Sustainability Management System
This year, Boulder Valley School District is celebrating ten years of focused action on sustainability in the District through the Sustainability Managment System. This work builds on decades of environmental stewardship and continues to embrace and integrate environmental sustainability. The SMS is a comprehensive approach for identifying and coordinating existing efforts, establishing baselines, defining sustainability for BVSD, and creating plans to integrate sustainability into our operations and curriculum. The Sustainability Management System puts policy into action by setting five-year goals for performance in focused areas. The SMS is used as a roadmap for future years and is reviewed annually. The SMS also has an annual public reporting measure which leads to accountable actions and future goal setting.
In 2021, BVSD released a report detailing progress on goals since 2015 and launched the new SMS Action Plan with new 5-year goals and updated mission and vision.
