The Parents of Color Council was formed in recognition of a need for BVSD to create a more equitable and inclusive environment for "marginalized" populations within our school district. While the questions are general and open-ended we focus them on the families who are under-represented so that we can better support and help facilitate opportunities, platforms, forums, and structures that provide safety, precise resources, and support as needed. The council meets on the first Thursday of the month. If you are interested in being a part of this council, email Amy Nelson at email@example.com or call 720-561-6030.
