B'S 283-1935 Charter academy promotes rigorous academics program Linda Satchwell Staff Writer Isatchwell@plumasnews.com The new Indian Valley Academy, which was begun in response to perceived de- ficiencies in the Greenville schools, started Monday, Aug. 23, with 35 sixth- through eighth-graders en- rolled. IVA's student handbook gives a glimpse of the kind of education proponents of this new school hope to achieve. School staff mem- bers admit in their hand- book that the academy is a work in progress. In the "Program Evalua- tion" section of the hand- book, staff explained that, in lieu of traditional parent- teacher conferences, they will send a questionnaire home every two weeks, ask- ing parents to "evaluate the staff and services you and your child or children are receiving from the school ... your evaluations are impor- tant in helping us improve the quality of the school."

Published FRB, IVR Sept. 8, 2010 sponsibility on the part of students -- respect for them- selves and for othei's; and, personal responsibility, as well as responsibility for their community and the larger world. "All students will be im- mersed in rigorous acade- mics and meaningful extra- curricular activities sup- ported by a close-knit com- munity of teacher/advisors who will enable them to achieve their leadership and academic potential and to become creative thinkers and compassionate human beings." IVA functions under the Plumas Charter School um- brella as a classroom-based program with an unusually long school day. Part of the plan is to have no homework. Instead, the school day runs from 7:45 a.m. - 4:15 p.m. Any student who hasn't completed his work at 4:15 is expected to stay until the work is done. Curriculum will focus on vocabulary, grammar and composition; an integrated readifig, literature, history and geography program; math; science; life skills; study skills; health and nu- trition; learning the basics of sports and physical activ- ity; career exposure (theme based); agriculture; and for- eign language (beginning spring semester). The academy has a strict uniform policy. Each grade has its own color shirt, with the student-designed acade- my logo on it. Pants are blue or khaki, and girls may wear skirts or shorts as long as they "extend to the top of the knee or lower." Student behavior is, again, guided by respect for the IVA community. Stu- dents are expected to "take ownership of the conflict mediation process with the mentorship of the IVA staff." Parents are expected to support school staff by ad- hering to these policies.
