BAPS High School Configuration Study
As our district continues to grow, we must plan for the future and an important part of that planning is the configuration of our high school. In order to ensure a successful outcome, the Broken Arrow Board of Education is commissioning a high school configuration study which will be conducted from July 1, 2015 through May 30, 2017. During this time, a steering committee is gathering many types of data and evaluating potential configurations.
It is important to understand that this study is about much more than evaluating if and when to divide our current high school. It is about developing a long-term plan for the next decade and beyond to accommodate our growing student population in grades 9-12.
An important part of this process is to keep our patrons informed, and to provide parents, students, staff, alumni and community members with an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. Rest assured that we will provide regular updates about the progress of the study as well as opportunities for stakeholder input. This is your community and building consensus among everyone impacted by this decision is essential.
At the conclusion of the study, the steering committee will present to the board a comprehensive road map which has milestones for managing student population growth at various high school sites. This road map will allow the district to effectively plan our financial and human resources needed for new buildings and programs.
With a district mantra of 100 percent literacy, engagement and graduation, our ultimate goal is to provide every student with opportunities for success. We encourage you to stay informed and participate in the process so that together, we can do what is best for the students of Broken Arrow.
