Impact on Education is in direct and constant communication with Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) to ensure that our students and families are supported during these uncharted times.
Currently, all schools in Boulder Valley School District are closed until April 17th.
We are working closely with District leaders to ensure we are able to provide food to the families who rely on school for meals. At the same time, we are raising critical funds to prepare for the possibility of remote learning for students without access to technology.
As the Foundation for Boulder Valley School District, we at Impact on Education are stepping up to help support students and schools in unprecedented ways.
We are focusing our efforts in these three places:
|We are working closely with BVSD Food Services to line up volunteers to assemble bags that will be distributed to families in need next week across our community. Many students rely on school for breakfast, lunch, and weekend nutrition. With our partners at BVSD, we are committed to ensuring that students and their families receive nutritious food while students are unexpectedly out of school. If you’d like to volunteer, please sign up here. Please understand opportunities are fluid, based on pending needs and potential group gathering restrictions.
|In case school closures extend beyond spring break, we are getting tens of thousands of school supplies and backpacks ready to be used to support ongoing learning among students without access to technology.
|Once this is all behind us and kids are back in school, Impact on Education is looking for creative ways to fund after school/weekend enrichment to help our kids catch up and make sure that the gap in learning doesn’t become a permanent deficit.
How you can help now:

From the Department of Public Health & Environment:
Social distancing is an effective public health tool for preventing the spread of disease, but it’s still important to connect with friends & loved ones. Try video chats or just give them a call. Remember to keep 6 feet between you & others if you do need to go out in public.
