Board of Education

Like all school districts in Colorado, Boulder Valley School District is governed by an elected Board of Education. The Boulder Valley Board of Education has seven members who each represent one of seven different districts throughout the geographical area of BVSD. Each member serves one four-year term per election up to a maximum of two terms or eight years total service.

We host “live” public participation during the 6:00pm regular meetings. You may choose to speak in person at the Board meeting, or you may choose the virtual option utilizing Google Meet. The Board allows a maximum of 60 minutes of public comment. Additional speakers may address the Board at the conclusion of the business agenda. All comments will become part of the permanent record.
