This is my attempt to give you the most up to date information about what Duveneck's beginning plans looks like for reopening.

Please take the time to read over my presentation and if you have questions don't hesitate to contact me.

School Site Council

We need one additional parent to serve on our Duveneck School Site Council this year. Our Site Council is made up of four parents and four staff members. We work together to review data about student learning and social and emotional health. From this, we develop an annual plan for continuous improvement that’s presented to the PAUSD School Board each spring. We meet monthly, usually on Tuesday afternoons. If you are interested in serving, please contact me, Principal Crane at lcrane@pausd.org.

Duveneck Elementary School

At Duveneck, we work together as an inclusive community to inspire a passion for learning. We commit to the academic success of each student and to the emotional well-being of all our students, families and staff.
