Hundreds attend BCPS Ed Talk 2018/19 Community Forum

Recently, (Dec. 1, 2018) hundreds gathered from across the community to attend Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) seventh annual Ed Talk, which took place at Charles W. Flanagan High School in Pembroke Pines.

Students, parents, teachers, school and District staff, business leaders, elected officials, and community members joined School Board members and BCPS Superintendent Robert W. Runcie for discussions on important topics, including the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School commemoration planning, safety and security updates, District recovery and mental health, and the District’s Strategic Plan focus on college and career readiness.

“As we approach the one-year mark of what has been a heartbreaking year, we continue to focus on building strength as a community and finding ways to heal together,” said Superintendent Runcie. “We must work together to support our students, both academically and through social-emotional connections, to ensure they have the resources necessary to be successful in school and throughout their lives. It was wonderful to see such a diverse group of people come together today during Ed Talk, to share their experiences and feedback with us.”
