ABOUT BLUE VALLEY RECREATION COMMISSION
The strong partnership between the Blue Valley Recreation Commission (BVRC) and Blue Valley Schools dates back to 1986. Members of the Blue Valley community expressed interest in more recreation opportunities in the area. As a result, the BVRC was formed under the umbrella of the school district. Today the partnership remains strong and is led by a seven-person policy-making board appointed by the Blue Valley Board of Education. An example of this partnership exists in the indoor rec facility at Hilltop Campus.
Blue Valley Recreation Commissioner applications are accepted during times of vacancy and prior to terms expiring, typically in the spring of each year. Patrons of Blue Valley Schools who have an interest in recreation and community service are invited to consider a position on the BVRC. Seven commissioners, all members of the community, are appointed by the Blue Valley Board of Education to serve staggered four-year terms. Two commissioners are appointed from each of the three board member districts and one is an at-large appointment open to a person residing anywhere within the district boundaries.
