Welcome to the Sesser-Valier Community Unit School District #196 website.  We will work hard to make this site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community. 

The Sesser-Valier Community School District's mission is to provide a superior educational environment so that every child is educated and graduates with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to achieve significant career, educational, civic and personal goals which will generate confident, productive, and responsible citizens.



Thank you to State Bank of Whittington and Scott and Angie Kistner for sponsoring and supporting S-V High School's LIFE 101 Curriculum.
