Lucerne Valley Unified School District administrators and staff are gearing up for the 2018-19 school year.
Several special projects are currently underway.
Currently solar energy projects are being completed at the Lucerne Valley Elementary School and District office sites. The installation of solar panels will help reduce electricity costs while giving students and staff an opportunity to learn about clean energy. California schools are leading the way in on-site solar power. The installation projects will be completed and ready when school begins on Aug. 9.
Construction for a state-of-the-art Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) lab will take place the week of July 16. Teacher training for the STEM lab will take place during the week of July 23. The STEM lab will provide a hands-on opportunity for students to learn about science, nature and math while designing, creating and building things.
The Lucerne Valley program for AVID — Advance Via Individual Determination — will participate in “Summer Institute” on Aug. 1-3. The AVID Summer Institute is an annual professional learning event where contracted sites come to learn the latest in AVID methodologies and strategies to successfully implement AVID in their schools.
