The Boulder Valley School District No. Re2 is a school district in Colorado, headquartered in the BVSD Education Center in unincorporated Boulder County, near Boulder. The district serves Boulder, Gold Hill, Jamestown, Lafayette, Louisville, Nederland, Superior, and Ward. Its area also includes portions of Broomfield and Erie.
The Boulder Valley Board of Education officially appointed Bruce K. Messinger, Ph.D., the district’s current deputy superintendent, to be its new superintendent as of July 1, 2011. Messinger, 54, succeeded Dr. Chris King.
Prior to the School District Organization Act of 1957 passed by the Colorado Legislature, Boulder County was served by multiple local school districts. The consolidation of many smaller districts resulted from the Act and by 1960, Boulder County was served by two reorganized school districts. Boulder Valley School District RE-2 serves the southern half of the county; Saint Vrain Valley School District RE-1J, the northern half.
Community courses and extended day care opportunities are provided to district residents by Community Schools, an organization that uses tuition- and facility-use fees for operational expenses. It operates four programs: Lifelong Learning, which offers courses for adults and children; Kindergarten Care, which offers extended child care for kindergarten students, the School Age Program, which offers before and after school programs and summer day camps for elementary school students; and the BVSD Facility Use Program, which makes school facilities available to the public.
