The issues discussed and the actions taken at Board meetings are important and affect the education of the students of the Allegheny Valley School District. The District’s motto, “Partnership for Excellence: Youth, School and Community” reflects the Board’s desire to involve the public in decisions that relate to the schools. Residents must take an active part in order for this partnership to be successful. It is both important and helpful for school directors and administrators to hear input from the public. The bottom line remains that the Board of School Directors are elected to serve the public and to see that the District meets the educational needs of its students. School personnel need community partnerships to make this happen.


The School District is a busy place; many different educational programs and events occur every day. The best way to keep up with these happenings is to become involved in the School District. Community members are urged to attend meetings to update themselves on happenings in the District.

The Allegheny Valley School District Board of School Directors and Administrators welcome you to join them each month.  A School Board meeting schedule is listed below. Agenda Planning Sessions will be held on the second Tuesday of the month; regular meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month, except where listed below.  All Standing Committee Meetings will begin one hour prior to each Planning and Voting meeting.  All meetings will be held in the Acmetonia Forum located at 300 Pearl Ave, Cheswick, PA  15024 unless moved to our alternate meeting location at Marshall Auditorium located at Springdale Jr-Sr High School, 501 Butler Rd., Springdale, PA  15144.  All meetings are open to the public.
