to watch select public meetings online. (Check our district headlines for upcoming meetings & zoom links.) 
  • Podcasts (audio recordings) of regular School Board meetings are posted online.
  • Social Media: 
    SVSD Facebook
    SVSD Twitter
  • Videos & Slideshows help tell the stories of our students with compelling images.
