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.

STRIVE FOR UNDER FIVE: A new attendance initiative called, Strive for Under Five, is being rolled out at Hampstead Hill Academy, Wolfe Street Academy, City Springs Elementary / Middle, Patterson Park Public Charter School, and Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/Middle School. The goal of the program is to encourage students to miss less than five days during the school year and improve attendance in Southeast Baltimore schools. Each month, students will receive a certificate if they achieve perfect attendance. With this certificate, they will earn incentives from local businesses. Students can redeem their incentives by bringing their certificate to the designated businesses or locations, which will be listed on the back of their certificate. The incentives will include items such as a free kid’s meal or beverage, free books, a 20% off coupon, buy one get one free offers, etc. Each student will receive a magnet that provides reminders and strategies for getting to school every day on-time, and a chart each month that will help them track their attendance. ...
