We are looking for volunteers to be on the 2018 Blueprint Planning Committee. The Blueprint is our District’s strategic plan. It is the backbone for all of the District’s annual growth and improvement efforts and helps us to determine priorities for District resources and attention.
We just launched a tool called Thoughtexchange to begin an online learning process. We want to better understand what you think we do well, where we can improve, and what we might be missing. By answering these questions, you will contribute to the Brighton Blueprint — focusing in our efforts to continuously grow, improve, and adapt to meet the ever changing needs of our students and our community.
