Superintendent's Message

Platte Valley School Pursuing Excellence for All~

Welcome to the Platte Valley School District, Weld Re-7 web site and our great community. We hope you will find this site helpful and informative. Like most school districts, we are constantly updating our web site in order to provide current news and inform you of the many great things that are happening in our school district.

The website has connections to each of our three school websites. The Elementary, Middle School and High School all have information about their schools and more importantly their students. You will also find district information for parents and about the district and district services. There is a section on the school board that lists meetings,documents (policies), and agenda. We also have a section on financial transparency that has current budget, audit, expenditures and salary schedule information.

The Platte Valley School District has a vision of “Pursuing Excellence for All”. What does that mean? It means we work very hard with students and families so that every aspect of education in our community is pursuing excellence. We want excellence in learning for students, teachers, and classrooms. We want excellent technology and support services. We want an excellent school board and administration. We want excellent student athletes and other extra-curricular programs (music, clubs,and activities). Platte Valley Schools have great students, families and community support. I hope you get to know us through this website and even better by coming to the district and school activities.

We are committed to excellence for every student every day.  Many times, we think of the classroom teacher.  But, it can also be the bus driver, the food service employee,the custodian, the school secretary, the principal, the counselor, the playground supervisor, and the coach that is the person who makes a significant difference in the lives of children, that brings out their very best, that encourages them to be more than they ever thought they could be. 

That is our commitment to our students, to you as parents and community members, and to each other as education professionals. As we begin each day throughout the school year,we truly look forward to doing our very best to not only bring out the best in each student academically, but to be the people who truly make a difference in the lives of our community’s children.  Thank you for giving us that opportunity.

Pursuing Excellence for All,

E. Glenn McClain, Jr., Ed.D.
