The success of BVSD students sometimes requires more than our schools and teachers are able to provide during the day, and this is where we step in. With the help of our community we can support students and families by providing equitable access to critical academic opportunities.

CURRENT INITIATIVES

  • ACADEMIC OPPORTUNITY

    We provide funding for students, schools and educators to ensure that all students are able to fully engage in learning and academic activities.

    Our Academic Opportunity Fund meets student and educator needs on a case-by-case basis by providing funding for supplemental learning and tutoring, class fees, technology, supplemental equipment, transportation expenses, and more.

    BY THE NUMBERS

    In the fall of 2021 we invested $100,000 to support schools this fall through:

    • Over 60 applications received
    • 50 application requests were funded by IOE 
    • We were able to connect 6 additional applicants to BVSD for support
    • We received applications from 30 different schools applied plus one application from BVSD District office and one from Community Schools
    • Schools ranged geographically from mountain schools (Gold Hill) to all the Broomfield schools (Emerald, Aspen Creek K8, Birch, Broomfield Heights MS, Broomfield HS) and everywhere in between (Louisville, Boulder, Lafayette, Superior)

    What we funded:

    • 10 funding requests for book purchases in some context (e.g., Battle of the Books, secondary Language Arts independent reading for Academic Support Class, updating of books for school library, graphic novels, Spanish language books)
    • 7 funding requests for software licenses or access for such departments or teams as Special Education, Math, and ILC
    • 6 funding requests for music supplies/instrumental repairs or access
    • 6 funding requests for transportation expenses, either RTD passes or gas cards for families in need
    • 4 funding requests for supplemental instruction/tutoring programs or for individual students
    • 3 funding requests for emergency basic supplies, such as winter outerwear and proper footwear to keep at school for emergency student use
    • 3 funding requests for art classroom supplies (including digital cameras for a photog class that previously required students to use their cell phones as cameras)
    • 2 funding requests for Chromebook chargers for whole school or classroom use, not provided by BVSD IT
  • SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTION

    We are committed to ensuring the disruptions to learning caused by the COVID-19 pandemic don’t result in long-term gaps in learning.

    To support students with unfinished learning, Impact on Education is funding targeted tutoring, ACT/SAT preparatory courses, credit recovery for students needing to retake a failed or incomplete course, and child care expenses that provide a safe before and after school environment for students.

  • MENTAL HEALTH

    We are committed to meeting the social emotional needs of BVSD students and educators by providing training and resources to students, educators, and staff to support their mental and behavioral health.

    What happens before and after school impacts the learning and experiences during the school day and at home.

    BVSD Student After Care (SAC) Supervisors and Assistant Supervisors serve a diverse group of students at 32 sites in BVSD. From grade levels to academic ability levels to emotional and behavioral health levels, the SAC leadership must manage all these students’ needs and still create a safe environment after school for students and staff.

    Impact on Education is funding mindfulness and social-emotional health training for these supervisors to teach them how to regulate their own emotions amidst challenging situations as well as teach the students strategies to self-regulate within these same challenging situations.

CRAYONS TO CALCULATORS

We lead a school supply distribution that ensures all students in Boulder Valley School District and St. Vrain Valley School District start the school year with the tools they need to succeed.
