In part two of the Magical Mystery (bus) Tour of the Mountain View Whisman School District (MVWSD), Dr. Maurice Ghysels, the Superintendent of the Mountain View Whisman School District, shares his thoughts about the district’s core values. It’s these core values of (1) academic excellence, (2) a strong collaborative community and (3) a broad world view that make the MVWSD so successful!
Note: I took this video a few months ago (fall 2008). The Mountain View Whisman School District was hosting a morning event designed to inform local Realtors about the benefits of the MVWSD and the Mountain View Educational Foundation (MVEF).
According to the MVEF web site, “the MVEF provides financial support for essential enrichment programs and educational materials district wide, for which not other funding source exists.” MVEF is a non profit charity run by parents and community volunteers in an effort to raise money for the Arts, Science, Physical Education and other programs that don’t receive funding. Their revised goal for 2008-2009 is $300,000 or approximately $360. per student. Please see their website for further information and/or to donate.
