The 2019-2020 academic year will bring new opportunities to Bexley City Schools’ students, staff, and parents. Opportunities that will further our mission to engage, equip, and empower each student, each staff member, and each parent.
Our students will continue to be the center of our learning culture. They will benefit from an aligned curriculum, a staff that is working collaboratively on evidence-based instructional strategies K-12, which includes work from Harvard’s Project Zero, and new programming and supports in social/emotional learning and mental health. Bexley students will also benefit from the addition of a coordinator of experiential learning. This educator will connect our students to experiences outside the classroom in order to enhance the development of 21st-century skills such as communication, critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration. This focus on experiential learning will also support career exploration. We will also bring real-world experiences into our classrooms to impact the development of skills and mindsets that are necessary for today’s learners.
Our teachers work daily to provide an exceptional learning environment for each student, and this year, our teachers will benefit from the support and mentorship of instructional coaches. These instructional coaches at both the elementary and secondary levels will work alongside our teachers and with our administrators to support the implementation of aligned curriculum and instructional practices that engage, equip, and empower each student.
Parent Institute was launched in March 2019, and we will continue to provide education to our parents through multiple events over the course of the school year. We welcome our parents to suggests topics that are important to them so we can be responsive partners with our families to educate and develop our students.
The 2019-2020 academic year is going to be an outstanding year. We are committed to our vision of providing an exceptional education for today and tomorrow, and we look forward to the continued partnership and support of our community. Great things are happening in Bexley City Schools, and we are excited to share it with you.
