Monday kicked off the start of a new school year for most students in the Quaker Valley School District.

First-year high school students had a chance to acclimate to their new building alone. Sophomores, juniors and seniors headed back to the classroom Tuesday morning.

Nearly 2,000 students are enrolled at Quaker Valley, spokeswoman Tina Vojtko said.

The district's theme this school year is “Re-Imagine QV.”

With the theme, Quaker Valley will explore opportunities to re-imagine teaching and learning, the allocation of resources, organizational structures and its use of time.

“As the landscape of public education continues to change, our thinking about how we educate our students must evolve,” Superintendent Joseph Clapper said. “Quaker Valley's teachers, staff and administrators have a storied reputation for their willingness to think differently and to take measured risks on behalf of students. In order for Quaker Valley to not only maintain, but to improve quality educational opportunities for students and their families, we must be innovative and imaginative in seeking new solutions in our classrooms, schools and throughout our district.”
