Outdoor Air Quality

Student and staff health and safety is a top priority for the Boulder Valley School District. Poor outdoor air quality can create uncomfortable, and even dangerous conditions outside and even inside our schools for staff and students, particularly individuals with respiratory health conditions. 

Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment monitors outdoor air quality around the State, maintains an Air Quality Index (AQI) for local areas, and reports Air Quality Advisories.
