Voters Approve St. Vrain Bond Issue

St. Vrain Valley's $260.3 million bond issue was passing easily, with 59 percent voting yes to 41 percent voting no, based on preliminary results from Boulder, Weld, Larimer and Broomfield counties.

"You've got to give credit to an entire community that came together and once again said education matters," said St. Vrain Valley Superintendent Don Haddad. "The only thing I can say is a big thank you."

Superintendent Update

As the 2016-17 school year rapidly moves forward, I am constantly reminded of the extremely important role education has in our society. Toward this end, we, as St. Vrain educators and public servants, value deeply our responsibility to advance the success of our students and our entire community. The ability to adapt, change and continually elevate our public education system is what will ensure that our students and our community are prepared for the challenges we face in a highly competitive global environment.

I Teach Because...

Think back to when you were a student, back-to-school shopping, finding your classroom, and the exciting lessons that would soon fill your day. The first day of school jitters that were calmed by the friendly, welcoming face, and celebrating the “ah ha” moments when you finally figured out how to solve the problem. Then there was the time in kindergarten, when you went to the restroom but couldn’t remember the way back to your classroom. As panic set in, that friendly face walked around the corner and they knew exactly where your classroom was.
