Groundbreaking event held for BCS construction

January 17, 2019 – Groundbreaking for construction at Brooklyn Center Middle and High School STEAM took place on Thursday, January 17, 2019. Superintendent Dr. Carly Baker and BCS principal Josh Fraser took sledgehammers to a wall in the commons area of the building.

“This is an exciting time for the Brooklyn Center community,” Baker said. “I’m so thankful for our community’s support to modernize our buildings so students and staff can take learning to the next level.”

On November 7, 2017, district residents approved two school funding requests to support Brooklyn Center Community Schools’ students, staff and schools. The combined voter-approved funding from both requests will help the school district:

  • Improve instruction for all students in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM)
  • Expand teacher training to improve academic achievement
  • Increase academic opportunities for all students
  • Replace aging buses to ensure safe and reliable student transportation
  • Add classroom space for our increasing enrollment and growing pre-kindergarten program
  • Improve school safety by designing secure building entrances
  • Remodel existing classrooms to better support learning in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM)
  • Create separate areas for middle school and high school students at BCS
  • Address deferred maintenance at EBE and BCS

Thanks to the support of the BCCS community, we are able to continue our mission to equip every student with the knowledge, life skills, and global perspectives to contribute to society and respond to the needs of an ever-changing world.
