Our Academic Expectations
LEARNING is West Valley Middle Level campus’s #1 PRIORITY! We think student’s most important reason for attending school is to acquire the attitudes, skills, and information necessary to become a contributing and positive member of society. For students to meet our learning expectations, they are responsible for the following:
- Keeping a positive attitude.
- Having prompt and regular attendance.
- Bringing assignments and materials to class daily.
- Turn in daily work and homework on time.
- Ask for assistance or further explanation when in doubt
- Follow the guidelines in the student handbook.
- Out-of-district students who fail any class at the end of any term may have their permission to attend West Valley School District revoked.
A FIRST INCIDENT requiring repair is covered with a $20 copay. In the event that the part in need of replacement is less than $20, you will only be charged that amount and it will be documented as your FIRST INCIDENT. In all other incidents following, the student will be charged the cost of the parts needed to repair or a $250 device replacement fee. Damage to loaner Chromebooks will result in a charge in the amount of the parts needed or a device replacement cost of $250. Mechanical failures, determined by IT Staff, are covered by WVSD.
Responsibility in the Event of Loss or Damage
- Report Chromebook loss or damage to library staff or designee within five days.
- If the loss is due to theft, burglary, robbery, or vandalism, notify local law enforcement and present the official police report to school administration in the main office to assist the district in providing a permanent replacement.
- If a device cannot be repaired, a replacement of the district’s choosing will be provided. If a replacement is provided, all damage incidents will be charged the amount of the parts needed to repair or a $250 device replacement cost.
