As we remain focused on keeping our customers, staff and community safe, SCV Water is pleased to announce our new live distance learning opportunities for students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade.
“Our school education program has always been very popular,” said Jenny McNerney, lead education specialist for SCV Water. “We’re really excited to bring them back in a new format so we can continue to teach students about the importance of water and good water use practices to have now and for the future.”
SCV Water has adapted its award-winning school education program into a live virtual format which features interactive student activities that present interesting and age-appropriate water treatment and conservation topics. All curriculum presented meets state framework criteria for each grade level.
Virtual Class Format
SCV Water’s Education Specialists will work live with classes from different grade levels via Zoom and Google Meets. Lessons focus on engaging students and include interactive worksheets, videos and discussions about various aspects of water.

Distance learning class signups will work the same way they worked for in-person classes. School teachers must visit yourSCVwater.com/school-education-programs to sign up their class for a virtual lesson.
The School Education Program boasts seven credentialed teachers and has won several awards over the years, including:
– a Communitas Award in 2010 for our High School Scholarship Program,
– a Golden Apple Award in 2009 from the SCV School Administration association recognizing our
water education program, and
– an award from the William S. Hart District for our Junior High Program.
All curriculum is developed so that each grade level lesson is independent and different from all
the others. Students can attend a field trip every year and learn something new because none of
the lesson topics repeat. Curriculum is consistently reviewed and updated to ensure it meets
