When families walk out of Blue Valley’s fall conferences, teachers want families to know how much they care and love their students and that they are on the student's side.
Emily Gill, a gifted teacher at Overland Trail Middle, knows how vital it is to have families on every student's team.
“We are an advocate for the student, and we are all working toward the same goals,” Gill said. “Anytime you have time set aside to build relationships, it’s going to benefit everyone. Later on, if a problem arises, I know as a parent myself that I’ve already met someone, and they are on my child’s team.”

Blue Valley Schools and the Board of Education understand the importance and responsibility of future planning. In September, Blue Valley Schools started conducting a survey to learn how the community views potential facility projects, rates of taxation and perceived value. The first phase of the survey was conducted via phone to randomly selected participants. Now, patrons who may not have been called have an opportunity to provide input through an online survey.
All community members are encouraged to participate in a brief and confidential online survey available through Oct. 3. Thanks in advance for your valuable interest and insight!
