We welcome community members in our schools! Whether you would like to use a school building after hours, distribute information to our families or volunteer in our classrooms, Central Valley Schools are richer with community support and involvement.

Information Distribution in Schools
Central Valley School District receives many requests from local organizations to distribute flyers and other materials in our schools. We review requests from community-based, non-profit organizations on a weekly basis. If approved, the flyer will be placed on an information table in the lobby of our schools for parents, students and visitors to pick up. We do not send approved flyers home with students. Approved flyers intended for school staff are placed in the staff lounge. Review the procedures listed below or call 228-5425, for more information.
Community Use of School Facilities
When not needed for school activities, Central Valley School District facilities may be available for public use. Community members interested in using gymnasiums, multipurpose rooms or athletic fields should contact the school principal to reserve these facilities. Community members wishing to use gymnasiums or athletic fields at the district’s Early Learning Center (former University High School) should contact the district’s Director of Facilities and Operations at 228-5410.
Central Valley School District makes facilities available for community use according to priorities established by the Board of Directors. If extra custodial or utilities services are not required, the district usually does not charge “not-for-profit” community groups for use of district facilities. If the proposed use is by “for-profit” groups, the district establishes a fee schedule which is in line with rental of similar privately-owned space.
Central Valley Schools Committees
The district maintains several committees throughout the school year to collect the input of parents, teachers, administrators, staff and community members.
