BCD's Coronavirus Update

Bcd's 2020-21 planning process

How we planned:

BCD faculty and staff worked diligently to design our return to in-person learning for Fall 2020. We established BCD Together, an effort within which we have convened several task forces – Academic, Health and Safety, Finance, Infrastructure: Facilities and Technology, and Well-Being – under the umbrella of a unified Nerve Center (BCD’s School Leadership Team) to work through various scenarios and models for next fall. We actively considered state, local, and national guidance knowing that best practice will likely come from a combination of sources. Please note that our primary goal was to teach every student, on campus, every day. With this goal in mind, we are focused on the following objectives:

Fully deliver on our mission throughout the COVID environment
  • Focus on health and safety - follow best practice guidance for a return to campus/in-person learning
  • Enhance the sense of community among all constituents, students, families, faculty and staff
  • Preserve our financial future
  • Communicate our plan effectively among and across various committees and constituents
