The St. Vrain Valley School District’s once-a-month parent and community member engagement program is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
The Leadership St. Vrain program covers topics that include budget and funding, digital learning and technology and school culture, engagement and safety. Two years ago, the district also added a shorter, one-day version that is offered annually in the spring dubbed the Day of Excellence.
Leadership St. Vrain started in 2009 with 15 participants. Since then, 487 people have participated.
Past participants have been recruited to serve as school board members. Others started Grassroots St. Vrain, which focuses on community education around school funding and legislation across the state of Colorado.
