Staff Directory

Valley New School is a teacher powered school and has no separate administrator. Administrative duties and leadership are shared by the Advisors.

Curriculum and Assessment, Budget, Marketing/Recruitment, Discipline, Testing/Reporting, Charter Reporting/Grant Applications, Site Maintenance, and Special Events (e.g. Family Nights, dances/celebrations, graduation, school-wide projects) are some of the areas handled by the Advisors. Responsibility is apportioned according to expertise and interest, along with the occasional short straw.

VNS Advisors hold a weeklong retreat each summer to examine performance. plan for the year, and set future goals. The AASD Assistant Superintendent of Schools evaluates the VNS staff using the district-approved tools.
