Buying a Home Soon?

For more information on our partnership with Homestreet Bank, click on the link on the sidebar to the right....

Considering buying a home? Attend an upcoming seminar and learn how to build a budget, prepare your credit, and get a comprehensive overview of the homebuying process from a noncommissioned Affinity loan officer and other real estate professionals before you start looking for a home. This class also offers a certificate of completion from the WA State Housing Finance Commission that can be used when applying for down-payment assistance.

Lunch will be provided!

To register for one of these classes you can call the Hometown Hotline at 509-209-2547, or go online

Professional Development Clock Hours
If you have taken professional development classes through CVSD, you must go into HRM+ and fill out the evaluation within 30 days of the completion of the class or course. Failure to do this will result in the loss of those clock hours with no chance to recover them.

Good idea to review those building files!  

It's a good practice to review your building file at least once a year to ensure that the information in it is accurate, up- to-date, and relevant to your current assignment.

For those of you who have been with the district for many years, your building file (defined as supervisory or working file in the CBA) has the potential of containing very old information that may not be particularly helpful to have around. For example, a complaint letter from one disgruntled parent 5 years ago is not likely to be reflective of your career accomplishments, so it would make sense to remove it.  

Our Mission:

The mission of the Central Valley Education Association is to contribute to excellence in education in the Central Valley School District through professional training and support of its members.
