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 are Open Educational Resources

According to the Office of Educational Technology, open education resources (OER) allow districts to update learning materials when new developments occur, for example, when new scientific discoveries are made, new leaders are elected or new state standards must be supported. The ability to update resources quickly and easily maintains the quality and relevance of learning materials.
And, openly licensed educational resources to empower teachers as creative professionals by giving them the ability to adapt and customize learning materials without breaking copyright laws.
To realize the full advantages of openly licensed educational resources, students and teachers need high-speed internet connectivity. The modernization of E-Rate has provided millions of schools and communities access to next-generation broadband in their classrooms and libraries. This increased connectivity makes it possible for a growing number of districts to expand their use of openly licensed educational resources and take advantage of these flexible, dynamic resources. 

Implementing Openly Licensed Educational Resources

The transition to openly licensed educational resources is facilitated by Central Valley educators curating and creating high-quality openly licensed educational resources.  These materials afford students more personalized learning opportunities and give teachers greater freedom to design and implement learning experiences aligned to state learning standards. 


The Central Valley School District is committed to the transition of high-quality, openly licensed educational resources.  Central Valley is one of a handful of school classified as a #GoOpen Ambassador District
