Student October Count 

Annually, under Colorado State Statute (22-54-101, C.R.S.) enrollment data is gathered on Colorado students, including here in Boulder Valley School District, during a designated Student Count Date and a surrounding 11 day window.

Please Note: In BVSD, we typically avoid scheduling events on major religious holidays. The Student Count Day is outside of our district's control and can fall on religious holidays. As long as a student attends on other days within the count window, they will be counted by the State.
