Fall Open House 2017 - Supporting BPS students beyond school and launching the college, career and life readiness definition
The 2017 edition of the BPS Fall open house highlighted the role of the district to connect students and families to the supports and opportunities available to them throughout the city. The open house was also an opportunity to showcase the citywide definition of college, career and life readiness which can be found here.
We designed an interactive open house that took place on October 28, 2017. BPS facilitated private conversations with between students, families and partners from higher education, trade groups, private industry, community organizations, and much more. Throughout the Bolling building, seminars and workshops took place on topics such as first time home buying, resume / profile building, progress on BuildBPS, and much more. Boston's Chief of Education, Rahn Dorsey, moderated a keynote lunch on STEM education and the tech industry in Boston with Superintendent Chang, Silver McDonald from LEGO Education, Mohamad Ali from Carbonite, and Ann Klee, head of the GE foundation. The day ended with a panel discussion led by D'Wayne Edwards of PENSOLE, with leaders in the footwear design industry from locally based brands such as Reebok, Clarks, Converse and Puma.
