The Student Advisory Board (SAB) is a fun and collaborative leadership experience for Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) high school students.

We launched this program in 2019 to help advise our efforts and guide our investments. Our Student Advisory Board brings together students currently enrolled in Boulder Valley’s 13 high schools to share their perspectives and insights and create an initiative focused on an issue of importance to them.

Some discussion topics include:

The Student Advisory Board:

Students must be committed to sharing their school observations and experiences and driven to improve both their own schools and BVSD as a district.
