DVUSD Named America’s Best-in-State Employers 2019
Forbes Media and Statista Inc. recently announced that Deer Valley Unified School District has been named to the inaugural Forbes list of America’s Best-in-State Employers 2019!

The America’s Best-in-State Employers 2019 title serves to reinforce DVUSD’s reputation as a high-quality employer.

Forbes and Statista selected DVUSD and the other organizations based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 80,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 500 people in their U.S. operations. Employees were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employer to friends and family; participants were also prompted to evaluate on a state-by-state basis.

“We credit a great base of positive people that keep attracting more and more staff who believe in the values and opportunities that DVUSD holds,” said Superintendent Dr. Finch.

In fact, each year the District hires former students they call “Come Back Kids,” who return to teach and give back to the community where they grew up.

With the hard work and dedication of DVUSD’s Governing Board, employees, and students coupled with strong partnerships with parents, business, and community members, DVUSD is poised to continue to be an #Extraordinary place to work for many years to come.

Celebrating the #Extraordinary Achievements of Deer Valley students, teachers, and staff
This past school year was one that lived up the Deer Valley Unified School District’s motto of #Extraordinary. Students, teachers, and staff achieved hundreds of local, state, and national honors celebrating academic, fine arts, and athletic achievements, honors for extraordinary teaching, and recognitions for community involvement. DVUSD had nine students who scored in the top 1% percent in the nation on the ACT, 35 students with perfect AzMERIT scores, 17 Nationally Board-Certified Teachers, five Arizona state sports champions, 24 academic Arizona state champions… and much more!
