Valley View ISD Family Engagement Plan
The Valley View Independent School District and the Parental Involvement Department believe that all parents, teachers, and community leaders are a valuable link in the educational success of all students. We promote the involvement of these key stakeholders by having them take part in the process that allows them to contribute to our school community providing input regarding the services offered in an effort to maximize the quality of education for Pre-Kinder students in VVISD. We have established a Family Engagement Plan to increase the collaboration between all stakeholders. The active participation of parents, teachers, business, and community leaders in all aspects of students’ education is a valuable tool that the Valley View I.S.D. welcomes and respects.
