BC invites stakeholders to focus group conversations

Filed in Archive, BCHS, BCMS, District, District News by on July 10, 2020

To encourage constructive dialogue on two crucial issues facing our school community, the BCSD Committee for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion is inviting interested stakeholders to join focus group conversations to improve student and staff connectedness and identify ways to ensure a healthy school climate.

These meetings will be virtual meetings, held online via Zoom.

  • Topic 1: Racial equity, social justice and race relations in the school community
    • July 22, 2020 – 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
    • July 29, 2020 – 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Topic 2: Sexual harassment, peer relationships and supporting students in crisis
    • July 27, 2020 – 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
    • July 29, 2020 – 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 

Middle school and high school students, parents, staff and community members are encouraged to participate. To accommodate as many people as possible, there are two scheduled sessions for each topic. The scheduled sessions will be lead by trained facilitators. 

The committee recognizes that these issues can intersect so in addition to participants having an opportunity to participate in conversations on both topics, there will be limited time set aside to discuss both issues within each session. 

If you are interested in participating in these discussions, please complete this RSVP form. You will need to include your name and an email address so you can receive login instructions for the meeting.

PLEASE RSVP by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 17, 2020.
