•To provide opportunities for participation in education funding decisions that impact the school communities of the St. Vrain Valley
We are grateful for the partnerships in the St. Vrain Valley communities that we have had the pleasure of developing over the years. We would like to extend our thanks to our Superintendent Don Haddad and the SVVSD Administration for your collaboration, partnership and encouragement; to our locally elected officials, the St Vrain Valley Education Association, and the St. Vrain Valley Board of Education for their support on campaigns; to our elected State Senators and Representatives for answering our questions and their time spent with us at coffee houses and the Capitol; and to our SVVSD Principals and Parent Organizations for welcoming us to meetings. We have learned so much from all of you and we are grateful for your support.
