CENTRAL VALLEY SCHOOL DISTRICT IS CLOSED - ALL ACTIVITIES CANCELED
The Beaver County School Districts and the Career and Technology Center continue to work together as we receive guidance from our state and federal leaders. Today, Governor Wolf announced that all schools would remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year. Therefore, all Beaver County school facilities are closed, and events canceled through the end of the school year. While much uncertainty still exists, this announcement will allow families to plan for their needs in the coming months. All schools will continue to provide continuity of education and meals through the last regularly scheduled day of school. We understand that this is heartbreaking for the Class of 2020, but please be patient as we seek additional guidance from our state leaders regarding graduation and other special events. We appreciate your patience and support during this closure, and we will continue to provide updates as we move forward together.

What is the Central Valley 1:1 Program

The 1:1 iPad Program gives Central Valley students a unique opportunity to learn using the creativity and productivity tools they will need in college and the workforce. The use of an iPad augments the curriculum for these students by providing opportunities for different learning styles and teaching options. CV is gradually integrating digital textbooks into the entire K-12 curriculum. Students use iPads for organizational and study skills benefits, virtual labs, research and school projects. 

1:1 Program Goals

  1. Level the playing field for all students (socioeconomic, special education, minority).
  2. Increase student engagement.
  3. Foster 21st century learning.
  4. 21st-century skills facilitated through technology.
  5. Increase communication and collaboration between students, teachers, and parents.
  6. Increase opportunities for teaching and learning.
