This May, graduate students from Binghamton University will be attending school events to ask parents/caretakers and students what they think about the district and about how we can work together to make BCSD the district of choice in the region. Refreshments will be provided at each of these Community Conversations. If you are attending one of these events, please take a moment and speak to one of the BU students about the survey. It’s a great opportunity for you to share your opinions and to help the district make positive changes.
