Join the Student Feedback Working Group
The BTU seeks three teachers to serve on a working group on Student Feedback in the evaluation system. The group, composed of students, teachers, and BPS administrators will review the first year of implementation, recommend improvements, and plan professional development to support the process in the future. Meetings will be held on Monday evenings (May 20 and June 10; future meetings TBD). Please email email@example.com if you are interested.

Upon completion, fellows earn their initial license in Special Education (Moderate Disabilities) or in English as a Second Language (either of these is available with the option of dual licensure in Elementary). Apply or email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
