Are you a parent of a school-aged child? A teacher? Someone who cares

about education? Someone who cares about the role that schools play in our
community and how neighbors relate to schools?

The Neighborhood Education Committee (NEC) might be a good fit for you.  All are welcome.  

The NEC usually meets the 1st Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm at BPDC’s Mary Kaser Community Room. 

The 12-year-old NEC is an independent community group, supported by
BPDC through staff time and meeting space. It meets to discuss school issues;
it has hosted sessions in which students, teachers and principals have met and
talked to community members, organized a workshop on Internet safety, and
held gatherings to talk about construction plans for neighborhood schools
which have been rebuilt.

The committee includes parents and caregivers as well as others affiliated
with churches and businesses, and citizens who care about what goes on in
our schools.

Former Principal Johnson of JMH is guest speaker at NEC mtg in 2008. The NEC is a great way to get to know the schools in the neighborhood better and get connected.
