Continuation of 10% M & O Budget Override

The Altar Valley School District Governing Board is asking voters to continue the 10% Maintenance and Operations Override. This override was originally approved by voters in 2002 and reapproved in 2008, and 2014.

This is a renewal of the current override, if renewed there is no change to local property taxes. This is not a new tax. The estimated tax rate for the override will be $0.95 per $100 of assessed valuation.

Renewal of the override will help us maintain:

  • Free full-day kindergarten
  • Competitive teacher and staff salaries
  • Small class sizes
  • Free athletic programs

Get Involved with Site Council

The site council serves in an advisory capacity to the principal. The principal seeks formal and informal advice from the council on a variety of issues. Council membership consists of parents, teachers, para-educators, administrators, and community members. We invite all members of the Altar Valley School District community to join and attend site council meetings. For meeting times and locations, please call the school office.

Be Kind Campus

At Robles Elementary, we are also a Be Kind Campus. Ben's Bells Kindness Education Programs are based on the belief that everyone has the capacity to be kind, and that kindness can be cultivated through intentional practice. Kindness is a universal topic with opportunities for education, recognition, and celebration in a variety of venues, including schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities.

The mission of Ben's Bells is to inspire, educate, and motivate people to realize the impact of intentional kindness, and to empower individuals to act according to that awareness, thereby strengthening our relationships, our communities, and ourselves. We will be releasing more information about our Be Kind activities soon! At Robles Elementary, we are dedicated to creating a positive and safe learning environment for all students and we value your continued dedication and support. Together, we can make a difference!
