District Leader Seeks Engagement from Teachers, Families, Students
BSD Superintendent Tom Flanagan is passionate about engagement.
“My 100 Day Entry Plan was intentionally created to focus on three things I believe every school district needs to be successful: equity, deep learning, and engagement,” said Superintendent Flanagan. “As part of that, I am forming three Superintendent Advisory Groups to meet monthly with teachers, families, and students.”
Applications to join the three advisory groups are due September 30 and can be found below.
Flanagan noted that the goal of the monthly meetings will be to build relationships and get feedback on what is happening around the District, what is being planned, and how the Superintendent and Central Office can be effective partners.
“I want to engage families, students, and staff as true partners in the educational process, to make sure that the needs of a broad range of people are included as decisions are made in the District.”
With an eye on equity, the District will work to have a representative sample of the BSD population involved. Each group will have at least 12 members, including representatives from each school and those who are receiving special education or EL services; groups will also be deliberately created to reflect a diversity of race, class/socio-economic background, and sexual and gender identity.
“All of you play an important and integral role in promoting the social, emotional, and academic success of all students, and I want to hear from you,” added Flanagan.
