Repair and Replacement Cost Schedule
To reduce the potential burden to students and parents, and to simplify the assessment of costs for schools, the cost schedule is generalized into major, minor, and cosmetic charges. Costs are based on our current models. It is possible that lower-cost options are available through third parties in some cases, but we can not accept substitutes or alternative repair proposals. Loss is not covered by insurance.

Senior Painted Parking Spots 2022-2023
The Spring Valley Education Foundation, in conjunction with the administration of Spring Valley High School, is offering a unique opportunity for the Senior students. Seniors are invited to paint their own parking spot to increase school pride and camaraderie. Students are encouraged to express themselves through positive artwork, to beautify the campus, to build school spirit, to begin a Senior tradition. As a byproduct, we believe this fundraiser will increase campus security. Having student’s park in reserved spots can also help identify unwelcome visitors to campus if they park in student spots.
Purchasing a Reserved Senior Parking Space allows the purchasing Senior student to personalize his/her assigned space by painting it. Funds raised will be collected by the Spring Valley Education Foundation to support the educational needs of
Spring Valley High School. Reserving and painting parking spaces is a privilege rather than a right. This fundraising opportunity will benefit many students, as well as provide convenience not previously afforded. “RESERVED” or parking spaces will continue to be available for Senior students who do not wish to purchase and decorate a parking spot.
• Must be current with all fees and charges
• Must have completed Alive at 25 Program
• Must purchase a SVHS parking pass for 2022-2023 school year
