Educational Model

Every Child Can Learn

We believe that if the child hasn’t learned, the teacher hasn’t taught properly. When teachers have effective tools, proper training, and ongoing support, they can prepare every child for success in college, career, and life.

Education fads come and go; but BCP focuses on identifying and implementing proven strategies. We have stayed true to our principles and held onto the programs that work. Over the past two decades, we have identified or created a variety of effective educational programs—put them into practice and refined them.

We value high-quality teaching over high-stakes testing. Research shows that high-stakes testing does not support great teaching. Instead, it often leads to a narrowing of the curriculum; teaching to tests, and, in some cases, cheating by educators. This deprives children of the rich education they deserve.

 

Safe schools. Classroom management is one of the biggest challenges facing new teachers. BCP Schools use CHAMPS, a program that helps teachers use a proactive and positive plan to teach students how to meet expectations in school. BCP also supports all teachers with a consistent development program that includes a summer training institute, regular in-class, and a “novice teacher think tank.”

We believe in honest, rigorous assessment. The Direct Instruction reading and language arts programs assess students every five to 10 lessons to make sure they are on track. BCP leadership and school-based academic coaches meet weekly to pour over student data to determine where additional support may be needed and to identify opportunities for acceleration. The Northwest Evaluation Association’s Measures of Academic Progress is administered at least twice a year to measure and analyze student growth.
