SRVUSD Must Divert Students from Green Valley and Los Cerros Schools, and the Situation is Slated to Get Worse with Proposed Development

Original post made by Danville Parent, Danville, on Oct 9, 2011

Danville and Diablo residents should know that local students are being diverted away from their home schools of Green Valley Elementary and Los Cerros Middle schools. It doesn't matter if you are already attending the school -- these diversions are not restricted to "new" residents. For example, you might find an older sibling attending Green Valley, but your new kindergartner sent across town to a different school! Some of last year's fifth grade graduating class from Green Valley were diverted to cross-town middle schools because the Los Cerros 6th grade class was full. These children won't be with any of their neighborhood peers or friends during middle school. If your child is diverted, the TRAFFIX program won't be available to you, and you will have to transport your child across town through traffic twice daily to and from the diversion school, wherever that may be. (The district does not provide transportation for diversions.)

What -- 44 comments and over 1000 views weren't enough for this author?

Besides, ANYONE whose kids get diverted from Los Cerros to Charlotte Wood ought to thank their lucky stars.

I have a child at Los Cerros and we were told that it would be next to impossible to change any of the children's schedules once they were handed out the first day of school because every class was "full". Who are the Danville Town Council members working for, SummerHill Homes and Jed Magee, or the thousands of families that just want their kids to attend local schools that aren't over their capacity!
