The Leadership Team will begin their work together in January. We will also be adding 2-4 parents to the Leadership Team.

When will the boundaries of the new elementary be decided upon?
St. Vrain Valley Schools follows an organized process for modifying new school boundaries. Feedback collected from community members and district officials is combined with data accumulated by St. Vrain's planning department on growth/capacity, transportation and safety factors, neighborhood considerations and educational focus program impacts, to formulate approximately three boundary scenarios. Public boundary discussions are then conducted throughout the community to acquire feedback on each scenario. This feedback is heavily considered by St. Vrain's planning department and included in the report to the Board of Education. Initial boundary discussions were conducted in October.
A final recommendation was presented to the Board of Education on November 15. The Board of Education will adopt the approved boundaries during their meeting on December 13.
What schools will Elementary 27 feed into?
Part of the boundary analysis will include consideration of appropriate feeder schools. The specific pathway in which schools feed out of Elementary 27 will be finalized once new school boundaries have been adopted by the Board of Education.
When will the name of the school be decided? How is the school named?
