Superintendent Brian T. Binggeli, calling for a new, shared vision of education, initiated a strategic planning process that involved a renewed fundamental connection between the Florida Department of Education, The School Board of Brevard County, and the individual Brevard Public Schools to define what education should be and would be in the future.
In 2014-15, more than 45 states, including Florida, will move to national education standards and assessments that are built around the Common Core Standards. The Common Core will demand more from our students and they must be prepared to tackle the new material and tougher assessments that will measure how well they learn it.
Dr. Binggeli believes that Brevard Public Schools is at a crossroads. Because of the challenges of changing student/community demographics, the new technology-rich pervasive learning that impacts teaching, and the complex role of education in our society today, Superintendent Binggeli set Brevard on a year-long development of a strategic plan that incorporates many of the state’s educational objectives to ensure the best access and opportunities for Brevard’s students, while also focusing on Brevard specific goals, thus increasing educator effectiveness, raising standards, and deepening the level of district efficiencies.
This new strategic plan is currently being developed. Therefore, until it receives Board approval, the district will continue to implement the 2011-2012 Strategic Plan.
