BOULDER, Colo. (KDVR) — The Boulder Valley School District announced Tuesday that classes will be 100% online for the first month of the fall semester. The district was originally planning on a hybrid model combining in-person and virtual learning.

BVSD is one of many districts along the Front Range that have announced changes due to the pandemic.

Classes are set to begin for BVSD students on Aug. 26 — about one week later than planned. Students will remain online until at least Sept. 22, when the district will reevaluate.

“Until now, our decisions (including our initial plan to start in Phase 3) were based primarily on the COVID-19 Health Data and the expert advice of our partners in public health. While they have been very supportive of our plan and the health-precautions within it, the situation is changing. We are witnessing a sustained upward trend in cases in our area that has given us reason to pause,” Dr. Rob Anderson, the district’s superintendent, said in a statement.

A BVSD spokesperson said a team will be looking at options for small-group, in-person learning.

More information about BVSD’s back-to-school plan can be found on its website.
