The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.

The Race to the Top-District 2012 competition sponsored by the United States Department of Education is a grant opportunity for districts demonstrating how they can personalize education for all students in their schools. The Race to the Top-District program is aimed squarely at classrooms and the all-important relationship between educators and students. The Race to the Top-District grantees will receive four-year awards that range from $10 million to $40 million, depending on the number of students served through their plan. The winning applicants were the top scorers among the 372 applications the Department received in November, which were evaluated and scored by independent peer reviewers.
St. Vrain Valley Schools was selected for a Race to the Top-District award for $16,589,553.00 in December 2012. We are focusing on the Skyline feeder with an emphasis on STEM integration at all of the Skyline feeder schools, an augmented school year, and the development of an Innovation Center for high school students to be used as a pipeline for application of STEM learning in an environment that encourages creative thinking and entrepreneurial skill development. The Race to the Top schools in St. Vrain will provide teachers the information, tools, and supports that enable them to meet the needs of each student and substantially accelerate and deepen each student's learning. This initiative will create opportunities for students to identify and pursue areas of personal academic interest—all while ensuring that each student masters critical areas identified in college- and career-ready standards or college- and career-ready high school graduation requirements. The goal of the SVVSD Race to the Top plan is to replicate what we learn in other district feeders freeing up resources district wide for additional innovative programming to be developed and implemented.
