Mission Moment: We are growing!

The Education of BCPS, Inc. has grown in more ways than one by establishing a new Advisory Council.

The purpose of the council is to offer the foundation advice to effectively navigate and provide prospective on topics pertaining to future endeavors.

Our first meeting was held on Thursday, February 9, 2018.  The conversation carried throughout the meeting was compelling.  By identifying the needs of the school house with the perspective of our advisors, we can communicate those needs to our partners in the community.

Our newly appointed advisors consist of community members who carry the voices of educators, parents, alumni, non-profits, government, workforce development, and more.   This new platform brings stakeholders together to expand the conversation as advisors who experience the world of education up close.   It is our hope that through this newly established advisory council we can bridge relationships, resulting in collaborative programs that can support equity throughout the district.

As a result, the foundation has grown in numbers as well as knowledge which will allow the foundation to elevate its mission.  We look forward to future discussions as well as sharing more information.

In addition, we would like to thank our distinguished list of individuals who have volunteered their time and expertise by accepting their positions on the advisory council.

Stay tuned.  New information will be posted on our web site as www.educationfoundationbcps.org
