BPS Connect

What is BPS Connect?

BPS Connect is our Community Partnership Program. Through the BPS Connect program businesses, organizations and alumni are partnered with schools, classrooms and departments to assist or develop engaging educational experiences. The partnership program is designed to be ongoing and mutually beneficial.

BPS Connect Mission Statement

To develop partnerships that shape our future through engagement, innovation, and a culture of belonging

Partnerships Structure

BPS Connect business/school partnerships are all unique - based on the participating business, their available resources and the school or department they are partnered with. Length of time commitment, amount of resources, and services provided will vary and will be determined by building principals, teachers or departments, the participating business, and district personnel.


All BPS Schools and any school-appropriate business or organization may participate. Partnerships can be developed with the entire district, a specific school, or an individual department or classroom. The main requirement for a business is that they want to help provide an excellent education for our students.
