    Bristol Warren Regional School District Students, Families, and Community, 

    Happy Fall season.  I would like to share my observations of the first few weeks of school, provide some thoughts about future career opportunities for our students, and invite you to join the district in an upcoming conversation called “Learning about the Future of Education in the Bristol Warren Regional School District.”  Understanding what our students are doing now, what they need to do in the future, and how we can collaborate to support them is critical to their individual success, the success of each of our families, and the towns of Bristol and Warren.

    As we finish the 6th week of the 2019-2020 school year, I am excited by the quality of work our students, teachers, and administrators are doing.  During my school visits, I have observed students reading, providing feedback to classmates about their writing, listened to music students have created in music lab, watched students race around the gym to popular music as a warm-up activity, measured the height of bouncing tennis balls as part of an experiment, watched a presentation by our 2019 Samsung “Solve for Tomorrow” state champion team, and countless other lessons.  The common denominator in these examples is the level of preparation and knowledge of our teachers, the purposeful design and implementation of ways to engage and help students to become active learners, and administrators working to lead and maintain great school culture.  

    We are all focused on ensuring that our students learn as much as possible so they are positioned for a great future.  For too long, in our country, schools and parents have thought that the only path to a great career and great earnings was through a four-year college degree.  It is still accurate that a four-year degree increases your chances of having a great career, but it is not the only way.  The Georgetown Center for Education and the Workforce, located at Georgetown University in Washington D.C., has research that shows many high wage jobs of the present and future will require some training after high school such as a certificate, certifications, licenses, college coursework, up to an Associates’ degree, but less than a four-year degree. Regardless of the direction a student and their parents choose, all BWRSD students must meet or exceed our graduation requirements to provide them with the greatest opportunity for success.

    Here is a link to a report that explains the three pathways students can take to achieve a great career with great earnings https://cew.georgetown.edu/cew-reports/3pathways/.

    A discussion about how to better prepare our students for their future will be held on November 5th at MHHS and November 6th at KMS.  Both presentations will be the same and held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  RSVP by clicking on one of the dates:  November 5th at MHHS or November 6th at KMS

     

    Sincerely, 

    Jonathan T. Brice, Ed.D.
    Interim Superintendent of Schools
    Bristol Warren Regional School District

  • A Message From the Superintendent:

    Bristol Warren Regional School District Students, Families, and Community,

    Welcome to the start of the 2019-2020 school year.  During the last month I have met with and listened to students, parents, community organizations, and elected officials who shared their hopes and concerns about our schools.  I have also visited with students at the Bristol Summer Camp, Warren Summer Camp, and read to students at the Child Opportunity Zone. Our young people are amazing and full of limitless potential.  We must harness their curiosity, intellect, passion, and dreams to prepare them for the future.  

    Based on my initial listening and learning conversations I want the district to establish the goal of becoming a Top 5 academic ranked school district in Rhode Island within five years (Top 5 in 5).  Our mission of engaging families and community partners in creating vibrant and adaptive learning environments that support all students in realizing their full potential as productive and successful members of society should also include becoming a Top 5 in 5 academic school district in Rhode Island.

    President Kennedy said, “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.” 

    John F. Kennedy Moon Speech - Rice Stadium, Houston, Texas  September 12, 1962

    Working to become a Top 5 in 5 academically ranked school district in Rhode Island will help us to organize, measure our energies and skills, and achieve our goal by 1.) creating and maintaining a positive school culture and climate for all students and staff, 2.) reflecting upon and improving teaching and learning in each classroom for each student daily, 3.) all staff engaging in a growth mindset about professional learning, 4.) creating systematic procedures to be used throughout the school district, 5.) enhancing customer service, transparency, and communication with parents, staff, and the community we serve.    

    Over the next week all schools have scheduled activities for incoming students and our school and district teams are busy with final preparations for a successful start of the school year.  We look forward to welcoming your student to school on September 3, 2019, and we look forward to a productive and positive school year.

    Jonathan Brice, Ed.D.

  • To the Bristol Warren Regional School District Community,
    I am pleased to introduce Dr. Jonathan Brice as our interim superintendent. Dr. Brice is a preK-12 leader with 26+ years of experience as a teacher, school administrator and executive in five large school districts in Maryland, Florida, and Delaware.  He served as Deputy Assistant Secretary at the U.S. Department of Education and was a founding director of a non-profit organization. His areas of responsibilities have included: alternative education, public information, research and assessment, special education, student services, supporting and evaluating school principals, and technology. Additionally, Dr. Brice has been an education consultant for organizations and school districts such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, and various school districts, and in February 2018 the New Rochelle Board of Education selected Dr. Brice as Chair of the Task-Force on Reducing Violence in the Lives of Children and Youth in New Rochelle, New York.

     

    Dr. Brice is excited to meet the BWRSD community and has shared his initial thoughts about his appointment.  “I am humbled by the opportunity to serve the students, staff, and community of the Bristol Warren Regional School District.  My initial focus will be on listening and learning about BWRSD, and collaborating and identifying measurable outcomes for the 2019-2020 school year.  Thank you to the school committee for your confidence and I look forward to meeting with the Bristol Warren Regional School Community on July 22, 2019.”
    We invite you to join us and our new interim superintendent for a Meet n’ Greet the evening of July 22nd, from 6 p.m.-7 p.m., prior to the regularly scheduled school committee meeting.  Refreshments will be provided. All are welcome!
    Sincerely,
    Erin Schofield,
    Chairperson
