Information for Virtual Board Meetings

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-29-20, which temporarily suspends provisions of the Brown Act relating to public meetings. As such, Portola Valley School District Board members will be conducting their meetings using Google Meet. The link to the meetings and meeting agendas will be provided by clicking on the meeting date HERE.

To view current and past board agendas, click HERE

The PVSD uses BoardDocs which allows the District to maximize the effectiveness of its Board meetings, and public access to meeting Minutes, Agendas, and Policies in an effort to increase transparency and provide easier access to information. This Board Docs link will lead to immediate access of all Board related information.

Family & Staff Wellness Program

This year, PVSD is partnering with a program called Care Solace for mental health supports for our PV families and our PV staff. This partnership with Care Solace is being funded by the Sequoia Healthcare District and is part of our Wellness Grant. We want to continue to foster a culture that promotes the health, safety, and well-being of students, parents and staff.

Care Solace is an online resource with a live 24/7 concierge meant to assist individuals in finding local mental health related programs and counseling services. Care Solace is a tool for school staff and families to connect with community-based mental healthcare resources and providers. Their proprietary care navigation system taps into a vast database of mental healthcare resources to find carefully vetted local therapists and programs in minutes.

COVID-19 Testing for Students and Families

PVSD recommends, but does not require, testing for students attending in-person school and their families every two weeks. Third party testing resources are listed below as a courtesy. PVSD does not provide testing and we cannot guarantee access to testing or answer questions about services provided by third parties.

Curative provides free testing for San Mateo County children over 5 as well as adults.

Parents!  Become a Substitute and Help Us Support and Bring Back Our Students

The PVSD is reaching out to our students’ parents and families to apply to become substitute teachers to work in a supervisory capacity with groups of students for learning support.


Some students have unfortunately struggled with internet connectivity during distance learning, so the District has arranged for small student cohorts to safely return to schools in order to access their online classes. Each school needs 2-4 substitute teachers to supervise these students.
