Multi-Track Year Round Schedule

Considering the Multi-Track-Year-Round Schedule

As the north side of Vacaville continues to grow, Vacaville Unified is exploring ways to keep campuses safe and inclusive for all students. Browns Valley Elementary is currently home to nearly 900 students, however, the school was built in 1991 for approximately 600 students. 


In order to best accomodate our current student population, VUSD is carefully considering returning Browns Valley to a Multi-Track-Year-Round schedule (MTYR). The MTYR schedule would likely include four tracks, reducing the student population on campus at any time by 1/4. This reduced number would better align with the maximum capacities of facilities like the library, multipurpose room and restrooms. The MTYR schedule would also offer Browns Valley families an even better learning environment by:

  • Reducing the number of students at recess
  • Providing more time for students to use library resources
  • Allowing students more time to eat in the multipurpose room
  • Less traffic during drop off and pick up times
  • A better opportunity for students to retain educational information with shorter seasonal breaks

If the Multi-Track-Year-Round schedule is adopted, the change would not take effect until the 2018-2019 school year. VUSD would attempt to coordinate with after school programs as well as align siblings attending Browns Valley with the same track schedules. 

Parent Survey To Evaluate Concerns

A paper survey soliciting input regarding a year-round school schedule will be sent home with every Browns Valley Elementary student in coming weeks. The survey below is intended to get an understanding of the extend of concerns about facility use, traffic and other areas.
