The Big Rapids Public Schools Board of Education is considering the pursuit of a bond proposal this November 2017. Borne out of discussions held during our strategic planning process that involved community members in 2015, it became clear that while we have many areas to be proud of, much work still needs to be done to improve and expand upon the quality and safety of our learning environments throughout the district. Since then, we have worked diligently to address as many of these areas for improvement as possible, utilizing our internal resources and our Building and Site Sinking Fund. However, we still have several major needs that we are unable to address. In March, we held listening sessions with our faculty and staff. The common theme resonating at every level is that the expectations for teaching and learning have changed considerably since our last bond proposal more than 20 years ago. These expectations bring forth new challenges inside the classroom – challenges we can overcome by having the ability to provide opportunities for the best possible outcomes for all of our students. Before moving forward on this bond proposal, or reaching any conclusions on what or what not to include in the proposal, we want to hear from our parents and the community at large. We will hold community listening sessions on the dates and times below. Your feedback is important. We truly welcome everyone who is interested to join us and share your thoughts and opinions. If you are unable to attend, but would like to participate in this process, please visit www.brps.org and select the Community Input link to provide feedback. (https://www.brps.org/community-input/)
