The Chartiers Valley High School and Middle School construction project will have a significant generational community impact. Thus, we believe public input and a transparent process are both essential to the success of this project.
Throughout the visioning, planning and design phase, the community was invited to attend monthly Community Summits to get an update on the project, ask questions and share their feedback.
In addition to the Community Summits, the district assembled two School Design Advisory Teams – one for the High School and one for the Middle School. These teams include Chartiers Valley teachers, administrators, staff, students, parents and community members. The School Design Advisory Team meetings had profound discourse on how we understand and define what learning means in our district as well as how we can create flexible learning spaces that meet the needs of our students today and tomorrow.
As construction continues, our attention is focused on what happens inside of our schools.
During the 2016-2017 school year, we met with groups comprised of students, parents, faculty and staff members, and community members focused on the learning and culture at our Middle School. We used the theme – “Change how you see. See how you change.” – as we engaged in conversation regarding the following topics.
• School Culture
• Curriculum and Instruction
• Parent Engagement, Community and Partnerships
Thank you to everybody who took the time to participate and share their feedback!
During the 2017-2018 school year, we will turn our attention to our high school learning culture. Please stay tuned for more information regarding how you can get involved!
