Buena Vista School District is committed to excellent stewardship of the taxpayers’ facilities that support our mission of every student reaching the peak of success.  Routine and preventative maintenance are prioritized by our remarkable maintenance and custodial teams.  

The district has been awarded BEST (Building Excellent School Today) and Buell grants along with partnering with the non-profit Watershed, LLC and the Town of Buena Vista to extend local tax dollars to preserve and modernize facilities.  Renovations and additions to the elementary, middle and high school have recently been completed.   

Currently, the district is completing a multipurpose facility on the BVHS/MS Campus for winter activities/practices and Chaffee County High School (CCHS) work/office space.  The Old McGinnis Gym on the District Office Campus is currently being renovated with federal grants (Brownsfield) and state tax credits through a creative partnership with Watershed, LLC.   Design and funding for a consolidated preschool facility, freeing space for programming at the elementary, is underway. 

Future projects, dependent on community donations, will be a renovation of the high school track and field. 

Abe Hachmann, Hachmann Design and Engineer, has served as a local facility consultant throughout recent projects and has completed a Master Facility Plan.  

BV Schools is proud of and thankful for the facilities our students are able to utilize for their educational experience because of the generous support of our taxpayers.
