Visalia Unified School District's After-hours Academic Assistance (AAA) provides after-hours academic support, through a virtual platform, for all VUSD students grades K-12 at no charge, four evenings a week. The hours are 5:30 - 9:30pm, depending on the grade level.
Every 10 years, a new U.S. Census is conducted, and the population counts are then used for redistricting. Trustee areas must be relatively equal in total population using the new Census counts. After new Census data are released, all jurisdictions must evaluate whether their current trustee areas (boundaries based on the last Census) have equal populations using the new counts. If not, trustee area boundaries need to be adjusted to re-balance trustee area populations.
The Board of Trustees of the Visalia Unified School District recently took action to open an application window for any individuals interested in filling the current board member vacancy for Trustee Area 4. The Board also established a meeting date to interview applicants for the Board seat and make the provisional appointment.
Mountain View's VISTA Dual Immersion program will help students learn academic content while acquiring a second language. Because of the teaching strategies that will be utilized, students will learn the concepts and skills needed at each grade level while developing the ability to read, write, speak, and listen in the target language. Students that participate in VISTA will become biliterate in both English and Spanish at the end of 6th grade.
