Back in June 2011, the Board of Trustees adopted NVUSD 2015: 21st Century Learning Plan for a Student-Centered School District. This plan was successfully implemented throughout the district. Nearly 800 teachers were provided training aimed at infusing technology into learning for all NVUSD students. The plan garnered significant stakeholder support from teachers, principals, classified staff and investment from the Napa community through Napa Learns and the Napa Valley Education Foundation. NVUSD 2015, coupled with other district initiatives, promoted significant advances towards the district’s goals.

 

Although NVUSD is further along than many districts in the nation, much remains to be done to build on the foundation of the NVUSD 2015 Plan. The district is now poised to actualize 21st Century learning for all students in all schools and classrooms throughout the district. The NVUSD 2015 Plan has evolved into the NVUSD Vision 20/20 Plan to guide our work through 2020.
