Superintendent's Message

BCPS appreciates the productive partnership between home and school that contributes to the success of our children.  

On May 21, BCHS begins construction on the new addition and renovation project.  In an effort to communicate what is happening, Mr. Scott Joseph, BCHS principal, has created a 4-minute video to help explain what the project will look like, and also what construction phasing will begin to look like on May 21.  Some of these renderings are not 100% accurate but will give you an idea of where we are heading in this project. 

Mr. Joseph says, "We are not about buildings, but I am excited about a building that will allow our students to have a great educational experience."  The link to that video is:

It is a true blessing and honor to serve the community as Superintendent of Schools!

Think Spring!
