Improving Communication to You - District Upgrading Website: In an effort to improve communication to our parents, students, staff and community, Boise School District is in the process of upgrading this fall to a new website. We are excited about this project and look forward to launching new school websites and a District website that will:   

  • Help you navigate easily to the information you are seeking, whether that be new teacher pages, school and classroom calendars, academic information,  or information about meals or transportation, to name just a few; and
  • Communicate the culture of the Boise School District by the stories we tell and the photos we share, all of which will support our brand of being a high performing nationally-recognized comprehensive liberal arts public school system dedicated to preparing students for college, career and citizenship.   

We anticipate the new websites will be available by late October or early November. As we work through this transition, parents should be aware that if you are not able to find faculty, staff or classroom information on your school website, please contact your school. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we build a better website to improve communication and better serve your needs.
