BVSD is adding more space for preschool throughout the district
Preschool child running

BVSD believes that strong educational opportunities in the early years set children on a path to academic success. The master plan supports BVSD’s goal to expand early childhood education in the district by adding classrooms to accommodate full day kindergarten and constructing new and improving existing preschool classrooms and playgrounds. 

 

New Facility Expected to Boost Safety and Efficiency

Thanks to generous taxpayer investment, BVSD’s Boulder-based buses got a new home in 2019. At more than twice the size of the old building, the new Transportation Center provides three more maintenance bays, significantly more storage, and room for driver training.

Ancient archtypes inspire modern learning environments

As our educators strive to create learning spaces that will work for different types of learners and learning, they are looking to a set of ancient archetypes to guide them—the campfire, the cave, the watering hole, and life or hands-on application as described by scientist and educator David Thornburg.

Building renovations and learning spaces will be designed to meet the needs of today’s students and the students of the future.

Energy modeling for the new Creekside, Douglass, Emerald and Meadowlark buildings predicts significant reductions in energy use compared to the current buildings and/or compared with code-compliant construction. BVSD's Sustainable Energy Plan sets a goal of Zero Net Energy or Zero Net Energy Capable for new construction. Zero net energy means that a building produces as much energy through renewable sources as it uses. ZNEC buildings are designed to be as energy efficient as possible and to allow for the future installation of renewable energy generators such as wind turbines or photovoltaic panels. Deep Energy Retrofits were conducted on several other projects and are yielding equally impressive results. In particular, overall energy use at Broomfield Heights is predicted to drop by nearly 30 percent even though air conditioning has been installed in the building.

Students and community members alike will have more opportunity for exercising outside on new artificial turf fields installed at six BVSD middle schools. Because they are more durable than natural grass, the artificial fields provide more play time each day and throughout the year. The fields also use less water and chemicals and require less maintenance than natural grass.
