Thank you Mr. Mike Williams

We would like to say a special "Thank You" to Amador Valley's Principal, Mike Williams for joining us this week at our General Association Meeting. Mr. Williams reviewed the ACCESS period that Amador is piloting next year. The ACCESS period is designed to provide an opportunity for each student to be able to access needed support such as connecting with teachers and counselors. Attached is the approved bell schedule for the 2017-2018 school year.   Click here for an informational presentation about the ACCESS period and informational opportunities to discuss this change with Amador Valley Administration, click here.
