Community Advisory Committees
At times, the District will ask for volunteers from the community to serve on an advisory committee. The committee is usually charged with providing information on a specific issue that has come to light and on which the School Board and/or Administration would like to have more input from the community. The committee can be as large or small as the District wishes, but the membership should reflect a cross-section of the community. These Advisory Committees are given specific instructions for a final product and are chaired by a member of the District or community-at-large. Requests from committee members usually are published in the District’s newsletter, the web site, and/or the local newspaper.
Senior Citizen Brunch
Each fall, the Allegheny Valley School District hosts a brunch for senior residents. All District seniors are welcome to attend free of cost but are asked to reserve a seat so that the appropriate number of meals can be on hand. Students from both Springdale Jr-Sr High School and Colfax Upper Elementary School play a major role in the event. They serve as greeters, food service helpers, and entertainers for the event. The brunch is advertised in the local newspaper, on the District’s web site, at the local Senior Citizens Center, on the message board, and by word of mouth throughout the District.
Veterans' Day Program
Each year, the Allegheny Valley School District holds a program to recognize, remember, and celebrate local veterans. The program is held in Springdale Jr-Sr High School's Marshall Auditorium and community members are welcome to attend. District students attend and participate in the event.
