To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.

The SVVSD Library Leadership team meets monthly and serves as an advisory body for the Media Services Department. Team members provide inreach and outreach between district libraries and central administration. The Leadership Team also works with Media Services to ensure the content and focus of district quarterly library staff meetings is relevant, timely, and responsive to identified needs.
Beginning in the 2020-21 school year, the team will include 6 members - two each at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. They will serve 2-year terms, staggered between the two members at each level.
The 2019-20 Library Leadership Team members are:
