Blue Valley Schools named to top 10 on Forbes’ list of America’s Best Employers by State

Blue Valley Schools was named to Forbes Best-in-State Employers list, ranking in the top 10 of Kansas employers. Coming in at number 8, Blue Valley is the top-ranked K-12 school district in the Kansas City metro area.


“This accolade is especially meaningful knowing the ranking was based on the opinions of our current employees,” said Dr. Eric Punswick, executive director of Human Resources. “Our goal is to provide positive work environments for our more than 3,000 employees who are the heart and soul of our organization. This honor is a true testament to their impact in our community as we work together to reimagine learning so our students can change the world.”


Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to select America’s Best-in-State Employers based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 80,000 U.S. employees. The survey was administered in a series of anonymous online panels allowing participants to openly share their opinions. Participants were asked to rate how likely they would be to recommend their employers to friends and family along with nominating an organization in an industry outside of their own.
