Welcome Message from Superintendent
Bruce K. Messinger, Ph.D.

Welcome to Boulder Valley School District!

As I begin my fifth year as superintendent, I am eager to implement the district’s new strategic plan, which we call The Success Effect. Many parents, students, staff and community members helped shape our future direction by their participation in developing the plan, which will lead to achieving our vision, mission, values and goals. My blog about Priority Action Plans features recent work by the action planning teams on The Success Effect. I encourage you to read about the future plan for  Boulder Valley School District.

The Success Effect is has three organizing principles -- Learning, Talent and Partnerships. Boulder Valley School District recruits and employs talented staff, and ongoing professional development ensures our staff has the best skills and knowledge to help our students be successful. A wide variety of professional learning opportunities are available for staff on such topics as innovation, education technology, gender diversity and instructional practices.

We also want to provide the best possible learning environment for our students. Many staff, parents and community members are actively engaged in planning phase one of the bond construction and innovation work. In November 2014  Boulder Valley School District voters approved a $576 million bond issue, which will fund significant improvements in all schools. 

Parent, family and community partnerships are essential to achieve the hopes and dreams of all students, and I look forward to a great school year.
