Better Together, presents a path for our school district to navigate the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects on our staff, students, and community. The concept arose from the deep concern our community has for the emotional well-being of our staff and students in Birmingham Public Schools. Our resolute dedication to creating a secure and nurturing educational setting remains unwavering, as we strive to foster an atmosphere where every staff member and child feels a sense of belonging. BPS exemplifies Better Together!
Our work so far:
Over the past five years, the district has made a conscientious effort to tackle diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as prioritize character education and social-emotional learning. We have compiled a summary of the progress achieved thus far.
Birmingham Public Schools has recognized and collaborates with various community organizations and has established partnerships with several affinity groups that engage and provide support to families and students.
These groups are frequently called upon to participate in committees, assist in creating surveys, and coordinate focus groups on specific subjects.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education
