Dear BCIT Families:

Summer vacation is more than halfway over, and back-to-school time is quickly approaching. Staff and administrators have been working diligently to ensure that when our students return to school, resources are in place to support teaching and learning. BCIT has received great press over the past few months, which is indicative of the many enhancements we have made to our programs and operations, resulting in one of the largest freshman classes on record. The transformation is exciting and the word is now out. Please see my blog or our website for more information.

We are proud of our major renovation to the Medford cafeteria area and culinary program. We apologize that the project will not be complete until after the start of the school year, but the upgrades are welcomed enhancements. We are continuing to improve the integration of technology into classroom instruction while maintaining and improving facilities and security. To this end, our administrative team was trained in the ALICE Responsive Security training during the summer along with other districts to enhance our proactive responses to intruders and potential active shooters among other security drills to enhance minimal impact to students and staff. We continue to ramp up our presence on social media and hope that our students and parents are seeing a real difference. We just pushed out our first online alumni survey and intend to select our first Hall of Fame for Lifetime Achievement recipients to capture the legacy of many of our alumni and community supporters. Last, I am proud of the progress we are making in our Literacy for Life Program and the various interventions taken to support our ongoing efforts to promote desired achievement results. Congratulations!

The first day of school for students is Wednesday, September 5, 2018.

Important information may be found on our district website including:

 The District Calendar

 The BCIT Parent/Student Handbook

 Information regarding emergency school closings and delays is in the student handbook

 Information regarding student lunches on each campus website

 District Policies

 Information regarding the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act for students.

We wish everyone a pleasant remainder of the summer, and hope you join in our enthusiasm for another great year of learning. Through the ongoing support of the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders and Board of Education, we look forward to continuing to pursue our shared mission to prepare adolescents and adults of Burlington County to enter the labor market, serve our country in the military, and/or continue their education.
