Renew [Ed] Program
The Renew [Ed] program is day programming within the BPS student supports that is reserved for students who demonstrate a need for more individualized services after having first received other interventions/supports. Often these students are some of our most at-risk students within the secondary schools, donations to this program will assist support staff with funding to develop personalized incentives for these students to achieve their goals and empower them to thrive within BPS.
The expansion of Day Programming under the auspices of the Renew[Ed] team will help to prevent students from falling through the cracks. The ultimate goal is that students who participate in this program are able to complete high school, find employment, receive post-secondary education, and thrive as community members.
As a reminder, all donations provided to the BPS Foundation are tax-deductible.
More information on the Renew [Ed] program
Renew[Ed] is a flexible, person-centered planning and support service driven by each student’s expressed needs, interests, and goals. The program has been intentionally designed to foster competence by providing educational and career-related experiences in a supportive environment. The impetus for this program is to ensure that students are provided with the opportunities necessary to excel, in alignment with the district’s Mission of “empowering every learner to thrive.”
Renew[Ed] will operate out of Hughes Educational Center; however, it is important to note that students continue to receive support from their home school in collaboration with Day Program staff. This “wrap-around” approach ensures that students receive support from a multitude of sources as needed, including teachers, social workers, specialists, behavior technicians, instructional assistants, and co-facilitators. Renew[ed] is not a school – students in the program remain enrolled at their home school – but rather operates as an extension of each student’s school, providing more robust resources than may be found in a conventional classroom setting.
