Haleemat Adekoya - Student Board Member

Report to the Board of Education of Baltimore County From the Student Member of the Board

August 8, 2018

Good evening everyone!

I am Haleemat Adekoya, student member of the board of education. On July 17, 2018, I had the opportunity to visit the Curriculum Writing Workshop for BCPS. The workshop consisted of dedicated BCPS teachers who sacrificed time out of their summer schedules to create and revise certain curriculums set in place to ensure more flexibility as well as applicable and assessable access for both students and teachers. This group of teachers was working hard to make sure that all students, despite their learning skills or level of comprehension, were given the space and resources to flourish accordingly. I am very thankful to all of the teachers and staff that dedicated their time and efforts to give us students the best education possible.

With that being said, students, our school year will soon commence. I am very excited for what this year will bring. Each individual student under BCPS matters. Whether it is an art student, STEM student, an athlete, or a student still discovering his or her talents, each student matters. You matter and your voice matters as well. Decisions made by the Board, teachers, and administrators pertaining to BCPS students should always have our collective interest at heart. It is because of them that we are here, and they matter as well. Policies created, discussed, and voted on regarding students should continuously uphold the standard of making the right decisions that involve the greater interest of each BCPS student’s individuality and personal needs. There should be no selfish or self-righteous intent when it comes to the students of BCPS and matters that concern them.

With the 2018-2019 school year right around the corner, I am very excited to interact with you as students of BCPS! With that being said, BCSC is hosting BCPS Night at the Yard featuring Kenwood Air Force JROTC bringing in the colors and the Dulaney High School Chamber Choir singing the anthem and O Canada. Check out the BCPS website for more information!

Students, you are the reason why I am here. Please do not hesitate to contact me or invite me to any school events. I cannot wait to see all of your beautiful faces. Everyone must remember to put your best food forward this school year, set your goals, and do not stop achieving them! Class of 2019- this is our year! Let us lead the way on this initiative and set a positive example for each class coming after us!

Thank you.
