October 10, 2016 – The Bakersfield City School District (BCSD) values the involvement of the community in the education of our children. On October 7th, BCSD celebrated its Community Partners In Education (CPIE) event, gathering more than a 100 stakeholders for a State of the District presentation over breakfast.
Superintendent Doc Ervin and Assistant Superintendent Mark Luque shared the District’s Academic Blueprint for Success, which includes important components such as Family and Community Engagement, School Climate and Culture, Targeted Student Support Systems, Effective Teachers and Effective School Leaders.
Mentoring Partnership was an essential topic addressed. BCSD made a call for mentors and the commitment to support students, a call which was answered by dozens of attendees.
After the event, BCSD principals invited our community partners to visit and tour school sites to see first-hand the teaching and learning that is taking place in our classrooms every day.
“It is evident the great work BCSD does to benefit students academically. I am convinced that the District is on the right path,” said Dr. Horace Mitchell, President of California State University Bakersfield.
BCSD’s Vision is to be a leader in public education through a collaborative and supportive learning community that ensures all students are inspired to achieve academic excellence and become life-long learners and productive citizens.
