BCSD Celebrates BOE

BCSD Celebrates School Board Members
Posted on 10/19/2021
The Binghamton City School District celebrated its Board of Education with an annual breakfast Tuesday morning, in observance of National School Board Recognition Week. School board members are elected representatives, who volunteer their time with the ultimate goal of supporting the district and increasing student achievement.

School board members and administrators gathered at Ben Franklin Elementary School, where the group ate breakfast and enjoyed student musical performances. The children performed vocal and percussion selections that they recently learned during Hispanic Heritage Month. Ben Franklin student ambassadors presented board members with handmade gifts of student artwork. BCSD Superintendent Dr. Tonia Thompson closed the celebration with words of gratitude.

"Being a school board member is a major commitment, and the importance of this role cannot be overstated. All year round, our board members give their time and expertise to ensuring that Binghamton students have the best possible educational experience," Thompson said. "Their care and advisement help guide our work as we strive to educate, empower, and challenge every child in our district."

Our board members bring a wonderfully diverse set of talents and experiences to the district. Some of our board members are parents, others are alumni, and some have even worked in our district. Regardless of their connection to our schools, all of them are passionate and dedicated to our district’s students and schools.

We extend our deepest thanks and appreciation to our BCSD board members:

Vice President - Steve Seepersaud
