Dear Team BCPS,
We have officially launched our newest STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) resource for helping students and staff collaborate and innovate. The Mobile Innovation Lab is a mobile classroom and makerspace where students engage in hands-on learning experiences including coding, programming, robotics, and circuitry.
The Lab will visit schools throughout Baltimore County, staying at each one for a weeklong residency, starting with elementary schools. Learn more about our Innovative Learning Projects here.
As I look back on this year, I’m proud of our progress to transform teaching and learning so that individual needs are met for our more than 112,000 students. At 88% of our schools, students have access to 1:1 personalized learning through S.T.A.T. Forty of our elementary schools are offering Spanish through the Passport Program.
Making teaching and learning more interactive and dynamic so that students are truly prepared for the rigors of the future requires thoughtfulness and creativity. I appreciate the hard work of our staff and students, and the support of our families.
Take some time to enjoy the winter break, and come back to us refreshed and ready for 2017. I wish everyone a very happy holiday season!
S. Dallas Dance
