BCS Recovery Program Begins

With some adjustments made as it launches, the Post Pandemic Recovery Program at Brookfield Central School has started.


BCS Board of Education members received an update on the plan at last week’s meeting.


Principal Carrie Smith is working with the Response To Intervention team on what areas to address in the 2022-23 school year.


BCS is taking a more pro-active approach to providing special services, such as speech and physical therapy, to all students with the goal of reducing the need for special education services. This goal is also being addressed for RTI services.


Some work will be done this summer with faculty to look at reducing the number of students in special education and using community resources to assist them.


Raising the Banner to Greatness 4.0 will also be defined this summer with methods for next year. BCS did return to Project Based Learning this spring, with the goal of doing more hands-on learning across all curriculum areas next year.


From the work that has been completed thus far, it was determined students need additional support in several social-emotional areas. To help address student needs, BCS brought the following assemblies in April and May: The Madison County Council on Alcoholism & Substance Abuse and, Online Predators and Social Media Safety.


The District also established a partnership with the Madison County Rural Health Council.
