Valley Center Intermediate School Core Values
Intermediate School was set-up to serve as a "transition" for students
between the elementary schools (K-4) and middle school (7-8). With that
in mind, our staff and students developed core values and building
expectations. Our core values are to "Be The Change, Making a
Difference Beyond You." These core values drive everything we do at
VCIS and we want to make sure we are educating students not only
academically but also socially and emotionally as they move forward into

Where can I find assignments from teachers if my child was absent from school?
If your child was absent, there are a few different things you can do.
Some teachers keep their assignments on the Class Pages side-tab on the
side of the website. You simply click on the teachers name and the
assignments are listed. However, many times assignments/plans change
and so the class pages may not always be the most up to date and best
method. With our students having Chromebook many teachers will be using Google Classroom to keep up on assignments. We also have a number of teachers who use other websites, such
as Edmodo and Facebook, to keep assignments up to date online.
Students also need to check with the teacher when they return to see what
assignments/lessons they have missed. Students will be given an
opportunity to make-up any work that was missed.
You could also go to Parent Portal to look for assignments. Many times
teachers put assignments into Parent Portal and you can access them
there. If you have any questions as to what your child has missed, your
students can always speak with their teachers or you can contact them
via phone or e-mail.
