These conferences are for parents and teachers to discuss students who need additional support in the class or if you have specific issues or questions that you want to address. If your student is doing great in the class and you have no issues to discuss, do not schedule a conference.

One morning this past fall, Boulder TEC students gathered for a not-so-typical lesson in plumbing. Instead of happening in the Construction Trades classroom at Boulder TEC, the lesson took place at Boulder High’s Recht Field and was led by BVSD’s lead plumber Ted Burke. The experience was part of an innovative program that took advantage of BVSD’s in-house construction trades expertise and a district-wide inventory of facilities to provide authentic, work-based learning experiences for TEC students.

Restorative practices (you’re likely already using them at home)

In the Boulder Valley School District, Restorative Practices are used as a school-wide framework, focusing on intentionally building, maintaining and repairing relationships. You're likely already using some of these restorative practices in your own home. Utilizing Restorative Practices both at school and at home can be a holistic approach in helping students problem-solve and learn conflict resolution skills, gain a better sense of relationship building, and feel supported by the adults in their lives.
