August 23 -- Public Hearing for SVA's Charter Renewal and approval of our new school's Charter 

September 1 -- Back to School Night

September 9 -- Parents and Pastries

Your Attendance Matters!

Come out to support your school on Tuesday, August 23 @ 6:15PM. 

Support our charter renewal

Please come to the VUSD District Office (5000 W. Cypress) at 6:15 PM on Tuesday, August 23. Meet outside, in front of the double doors, we will pin on sycamore leaves and enter the board room as a group. We are on the agenda at 6:30 and will have a total 30 minutes to present on both of our charters. 

We need to fill the board room with supporters at this meeting. 
Your presence speaks volumes for our school, it puts a face on the families we serve in the eyes of the VUSD board, and reminds the publicly elected board that they serve charter school families, too. The way they serve us is by approving the charter of the school that suits your learner, ensuring that you have this option.  

You can read the full text of our charters on the SVA website.

Thank you for participating in this critical process for your school!

Substitute Teachers Needed

Sycamore Valley Academy has a experienced and dedicated teaching staff, but our substitute list is short.  

If you or someone you know has the desire to be a substitute teacher at our amazing school, has a bachelor's degree, has passed the CBEST, and is willing to get a substitute credential and fingerprint clearance we would love to expand our team.  

If you are interested please email Shauna Dolin at [email protected]org
