The safety of our students is our highest priority and the Raptor visitor management system allows us to quickly identify those that may present a danger to our students. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your support in enhancing the school safety protocols in our district.
LEA Parent Survey
Please participate in the district’s annual LEA Parent Survey by Clicking Here. The survey will take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. Last year over 2,000 parents provided feedback on various aspects of the district, and we hope to have the same fantastic participation this year!
From communication to educational programming, we value your perceptions and insights, and like last year, we will use the information gleaned from the survey to target strengths and areas of growth from a building and district perspective.
As always, we appreciate your support and look forward to receiving your critical feedback. Please participate today!!

GV CTC Quick Tip # 36 Vaping Info for Parents
The results are back from the 2017 Pennsylvania Youth Survey for Garnet Valley’s 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders. We also have results from 2013 and 2015.
The results of this anonymous survey are self-reported and represent 83.9% of our students.
Did you know? To address the problem of teen vaping, our GVSD Board of Directors has created a policy that combines necessary discipline with help for students who have violated school district policy by vaping on school grounds. Child and Family Focus can provide Teen Intervene to any of our students with parent/guardian permission. This includes students who have violated the school policy and students who have not but would benefit from information. They can also provide presentations on Vaping for parent/guardians. The information presented is invaluable for families since the promotions and packaging of these products is deliberately incorrect and misleading.
Call to action…Join us on May 8th at 6 pm in the GVHS library for up to the minute information about Vaping.
