Boulder Universal

Message from the Principal

Welcome to a new school year! Our Back to School event was a great success - full of laughter and new relationships. We were delighted that so many could attend, if you were not able to join us, we welcome the opportunity for you to visit the new Online Learning Center and BU offices. A hearty thank you for all the food and goodies you shared for the dinner - the leftovers provided lunch for staff the rest of the week! As we look ahead to our new school year, I want to share a few changes and new opportunities.


First, as many of you experienced, we are in a new space. The new Online Learning Center is simply beautiful and has many if not all the tools and supplies for students to attend the Lab. There they can connect with other students, get help from a teacher or tutor, or gather resources from our career center or literature library. This year Boulder Universal is participating in the District’s 1:Web initiative. Yes, we have always been 1:Web for coursework, this will bring additional resources to our students and teachers. You will hear more as our team works through details.


We continue our School Advisory Committee (SAC) work and look forward to input from parents and students to improve the experience for all. We invite you to join us as a committee member or as a participant in the meetings. One of our school goals is to sustain the work on improving our curriculum. The BU teachers have done a tremendous job of identifying needed improvements in all courses and they continue the work to implement instructional strategies to support all learners, offer more choice for students to demonstrate proficiency, and improve the overall user experience.


I wish you and your student the best this year! If you have questions or concerns, please connect directly with your student’s mentor. Lisa and Julie can respond directly or connect you to other staff.


Sincerely,

Diana Gamboa
