October 2, 2017 – Hundreds of community members and BCSD administrators gathered at the Bakersfield Marriot Hotel for BCSD’s 14th annual Community Partners in Education (CPIE) breakfast. Attendees were seated with district administration and school principals where they had the opportunity to discuss school performance and goals. Guests also heard from Superintendent Doc Ervin and Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services Mark Luque about the district’s achievements over the last school year, as well as goals and objectives for this school year and beyond.
Attendees also enjoyed performances from three Thorner Elementary School musical groups that included their advanced troubadours, cloggers and percussion. Dwight Rollins, great-grandfather to Stella Hills students attended CPIE and said, “I understand the importance of showing my great-grandchildren that I care for them, and that education is vital to succeed. I want to show them the effort I put toward their education by getting involved at the School Site Council, the District African American Parent Advisory Committee and Parent University.”
At the conclusion of the breakfast, attendees were invited to take a tour of various BCSD campuses to visit classrooms, interact with teachers and students, and speak directly to the principals and/or administration of the school they were attending.
CPIE was created to engage the community and form a partnership with BCSD in order to support fundraising events, and improve classrooms, campuses and the overall educational experience for each student.
