District Newsletter


  • Gainesville R-V CSIP 2022 - 2025  


    The Gainesville R-V District Continuous School Improvement Plan (CSIP) was created using a collaborative team process. School board members, district staff, parents, and community members came together for an interactive process to create a strategic plan designed to guide the work of the district and the community for the coming years. A strong desire to propel our district forward emerged with our top priorities: student success, facilities and resources, parent/community involvement, quality staff, leadership and governance. Our school and community will keep our focus on the students as we strive to achieve the mission and vision of the Gainesville R-V District.
