This week the Colorado Department of Education released the results of the Spring 2019 Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS). It shows that BVSD students participated in CMAS testing at a rate comparable to Spring 2018, at nearly the same rate as students in Colorado at the elementary level (96%), and approaching the Colorado rate at middle level (87%). Meanwhile, BVSD high school participation is strong with the PSAT (90% grade 9, 91% grade 10) and SAT (88%).
Teachers and administrators monitor student progress in a variety of ways, and look for the best approaches to support students who are struggling.
The BVSD Help Center, which aims to offer a warm welcome to our families every school year, opened its doors on Wednesday, August 7. Immediately, it was bustling with activity. This year, the Help Center, which is open to new and existing parents and guardians, stretches over a week and includes options on a Saturday and weeknights for working families.
In this day and age, it seems like companies and organizations launch new websites every other day. Well, you will have to pardon our excitement, because after a decade the Boulder Valley School District has a new website.
