Dear BASD Parents and Community Members,

As the 2014-2015 school year quickly draws near, we are excited to strengthen our educational programming through the implementation of a full day kindergarten program for all students in the 2015-2016 school year.

Our highly successful students, many of who go on to attend elite universities, take full advantage of the wonderful opportunities available through our district's "Roadmap to Educational Excellence". Please see for yourself the opportunities available to students by viewing three short videos found on YouTube. Our Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is an outstanding engineering program that BASD high school students are offered as elective courses. View a short video on PLTW.

I encourage you to stay abreast of district news and events via Twitter (@basdsupt and @basdjacksilva) and through our district email group. You can sign up for the district email group here.

We are committed to serving the needs of each child so that all students achieve their dreams.

Best wishes for a enjoyable and relaxing summer!


Joseph J. Roy, Ed.D
Superintendent of Schools
