Congratulations to our Class of 2017 Valedictorians!⠀Get to a few of them in this video as they share their stories and dreams.
In in the wake of last weekend’s violent events in Charlottesville, Va., and Monday’s desecration of the New England Holocaust Memorial, we want all of our families to know that the Boston Public Schools stands firmly with Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Boston residents in rejecting the messages of those who preach hatred and intolerance and who seek to divide, rather than unify, the people of this great country.
Boston Public Schools (BPS) high school seniors who studied in the High School Summer Review Program will participate in four graduation ceremonies between August 21-August 24. This year, BPS redesigned the High School Summer Review from occurring at a single site to seven locations across the city to provide easier access for students.
Currently, the Commonwealth provides transition funding to cities for charter growth. The Commonwealth reimburses cities 100% the first year, with partial funding for five additional years. However, over the past four years, the Commonwealth has not fully funded the reimbursement, leading to a $74M loss in Boston alone. S.236 would replace the broken charter reimbursement model with a new three year transition funding system.
The Boston Public Schools is proud to announce that a team of analytics and optimization experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has won the first-ever BPS Transportation Challenge by developing a computer-based model that more efficiently routes school buses, generating potentially millions of dollars in cost savings that will be put back into classrooms.
As the birthplace of public education in this nation, the Boston Public Schools is committed to transforming the lives of all children through exemplary teaching in a world-class system of innovative and welcoming schools. We partner with the community, families and students to develop within every learner the knowledge, skill, and character to excel in college, career, and life.
