SPARK's new series for young professionals interested in education kicks off with a word from Boston Public Schools' new superintendent.
It’s school registration season, and SPARK Boston’s newest program, the Back to School event series, is kicking off with a conversation with the Superintendent of Boston Public Schools, Mary Skipper. Superintendent Skipper began this role in BPS in Fall 2022, and previously served as the Superintendent of Somerville Public Schools. Join us for a moderated discussion with the Superintendent to learn about her perspectives on her first school year in charge, get an early look at her vision for the future of BPS, and understand how she and her team plan to improve the district for families across Boston.
This first event will be fully virtual. Please note that this conversation will be both recorded and streamed in order to share learnings and information with those who cannot join. Come join us for this exciting conversation!
SPARK's Back to School series seeks to invite young and emerging professionals into conversations around the realities and possibilities that exist within Boston's education ecosystem, educate individuals on how to navigate the complicated education landscape, and activate individuals to share their current experiences and consider potential solutions to challenges. This series should be especially informative for parents or expectant parents of young children who want to better understand the complex educational ecosystem in Boston, but all are welcome to attend (especially 20- to 35-year-old City of Boston residents).
The Zoom link for this event will only be provided to registered guests, so be sure to reserve your spot today!
