This fall, BVSD voters will cast ballots on a $350 million bond-funded school building investment program that will create flexible, industry-inspired learning environments at secondary schools to give students the skills and experience they need to confidently transition into today’s dynamic worlds of work or college.
Where students learn matters. In order for students to learn, they need environments that are safe, functional, and comfortable. Additionally, it takes consistent maintenance to ensure taxpayer-funded facilities are ready for students and staff and everything they accomplish on a daily basis.
September is Suicide Prevention Awareness month, and one way BVSD is helping to support our student’s emotional health is through Sources of Strength.

Monarch High students, staff and families have been living in challenging times. The school serves the most impacted families in the district (200+) affected by the devastating Marshall Fire in December, which came within feet of the school and burned hundreds of homes just across the street.

This morning the Boulder County Sheriff's Office provided a brief update regarding the ongoing investigation into threats made by an adult community member in Superior. They are clarifying that law enforcement acted on a tip from a credible source, but are still in the process of determining whether the threats made by the individual are credible. This is an important differentiation and we apologize for the misstatement.
The Boulder Valley School District has developed a new Strategic Plan. This ambitious, exciting and comprehensive effort will guide BVSD for the next five years and aims at bringing everyone together to meet the needs of all students.
All students benefit from challenging and relevant educational opportunities
