Superintendent's Update

As we move closer to the end of another outstanding year in St. Vrain Valley Schools, I want to take a moment to recognize the achievements and growth we have seen across our system. In the coming weeks, we will be championing the thousands of students who will be transitioning to kindergarten, middle school, high school or graduating with their St. Vrain Valley Schools diploma. It is through our outstanding educators, dedicated parents and unwavering community support that we have seen our students and schools excel to the highest levels of achievement.

Superintendent's Update

Dear St. Vrain Valley Community,

Public education is the cornerstone of our democracy. The impact of our schools and their role in shaping the future success of our society extends far beyond the smart boards, desks and walls of our classrooms. From economic development, to national security, to home and commercial property values, to business and corporate development, and community growth, our public schools provide a strong foundation for advancing the quality of our lives and the direction of our future.

Dear St. Vrain Resident,

Thanks to a supportive community, highly qualified and committed teachers and staff, and engaged parents, the entire family of St. Vrain Valley Schools is experiencing enormous success. As Superintendent of Schools, I am especially proud of the work being done to expand high-rigor instructional programming throughout the 53 schools that comprise our comprehensive PreK-12 system.

Some noteworthy achievements include:

  • Invest in Innovation (i3) Federal Grant Winner: Top score application of 1,700 applicants ($3,600,000)
  • Legacy Foundation Advanced Placement Grant ($300,000)
  • District named 2012 'Large Business of the Year' by Longmont Chamber of Commerce
  • Highest 3rd grade reading scores in our district's history for the past three years
  • Numerous John Irwin School of Excellence Awards (Colorado's top 8 percent high performing schools)
  • Several Colorado Trailblazer 'School to Watch' Awards
  • Numerous Governor's Distinguished Improvement Awards
  • Winner - Several Colorado Principal of the Year Awards for district principals

Our entire community benefits significantly when we work together to build and maintain a strong system of public schools.
