The mission of the Sandy Valley Local School District is to provide a quality education to all students through the cooperative efforts of the schools, parents and community. Each student, regardless of achievement or ability level, is to be prepared for success in his or her chosen endeavors.
The Sisters of Charity Foundation in Canton has approved Sandy Valley Elementary for $175,000 in funding to participate in the SPARK Ohio and Ready Schools project through December of 2015. SPARK (Sustaining Partnerships to Assure Ready Kids) is a highly effective, family-focused intervention program that works collaboratively with families, schools and the community to increase children's readiness for kindergarten, increase parents' effectiveness as learning advocates for their children, and improve children's transitions into elementary school. Thus far, the program has helped over 2,200 Ohio families prepare their preschool-age children for kindergarten.
