CVSP has a long history of providing professional development to teachers in the Central Valley.

This aspiration is built upon a set of core beliefs:
Geographically, CVSP serves a large four county area in the Central Valley of California. But, with changes in the CSMP enabling legislation over the past several years, CVSP has focused its resources in serving teachers in selected partner school districts in Fresno County, while still maintaining a strong and visible presence in the region and state. With extensive experience and a strong collaborative environment the CVSP leadership team is uniquely qualified to implement professional development content and leadership programs.
