Production Based Incentive Program – PVUSD participation:
  • APS Renewable Energy Incentive Program will pay and estimated $44.5 million to PVUSD over the next 20 years (we’re estimating that our program will pay about $260 million dollars in incentives to public K-12 schools over the next 20 years.  About 18% of that amount will be for PVUSD alone). 
  • Systems are estimated to produce over 560,000 MWHs over the life of the APS agreements
  • Out of the approximately 70 school districts participating in our program, PVUSD, by far, has the largest number of projects and greatest amount of PV capacity being installed.
  • Out of ALL APS customers participating in our incentive program, only a few have as much PV capacity being installed within the APS service territory
PVUSD is among the top “solar” school districts in the country.

Free homework help for PV Schools students through FROST

posted Sep 25, 2013, 11:51 AM by Staff.stephanie surratt   [ updated Oct 6, 2013, 2:29 PM ]

The FROST program -- Free Resources for Online Student Tutoring – connects National Honor Society students with their K-12 peers to provide free after-school online tutoring. Students can take advantage of the system on a home computer, on vacation, or anywhere there’s an Internet connection.  

The FROST system uses Webex technology for online screen sharing and optional two-way audio-video. After making the connection, peer tutors can tap into tools such as drawing, text, shapes and colors on a virtual whiteboard to help their students understand new concepts.

Live homework help is available between 4 and 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.

By visiting pvschools.net/HomeworkHelp, students can learn how the system works and access the links to start a tutoring session. All sessions are monitored by certified PV Schools teachers.
