Start Smart information and registration.  

SRVUSD has scheduled a Start Smart class for the first week of school, Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at the DVHS PAC. Although the class starts at 7 p.m., it is recommended to arrive by 6:30 p.m. for check-in. 

Start Smart program includes:  

  • More classes in the spring and fewer in the Fall

  • Ed Services will take over managing the registration process

  • We will only release a new date for a class a few months in advance. We had problems with people signing up for multiple classes, thus taking and not using valuable slots.

  • We will provide a warning that people who no-show will not be eligible for the next available class
