SUPERINTENDENT’S MONTHLY MESSAGE

June 2017

Dear Team BCPS,

Celebrating the biggest milestone in a young person’s life never gets old. All year long, I look forward to shaking hands with our newest alumni. Check out the high school graduation schedule for dates, times, and locations. Livestreaming is available for our 24 comprehensive high schools at www.bcps.org.

The last day of school is Tuesday, June 13, and it will be a short day for all grade levels. I hope that our educators and students balance a refreshing break with plenty of opportunities to learn and try new things. Parents can check out Parent University for workshops and resources available throughout the summer.

As you may know, this will be my last note to you. Working with the students, staff, and residents of Baltimore County for the past five years has been a true honor and a privilege. From day one, I have been impressed by the spirit and dedication of this entire community—our families, our educators, and our business and community leaders.

Thank you so much for working alongside me to help each and every one of our students learn, thrive, and lead. I will always be the biggest cheerleader for Team BCPS.

It may be from a distance, but I will be following along as Chief Academic Officer Verletta White becomes interim superintendent on July 1. I know that wonderful achievements are in store for our students and schools.

Best wishes!
