Academic Services is looking for community members and parents who would like to join the Instructional Materials Adoption Advisory Panel. The panel will work under the guidance of the Director of Academic Services to review instructional materials (print and digital), represent the needs and wants of their community members and/or parent group, and understand, endorse, and communicate district instructional vision.
As the educational system continues to adapt to the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, BVSD and other school districts nationwide are seeing changing trends in student attendance. To address these attendance challenges, BVSD has implemented a comprehensive attendance tracking system to help understand and hopefully resolve or minimize the drivers of absenteeism for our students.
BVSD’s open enrollment period for each school year starts in the fall of the prior school year. The open enrollment period for the 2024-25 school year runs from November 1, 2023 through January 9th, 2024.
BVSD has invested in fostering linguistic diversity through robust dual-language programs that empower students to master multiple languages in their existing learning environments. One example of the program's success is the Aguirre Garcia family of Lafayette, Colorado whose native language is Spanish.
After working hard all summer in preparation, the BVSD School Food Project is thrilled by the increased participation in both breakfast and lunch by students so far this school year. Overall, BVSD has seen a 42% increase in lunch participation across the district, and a 79% increase in breakfast participation. Some schools are serving over ten times as many breakfasts per day as last year.
Aligning with a trend for school districts across the nation, the Boulder Valley School District has been in declining enrollment since 2018 and anticipates a gradual decline in enrollment in future years. This drop follows a declining overall birth rate and a growing tendency for families to delay having children. In BVSD, the high cost of housing coupled with limited housing stock inhibits the ability of families with young children to live in our district. COVID-related enrollment loss accelerated the anticipated decline dramatically.
