BVSD Lifelong Learning (LLL) offers classes and camps that are supplemental enrichment to the school day. Classes can run anywhere from one session to 12 weeks, and may be cancelled beforehand due to low enrollment.
Community Schools offers BVSD Child Care through three programs.
Lifelong Learning classes are hosted at BVSD schools outside of school hours. Some classes are also hosted at artist studios or instructor facilities and others are held online. In addition to many locations across Boulder, classes are also held in eastern Boulder County from Broomfield to Longmont.
The Lifelong Learning staff takes all precautions to ensure the health and safety of the children at our classes and camps. Before your register your child for a class or camp, please email email@example.com with up-to-date information about your child’s specific needs and concerns. All health information is kept confidential. Relevant information includes whether your child has:
- Medical issues (allergies, asthma, need for an epi-pen, diabetes, etc.)
- Behavioral concerns (Autism Spectrum, fears, other special problems)
We will work closely with the parents, school and program instructors to meet the requirements of children with special medical, physical or behavioral needs.

Lifelong Learning offers 50% tuition assistance for families whose children are on free/reduced lunch (FRL). The remaining 50% is to be paid by the family or financial designee to cover the vendor's cost of running the class.
Effective January 1, 2022, the discount on LLL classes and camps for BVSD employees and their children will be changed to 15%.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details and discount codes before registering for classes.
For the 2022 summer term, BVSD Lifelong Learning Enrichment has added BVSD Summer HUB Supervisors at each camp location to provide onsite supervision Monday through Friday during LLL camp hours. This new position will ensure health and safety support of LLL campers and act as a liaison between Lifelong Learning, the school staff, parents and camp instructors. A one-time $60 charge per child per summer has been added to summer camp registrations to fund this new resource.

We provide the school staff with rosters listing the students who are staying for Lifelong Learning after-school classes. Those rosters are then shared with the classroom teachers, who assist with transitioning their students to the class locations. For younger students who may need a little extra help with this transition, we suggest that parents connect with their child's classroom teacher and clarify the procedure.

Kids, Teens and Adult Classes:
- Refunds will be given up to 2 weeks (14 days) prior to the start of class minus a 10% cancellation fee.
- Refunds will not be given 13 days or less from the start of class. This ensures there is an adequate class size for participation and allows Lifelong Learning to keep our commitment to our contractors who provide the service.
- There are no refunds due to COVID-19 unless there is a government or locally issued shutdown by the public health department.
- Please reach out to our team if your child has medical documentation or a physician's note indicating they cannot attend a registered class.
- Refunds are returned in the same manner as the registration was paid.
- If a class is cancelled by Lifelong Learning, a full refund will be issued.
To request a cancellation contact us at email@example.com
If Lifelong Learning cancels a class(es) you will be notified by email seven (7) days prior to the class start date. Classes will be canceled if there are fewer than three (3) students registered seven (7) days prior to the start date. Please be sure to check for messages!
If we have a single class cancellation or early dismissal due to inclement weather, we will notify families via email and district inclement weather communication.
Lifelong Learning classes will be canceled if:
There are three reasons a Lifelong Learning Class may be canceled:
- BVSD has closed schools or canceled after-school activities due to inclement weather or other unforeseen situation.
- An instructor becomes ill or has an emergency and needs to cancel or reschedule a class.
- Classes do not meet the minimum enrollment requirement of three (3) registered students seven (7) days prior to the start of class.
In the event of a BVSD Lifelong Learning class session cancellation due to circumstances outside of our control, every effort will be made to reschedule that session. If rescheduling is not possible, Lifelong Learning vouchers will be issued to each class member for the prorated value of that session.
Lifelong Learning will consider a transfer from your original registered class to a different class if the transfer is requested in writing two weeks (14 days) or more before the start of the original registered class. Requests will be honored based on space availability.
Transfers cannot be completed once you are within the 2 week (14 days) time period.
Contact us at 720-561-5968 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Photographs or videos of you or your child in BVSD Lifelong Learning activities may be used for print promotion, digital promotion, educational/training purposes and/or media coverage for the BVSD Lifelong Learning Program. Students or parents/guardians of students who do not want themselves or their children to be included in these photographs or videos must provide the BVSD Lifelong Learning Program with written notice to that effect.
BVSD assures equal access to after school programs and extracurricular activities for students with disabilities. IEPs do not automatically apply to these programs, so the School District conducts an individualized inquiry about the student’s needs and whether there are reasonable modifications, aids or services that could be provided to allow the student an equal opportunity for participation in the program or activity. These discussions can occur in an IEP meeting, a Section 504 meeting or in an individualized discussion between a coach or activity leader and a parent.
If you believe your student requires modifications or accommodations to access a BVSD Lifelong Learning Enrichment program, please email email@example.com.
