Broward County Public Schools Hosts Its Annual Ed Talk Community Forum

Wednesday, January 13, 2016
Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) fourth annual Ed Talk community forum takes place on Saturday, January 23, 2016, from 9 a.m. – noon, at the Signature Grand in Davie. Everyone interested in the future of BCPS is encouraged to attend this free event.

Last year, the community forum engaged a cross-section of nearly 400 members of the community in discussions focused on shaping the priorities of the District, as well as creating and maintaining a world-class school system in Broward County.

This year, Ed Talk is designed to inform and engage the community in discussions to develop and update educational strategies, which will advance the three core components of the District’s Strategic Plan – high-quality instruction, continuous improvement and effective communication. Community input and feedback are used to continue the District's vision and commitment to educating today’s students to succeed in tomorrow’s world.

“Ed Talk is a unique opportunity for our entire community to come together with the District to talk about the future of our schools and students,” said Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie. “This community forum has become an important part of our process for sharing information and engaging our community, as we move the District forward – everyone’s voice is important.”
