In 2002 Browns Valley School District was fortunate to receive a Federal Renovation Grant of nearly 1 million dollars. We are enjoying our newly remodeled facility. Each year the district is committed to making marked improvements.
Along with yearly building updates, the district continually explores best practices for implementing technology. Smart Boards are in every classroom to foster the integration of technology into our curriculum. JMC, a student information system and Instant Alert are tools being used to enhance communications between home and school.
