    Board Briefs – May 17, 2018 

    • First line of business was recognizing many BHS students and our 15 district retirees for the 2017-18 school year.  As Ms. Kennedy pointed out, together these 15 folks totaled more than 300 years of service to Bremerton School District and our students. Congratulations to these students as they graduate and begin new plans for their lives, and also to these dedicated staff (who have spent their lives working with these same students and many, many more), as they embark on this new and exciting journey called retirement.

    • Ms. Elise Erickson and several of her French class students thanked the Board for the opportunity to travel to Paris, France in April, and shared more about the experience and what it personally meant to them.  

    • The Consent Agenda included the Agreement with Rice Fergus Miller to provide design work to relocate the Central Kitchen to the Mountain View Middle School site. 

    • Next year, we will see a change in meal prices.  The only difference in pricing is that the District will no longer provide free breakfasts to ALL students but only to those eligible for free or reduced lunch.  This comes after the recent OSPI Administrative Review of our program.  Elementary breakfasts will be provided to paying students for $1.95.  

    • Remember these upcoming Graduation Dates:  
      • Renaissance High School on May 31, 2018, 7:00 pm
      • Bremerton High School on June 8, 2018, 7:00 pm

    Animated Video - Role of a School Board  

    The role of the school board is frequently misunderstood by citizens.  And students often do not fully understand the impact that the Board may have on their future.  This animated video, which won an award in NSPRA's (National School Public Relations Association) 2016 Electronic Media competition, takes a crack at explaining the role of the Board to an elementary student.  Thanks to the Texas Assn. of School Boards for providing the leadership to explain the role of today's school board. 


    Be Involved
    One of the best ways to stay informed of what's happening in public education in your community and to have a voice in it, is to attend a meeting of your local school board.  Our Board welcomes you at its meetings. If you would like to bring something to the attention of the directors, there is a public comment period at the beginning of each regular meeting where visitors may make presentations lasting up to three minutes. Provided near the entrance, you will find forms, “Request to Address The Board of Directors;” please complete this form and give to Ms. Cossack before the Board meeting if you wish to provide comments. You may also comment prior to Board action on any specific action agenda item, by simply raising your hand during Board discussion.  Comments on agenda items are also limited to three minutes. You may also write, email, or telephone your school board directors to make your opinions known. 


    Please note that discussions regarding individual staff or students are not appropriate for a public meeting. Please contact the Superintendent regarding these complaint procedures.
