BASD-Summer work continues focus on early reading

As summer begins, most of us are daydreaming of pool parties, ice cream and summer vacation. But for the Bethlehem Board of School Directors, the theme of the summer is “Excellence Through Equity,” an idea repeated throughout the June 12 meeting of the curriculum committee.

While recognition was given for an excellent school year, the meeting focused on a continued commitment to students and families. This vision now reaches beyond the classroom, targeting family and socio-economic factors that greatly impact student achievement.
