South Florida Times - - METRO -

HOL­LY­WOOD, Fla. – Hun­dreds at­tended Broward County Pub­lic Schools (BCPS) sixth an­nual Ed Talk held Satur­day, Novem­ber 4, at Hol­ly­wood Hills High School.

Stu­dents, par­ents, teach­ers, staff, busi­ness lead­ers, elected of­fi­cials and com­mu­nity mem­bers joined School Board mem­bers and BCPS 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.

This year, more than 400 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.

The com­mu­nity forum fo­cused on giv­ing stu­dents ever y op­por­tu­nity to broaden their hor izons and their un­der­stand­ing of the world in which we live.

Stu­dent par­tic­i­pa­tion dur­ing Ed Talk is a vi­tal com­po­nent to the ro­bust dis­cus­sions.

“Ed Talk af­fords us the op­por­tu­nity to en­gage our di­verse com­mu­nity in rich and mean­ing­ful di­a­logue f ocused 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 lear ning by our stu­dents. Hear ing di­rectly from our stu­dents to­day about their ed­u­ca­tional ex­per iences, and re­ceiv­ing the in­cred­i­ble f eed­back and sup­port from the com­mu­nity, helps us en­sure we are on the right track for pre­par­ing our stu­dents f or their fu­tures.”
