Board of Education

Boulder Valley School District is governed by seven elected Board of Education members, who represent different geographical districts in BVSD.



Here in BVSD, we believe in school autonomy, which means that our school leaders -- those that are closest to our students and instruction -- are able to make decisions to best meet the needs for their community.


Our passionate and experienced department staff work to support the work of our schools, providing centralized services to help them with everything from professional development and instructional support to communication and maintenance.
