Superintendent's Message

As we look around Byron Center, there is no question that families are moving into BC.  I am biased, but I see why.  We have an excellent community, strong support, amazing children, and a strong school system.  We at BCPS are proud to serve a community like BC, and we have an excellent problem we have to solve.  We are growing.  We are almost out of room at Byron Center High School, and we have needs across the district as we continue to grow.  It was exciting to work together at the Community Meeting last Thursday to learn more about the BCPS plan in how we would work together to solve this problem.  


BCPS holds firm to our values of being good stewards of our finances while providing the best opportunities for our students.  View the attached slides to see the plan that is set forth holding onto the values of making sure we focus on the whole child, student achievement, culture of our schools and fiscal responsibility.


‚ÄčIf you are willing and able to partner with BCPS to help spread the word, please contact Alison Vander Heide to let her know you would be willing to help serve.  Thank You!
