MVSD is proud to announce that its exemplary Parent Leadership Academy will be awarded the 2019 Golden Bell Award from the California School Boards Association (CSBA). 

The Golden Bell Awards promotes excellence in education and school board governance by recognizing outstanding programs and governance practices of school boards in school districts and county offices of education throughout California. 

Congratulations to our Family Engagement Department, our visionary Board of Education, and our amazing parents for their exceptional efforts and dedication to the program and our students.  


MVSD’s Parent Leadership Academy empowers parents to be leaders in their schools, district and community, aligning to the Board’s goal of engaging families in supporting student achievement. 

Partnering with California Association of Bilingual Educators (CABE) Project Inspire, parents participate in three 16-week awareness, mastery and expert level courses.  The Parent Leadership Academy is linked to student learning and connected to academic expectations, emphasizing how parents can become advocates for their children. 

Expert level parents now lead and teach the awareness level classes to other parents throughout the District as Trainers of Trainers, creating a multiplier effect.  Through the development of their knowledge, collaboration and leadership, parent leaders reach beyond their homes and schools, empowering other parents and significantly impacting their community as agents of change. 

Parents are now decision-makers at the school and district level.  The Parent Leadership Academy has transformed parent involvement to active family engagement, significantly impacting student achievement.
