This Week In The Blog:
We recognize the important role all of you play in providing a voice for your school communities. For this reason, we would personally like to ask for your help in getting out the word about next fall’s Board of Education elections to folks in your communities that may be good candidates.
The BVSD Board of Education is hosting four information sessions for prospective candidates. The sessions will be a good opportunity for folks to hear directly from current board members about the district, the school board election process and what it is like to be a school board member.
Tuesday, April 16th at 11:30am (please RSVP to Laura Shafer at 720-561-5114 or email@example.com so that we can provide lunch)
Wednesday, April 17th at 6:30pm
Saturday, April 27th at 10:00am
Monday, May 6th at 6:30pm
We will provide handouts, and host an informal questions and answer session.
Four of the Board's seven seats will be decided at the November 5th election, two of which are term limited. The Director districts that are up for election are A, C, D, and G. Candidates MUST live in the director district in which they are running; however, they are voted upon by the entire BVSD community. If you have questions about the director district in which you live, please use this link: Board of Education Director District Locator Map.
Thank you again for your help in getting out the word about these important opportunities.
6. Community members, parents and students should refrain from bringing dogs on campus during drop off and pick up times. Principals may use their discretion as to how to handle individual situations.
