The multimedia presentation gave an overview of Covina-Valley Unified and highlighted the innovative programs and accomplishments that make the District a standout educational institution in the region.
“The State of the District was a wonderful chance to bring together the entire Covina-Valley Unified community to celebrate our successes and reflect on our ongoing mission of educational excellence,” Dr. Eminhizer said. “I want to thank our remarkable students, staff, and administrators whose hard work and dedication made our inaugural State of the District a resounding success.”
Covina-Valley Unified held two State of the District presentations throughout the day, offering sessions to elected officials, distinguished guests, District staff, families, and other community members.
