In order to obtain feedback from stakeholders, the Department of Special Education (DSE) has created a Staffing Plan Survey. The Special Education Staffing Plan as well as the survey can be found on the Department of Special Education’s public internet site. The survey can also be accessed on through this Smartsheet link. Thank you for your feedback!

What is Parent University?

Parent University is offered through the BCPS Office of Family and Community Engagement, which we affectionately call FACE! We provide tools and resources to BPCS families to support learning at home. In the past, before social-distancing, one of the ways we offered these resources was through in-person workshops hosted by community members and schools. We also have a large collection of online resources that are available as we navigate through this incredibly unique time in our lives. We hope you enjoy what we have to share.
