The Superintendent and staff will use the following Core Values in developing a budget to recommend to the Board of Trustees:

  • The District budget will provide members of the LVJUSD learning community with ongoing professional development to meet the evolving and varied needs of our students and staff.
  • The District will pursue partnerships, advocacy, grants and likely supplemental sources to maximize opportunities and resources for our students.
  • The District budget will account for economic and political projections, laws and mandates that affect our funding stream.
  • The District will consider the financial impact and total cost of operation including ongoing expenses of any purchase, program or initiative to ensure quality, support and sustainability.
