At individual schools,
parents and community members are encouraged to volunteer for specific
school activities, events and programs, to join parent teacher
organizations, booster clubs, or to serve on the School Improvement Team
or School Advisory Council. At many schools there are opportunities to
proctor important tests, to judge Senior Projects, and to become mentors
directly involved with student success. Information about volunteering in schools
is available on this website. See individual school websites for
information on serving on the School Improvement Team or School Advisory
Council. Also, you can view Board Policy #5001, Advisory Councils.
On the district level,
parents and community members can participate in strategic planning
activities, serve on one of the Superintendent’s Advisory Councils, or
provide input through system-wide advisory committees focused on needs
such as developing the annual school system calendar, meeting the needs
of exceptional children, and enhancing STEM and global awareness
Opportunities to provide feedback are also provided through phone, email
and online surveys as the need arises. We encourage all stakeholders
to take a few minutes to provide their input when those opportunities
can also become involved with the school system, or with a specific
school, to help support BCS instructional programs. You can find out
more about community involvement through links on this website, or by
