The purpose of the school-community relations program is to establish and maintain communication that informs the parents/guardians and public and involves them in the educational goals and programs of the district's schools.

Chartiers Valley School District aims to share information including the countless accomplishments of our students and staff through various media including local news channels and papers, the District website, social media and e-newsletters. 

District Website

The District website, www.cvsd.net, is a great source of information regarding all aspects of the school.  

Chartiers Valley School District is pleased to have officially launched a bright and bold, responsive new website on June 21, 2019. Input gathered from parents, students, staff and analytics over the 2018-2019 school year year determined the need for a modern, mobile-friendly, easily navigable, and ADA compliant website design.

We have worked with a team of developers and designers to create a website which brings to life the CV story and serves the CV community.

While the site initially launched on June 21, it is important to note that the new site will continue to develop as content revisions and creations are made. A June launch date allows users and contributors to become familiar with the new site throughout the summer, and make revisions and adjustments prior to the hustle and bustle of back-to-school season.

Over the next year, you will notice additional pictures, graphics and information on the site as the project continues to evolve. As members of the CV community and users of the District website, you are invited and encouraged to participate in this project. When the new site goes live, please take some time to click around and submit any questions, concerns and compliments via the New Website Survey.

Monday Memo

Weekly e-newsletters are sent to parents of our students each Monday.  These memos include a message from the principal, important upcoming events and reminders, and photos of the good things happening in our schools. 

Parent email addresses are collected from Infinite Campus.  If you are not receiving Monday Memos and other District information, please contact your child's school office.  You may also click here to sign up to receive the Monday Memo and other District information. 

The Monday Memos are posted to the District website under each school's About section.

Flyer Distribution

The District cooperates with approved community organizations by posting digital flyers online and distributing them electronically through our service provider, Peachjar.  As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility, we have transitioned from paper to electronic flyer delivery.
