A Day of Excellence: An Inside View of Education in Our Community
Share Your Voice and Celebrate Our Schools
We invite you to spend the day deepening your knowledge of district operations, lending your voice to future planning and programs, and celebrating the achievements of our students, teachers, staff, and partners who have transformed St.
Across the district, we have been championing a new motivational motto that is uniting our shared vision for excellence in learning and student advancement: We are taking public education by #StVrainStorm! Every day, I observe countless examples of students, teachers, staff, and community partners exemplifying the highest levels of achievement and drive that represent the very best of our public schools. Our graduation rates are at their highest level – over 90 percent at our traditional schools – and St. Vrain was also one of only four districts in Colorado and 373 nationally to be recognized by College Board’s Annual AP District Honor Roll. Enrollment in Advanced Placement (AP) courses has increased by 50 percent since 2014 with over 3,000 students enrolled in at least one AP class.
Each spring, the Education Foundation for the St. Vrain Valley hosts the Tribute to Teachers, an event that honors and recognizes the excellence of our teachers and brings out the stories of the superheroes in our district that go above and beyond. On May 4, 2019, the Education Foundation will be hosting the Tribute to Teachers at the Westin Hotel and Conference Center in Westminster.
It has already been an outstanding year of growth and success across St. Vrain Valley Schools. Day after day, we hear of numerous student achievements, teacher accolades, industry partnerships, grant awards, and so many more recognitions that are building significant momentum behind our world-class education system. This year, St. Vrain Valley Schools continues to see significant advancements in academic achievement. Specifically: four-year graduation rates have continued to increase with among the highest requirements in the state; test scores, achievement, and participation with the SAT, ACT, CMAS, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate continues to rise; numerous students are earning many highly-competitive and prestigious scholarships, all of which has garnered statewide and national acclaim for St. Vrain Valley Schools and our entire community.
The St. Vrain Valley Schools’ Senior Volunteer Program is once again available for the 2018-2019 school year. The program began in November 2012 to welcome seniors and individuals with disabilities into our schools and provide them financial assistance with their county property taxes. Up to 200 participants will be paid a maximum of 40 hours at $11.10 per hour for a total of $444 between January 2, 2019 and April 30, 2019.
