    Deer Valley USD in Full Swing

    Posted by Kristina Clecak on Feb 13, 2017

    The Deer Valley Unified School District in Phoenix, AZ just completed their first semester with all schools implementing SchoolCity.  The previous year, eleven schools were selected as Phase I schools and were key in helping the district work through procedures and training.  Now that all schools are on board and have a full semester's worth of data, teachers and administrators are eager to expand their knowledge of the reporting features.  This spring, the various reports available will be highlighted through a monthly employee e-Newsletter to help faculty become more familiar with the SchoolCity reporting tools.
