We work throughout the school year to ensure that students have nutritious and tasty meals. It’s important to keep this going over the summer to give students the best chance to feel healthy, both physically and mentally. The School Food project covers the connection between mental health and nutrition, and shares community food resources.
Since voters generously approved the ballot measure last November, BVSD has been working to put pieces in place to get school renovation projects underway. Students and staff will start enjoying improvements provided by the Building for Student Success program as soon as August of this year with construction projects at seven schools. This month, design is starting for Phase 1 projects and will continue through the summer. Most of these projects will begin construction next spring/summer. An ongoing collaborative conversation is creating a new vision for career and technical education in BVSD.
The All Together for All Students Strategic Plan has been around since 2019. Although intended to be a 5-year plan, the pandemic sidetracked priorities for a couple of years. Nevertheless, the district has gained momentum and the amount of progress has been truly incredible.
Thanks to Colorado voters, school meals will be free for all BVSD students beginning in the 2023-24 school year. The passage of Proposition FF this past November, will provide free school meals through the Healthy School Meals for All Program. The BVSD School Food Project will continue to provide breakfast and lunch, complete with unlimited salad bar, every day at schools across the district.
We know – thanks to BVSD’s challenging, engaging and relevant instruction – as well as the guidance of our outstanding educators – many of our graduates have gone on to greatness in industry, politics, athletics… you name it.
For a little over two years, a unique half-day program has filled a previously unmet need in the Boulder Valley School District. Advanced Alternative Learning Program for Students, known as AALPS, has helped students who are experiencing a rough patch in high school earn and/or retrieve academic credit, while building and strengthening social, emotional, and life skills.
Making the move up to middle and high school can be a stressful and intimidating time for students and their families. BVSD has a resource in place called the 360 program, to help students navigate this new journey in their education. Not only does 360 help students through their new school transition, it also provides leadership opportunities for upperclassmen.
ASCENT, a program that offers a year of free college tuition at either Front Range Community College or Metro State University, has expanded to offer an unlimited number of awardees. In response, BVSD celebrated and identified almost 500 seniors who have qualified in one year’s time. Over 40 of those students were approved to participate in the program, an increase from just four students in the spring of 2022.
Congratulations to Boulder Valley School District’s graduating classes of 2023! This is an exciting time for our high school students as everyone wraps up the finals and the school year with many planned celebrations. We encourage you to make safe and smart choices during graduation season – so everyone gets home safely. The BVSD Health Services department offers some tips for students and parents.
The Boulder Valley School District shares excitement and pride with the Class of 2023 and its many accomplishments. As graduation season begins this week, we are pleased to share the names of students who have been selected or are finalists for outstanding academic honors in our district.
Five BVSD students have been awarded full-ride Boettcher scholarships to in-state universities, and four BVSD students have been awarded 2023 National Merit Scholarships.
