Due to our water use restrictions, Cherry Valley Elementary has taken an innovative approach to incorporate a school garden into our campus. Our school garden is completely mobile (built on a flatbed trailer) and can be moved to off-site locations during summer so students can continue to care for their crops in June and July! We also have an indoor aquaponic tower garden that kids use to grow herbs, fruits, and vegetables.

Parent Involvement

School Accountability Committee
The purpose of the SAC is to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement processes. The SAC makes recommendations concerning the school’s Performance, Improvement, Priority Improvement, or Turnaround plan, and meets at least quarterly to discuss implementation of the school’s plan and other progress pertinent to the school’s accreditation contract with the Board of Education. Final decision-making authority rests with the principal or other person or group receiving the recommendation from the SAC (e.g., The Superintendent, District Accountability Committee(“DAC”) or Board of Education). The SAC consists of the Principal, one Teacher, three Parents, one PTO Representative, and one Local Business Person. This year, the SAC meetings will be held quarterly.
