PV Schools

Dear Putnam Valley Community and Staff: 

As you know, a committee representing all constituents has been studying the possibility of a later start at the high school based on research on the physical, mental and academic needs of adolescents. As a result of the committee study, we have determined that we would focus on the possibility of a two-tier bus system that transports the middle and high school at the same time, allowing high school students to arrive at least 1/2 hour later in the morning. The thinking and discussion about this topic are available on our website. The presentation outlines arguments on all sides of the issue from perspectives of parents, students, teachers and administrators. Please review this information and click the link below to let us know your thoughts. You can also share your feedback using the comments icon in the PV App or by clicking the comments section on the district webpage just below the presentation.   

In addition, we have scheduled public forums on Thursday, December 8 and Thursday, December 15, both at 6:00 PM in the High School cafeteria.  All are welcome to attend.
