BSD's New Logo, Vision and Mission Statements
Dear Burlingame School District Community,
The 2015-2016 School Year is off to a great start! In the spring of 2015, with the help of community members, the Board of Trustees requested staff embark on a journey to “refresh BSD’s identity.” The purpose of the refresh was to clearly represent BSD’s mission and character and to foster community pride in our schools. Throughout the process teachers, parents and administrators were surveyed and interviewed to capture the essence of who we are as a community. Three very important descriptions resulted from the communications:
Our new Vision and Mission Statements are:
"Challenging the leaders, thinkers, and creators of tomorrow"
"Engage our community to build resilient, curious, compassionate, problem-solvers who are prepared for their future"
The identity refresh included a new logo. The survey results from the community set the tone and personality for the new logo design. We set out to find a warm, welcoming, sophisticated yet youthful image. The Board of Trustees wanted the logo to represent the down to earth nature of the Burlingame Community yet symbolize our high achieving school district. The result is a logo that is optimistic, student and community centered and is easily recognizable. Please celebrate our new Vision, Mission and logo as we welcome in the 2015-2016 school year!
Maggie MacIsaac, Superintendent

The Board of Trustees received an update on the District's Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Plan. BSD is in the process of developing the district's TK-8 VAPA plan and will have a formal presentation to the Board at the September 8th meeting.
Our Visual and Performing Art Plan is taking shape and we are kicking off our 1st year of implementation with our Summer Institute on Tuesday, August 25th and Wednesday, August 26th with Arts Ed Matters consultants. Approximately 75 teachers will be attending for two full days of learning about the Integrated Arts model in the visual and performing arts.
Day one will be an introduction to theater and the visual arts and learning the concept of Making Learning Visible (MLV) with learning walls which are examples of student learning and art integration.
Our District will be working throughout this school year with two Arts Integrated Specialists (or AIS's) from Arts Ed Matters. They will be working directly with our administrators and teachers, as well as with our parent community. The district will receive 25 hours a month of support with modeling lessons, providing on-site professional development. They will assist in the development of curriculum-based on the National Standards for Art Education which connect with the Common Core English Language Arts and Math standards. Additionally, they will be supporting site VAPA meetings, as well as attending the district VAPA committee meetings.
