Welcome to Pleasant Valley School District's Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment webpage. Our district focuses on valuing each child as a unique individual and provides them with a successful, safe and nurturing environment.


We focus on engaging students in higher learning and growing to their full potential. All students discover their untapped talents when an integrated, differentiated, and challenging curriculum is taught.


CIA Team 2015-16 The curriculum department implements research-based curriculum aligned to the California Content State Standards, coordinates instructional materials adoptions and resources, and provides research-based professional development for teachers and administrators to ensure that they receive the necessary support to effectively address the needs of our diverse student population.


Additionally, as we begin transitioning to the Common Core State Standards in English and Math, professional development becomes even more critical for teachers and administrators. Staff engages in professional learning community through ongoing collaboration; both as school teams and as grade level teams. Responses to intervention models are in place at all sites to provide intervention for students when needed.
