About the Strategic Plan

Winter 2019- Creation of Long Term Outcomes and Themes


District employees representing schools and departments gathered at the start of the year to brainstorm possible long term outcomes and strategic themes. The conversation focused on the district's data and what can be done to improve outcomes for students.

Families and Communities

Community Input Sessions

With draft long term outcomes and strategic themes in hand, BVSD held 7 community input sessions throughout January and February, including one for Spanish speakers, across the different regions of Boulder Valley. The feedback from both staff and community members helped shape the language and finalize the long term outcomes and themes.

Online Feedback

For families unable to attend in person, an online feedback form gathered input from over 150 participants.

Spring 2019- Strategic Objectives and Initiatives


With the long term outcomes and strategic themes finalized, Strategic Theme teams were formed, comprised of district staff, school leaders, and teachers. These teams were charged with creating objectives, which narrowed the focus of the themes, and strategic initiatives, significant projects to implement the objectives.

School leaders gave feedback on the draft strategic objectives and initiatives.

Families and Community

BVSD hosted a community wide equity summit in April 2019 attended by over 100 participants. At this summit participants were asked to evaluate the strategic plan framework through an equity lens and give suggestions on action items that would evolve from the initiatives.
