Student Computers

The Paradise Valley School District loans a take home device to students in grades 7-12. There is no fee for the use of the device, but families may carry full liability for the device (chromebook) in the same way they do for other damaged or lost school property, such as textbooks. There is an optional protection plan which may be purchased annually and provides for reduced repair and replacement costs. Purchase the protection plan via the school bookstore. Students and parents must also sign a Device User Agreement.

Athletics Information

The Athletics office number is (602) 449-7023.

Students interested in participating in sports must complete a sports packet. Check the PVHS website for more information or see our Athletic Director, Brock Heykoop, or our Athletic Assistant, Karen Barnett, with any questions.

In order to participate in district organized athletics, each athlete and one of their parents or legal guardians must watch the PVSchools Informed Consent video either at a scheduled parent meeting or online.

This is only required once during your four years in high school. Please refer to the PVSchools Athletic Information Form for a parent/guardian signature after viewing. All athletes must complete this form prior to playing a sport. You can download the athletics form via the district website.
