The Del Valle ISD Board of Trustees requested for the Superintendent to gather Covid-19 data specific to the Del Valle community. The Board will review and discuss the data at the March 22 board meeting.

Del Valle ISD will ensure all staff, resources and supplies are prepared for opening school, including but not limited to assigning sufficient staff to carry out re-opening, ensuring proper training and stocking inventory of necessary supplies, such as personal protective equipment (PPE).
