Welcome to Baltimore County Public Schools and Team BCPS. We are happy to have you as our guest and introduce you to the exciting educational opportunities our students enjoy every day.
Baltimore County Public Schools is guided by Blueprint 2.0 and our Theory of Action, which holds at its core the promise of globally competitive students from all Baltimore County High Schools. The Theory of Action drives our work through our Students and Teachers Accessing Tomorrow (S.T.A.T.) and World Language Acquisition (WLA) programs and ensures that students learn in a digitally rich 1:1 environment.
We have embarked on a thorough five year curriculum review process with a focus on learner-centered environments with custom and personalized opportunities for all students. A strong emphasis on high quality professional development for teachers supports these new teaching and learning opportunities and is illustrated in our Learner-Centered Professional Learning Tool included in this packet.
In our classrooms, you will notice that instructional expectations are based on the Teaching and Learning Framework. The Framework places the globally competitive graduate at the center surrounded by core values related to curriculum expectations, teacher behaviors, and essential skills we expect all our graduates to possess. The Teaching and Learning Framework is included in this packet for your visit today.
As you visit our schools today, I encourage you to engage with our students and staff to truly hear and feel the impact of our teaching and learning transformation. I am confident that by the end of your visit you will feel as excited as we are about the level of instruction, learning, enthusiasm, and passion exhibited by our students and teachers.
Our success is the result of all Team BCPS stakeholders sharing a common vision for what we expect for our students and our schools. Thank you for joining us today and I hope you enjoy your visit.
