Superintendent's Blog

In this area of the website, I discuss a variety of timely issues and provide information that I hope will be helpful to BVSD staff, parents, students, and community members. To suggest topics, please email me at superintendent@bvsd.org

I look forward to hearing from you!

Bruce Messinger, Ph.D.
Superintendent of BVSD


​In early April, BVSD will host a series of community meetings to gather input about what stakeholders value most in their school buildings.

Over the last 20 months, BVSD Planning and Engineering staff and the Capital Improvement Planning Committee (CIPC) have worked to develop an inventory of facility improvement and expansion needs for the school district. This information will be used to update the Educational Facility Master Plan which will be presented to the board of education this spring and may become the basis for a future bond program. 

BVSD facilities continue to age. As we have lost ground in state funding, we also have lost ground in our ability to maintain our buildings. The master plan will identify how BVSD needs to invest in existing assets to maintain adequate learning environments and prepare learning spaces for the future.

As the district transitions into the final stages of creating the master plan, we want to hear from members of the community and gain an understanding of what stakeholders value most in terms of facility improvements. Some potential topics to be discussed include deferred maintenance, health and fitness facilities, security, energy efficiency, enrollment and educational program growth/development.

It is important that we hear from the many different perspectives in the school district. Please plan to attend and invite members of your school community, friends, family and neighbors. Anyone who works for or resides in the district is invited to this discussion.

Mark your calendars—meetings begin the first week after spring break!

Meetings will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on the following dates:

April 1 | Nederland Middle/Sr. High, 597 County Road 130, Nederland

April 2 | Monarch High School, 329 Campus Dr., Louisville

April 3 | Centaurus High School, 10300 S. Boulder Rd., Lafayette (Spanish interpreter)

April 7 | Broomfield High School, #1 Eagle Way, Broomfield

April 9 | Boulder High School, 1604 Arapahoe Rd., Boulder (Spanish interpreter)

April 10 | Fairview High School, 1515 Greenbriar Rd., Boulder

See website for more information about the district’s capital improvement planning effort.
