Addressing the school’s technology needs, increasing community engagement, and continuing to foster a positive school climate with real-world learning were the three key themes that emerged when community members joined school officials and Board of Education members at a goal-setting exercise after the board’s reorganizational meeting on July 6.

The goal-setting exercise drew on several years of community feedback BKW has received through various forums and surveys. School officials and stakeholders from the BKW community were divided into five groups, facilitated by BKW Class of 1966 alumnus Glenn Grey.

The groups were asked “How should the Board of Education support the mission of the School District?” The brainstorming and discussions resulted in each group developing a few goals/objectives that were then shared with the entire group.

“The board will now take these 15 or so objectives that were developed with community input and boil them down to three to four goals for the upcoming school year,” said Superintendent Dr. Timothy Mundell. “These goals will support the district mission of positioning all students for success.”
