Hundreds attended Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) sixth annual Ed Talk held on Saturday, November 4, at the Hollywood Hills High School. Students, parents, teachers, staff, business leaders, elected officials and community members joined Broward School Board members and Broward County School Superintendent Robert W. Runcie to engage in dialogue around educational strategies and advancing the District’s Strategic Plan – and its goals of high-quality instruction, continuous improvement and effective communication.
Helping students each full potential
This year, the more than 400 participants participated in panel and group discussions centered around personalized learning, social and emotional life readiness, literacy and early learning, and reimagining middle years learning. The overarching focus is on helping all students reach their full potential.
In years past, Ed Talk community forums provided input and feedback to shape, update and recalibrate the District’s Strategic Plan. This year’s community forum focused on giving students every opportunity to broaden their horizons and their understanding of the world in which we live. Student participation during Ed Talk is a vital component to the robust discussions.
Engage our diverse community
“Ed Talk affords us the opportunity to engage our diverse community in rich and meaningful dialogue focused on helping our students succeed, both in school and throughout their lives,” said Superintendent Runcie. “I’m always inspired by the dedication of our hardworking teachers, staff and school leaders – and the excitement for learning by our students. Hearing directly from our students today about their educational experiences, and receiving the incredible feedback and support from the community, helps us ensure we are on the right track for preparing our students for their futures.”
