North Fayette Valley Community School District

Well the day has finally come.  North Fayette CSD and Valley CSD are now officially one entity.  Even though this is a significant date for those of us in the Central office (new policies, new accounts, new contracts and so on) the general public will not notice many differences.  The big ones are creating a 6-8 middle school at the Valley site, and converting Fayette to a 4th and 5th grade building.  Andrew Wind of the WCF Courier did a nice piece summarizing our reorganization. 

NFV has been around for five years, celebrated five graduating classes, a state championship, multiple all-state performers, a Blue Ribbon School and many other highlights.   Our focus now can be more directly on making NFV the best it can be.  We will pursue that through Mission and Vision statements and Core Values:

The NFV Mission is to;
Ignite Learning; Build Leaders; Achieve Excellence!
The NFV graduates will be;
Well rounded, engaged citizens impacting the future.

We, at NFV value…
  • A safe environment
  • Diverse interests and abilities of students
  • Citizenship through integrity, ethics, respect, responsibility and empathy
  • Pursuit of a student’s full potential
  • Partnerships with parents and community
  • A guaranteed and viable curriculum
  • Persistence and passion for learning
 Most of all though, we will continue to be here.  A 21st Century Education that prepares students as described above will require innovation and change.  Sustaining an educational system that can provide for students needs for years.  Our enrollment should allow us to remain relatively stable for generations to come and hopefully more!   NFV has adopted Standards Referenced Grading, embraced the PLC frameworks, established alternative education opportunities, and added technical expertise through PLTW and the One to One initiative.  There is more change to come as our economic future is not yet well defined.  We need to be progressively seeking ways to prepare students for jobs that have not yet been invented.
