Govans Elementary

Message from BCP President

Dear Govans Elementary School Community:

After a comprehensive search, the Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP) is excited to announce that Bernarda Kwaw will serve as Principal of Govans Elementary School beginning in July 2018. Ms. Kwaw will take over leadership of the school from our beloved retiring principal, Linda Taylor.

We have tremendous confidence in and respect for Ms. Kwaw. She has been an outstanding teacher, instructional coach, and assistant principal at a BCP school. Her children attended a BCP school, and she served briefly on the BCP board of directors until assuming the AP position at Govans in 2015.

BCP selected Ms. Kwaw after conducting a thorough principal selection process. Throughout May and June, a search committee comprised of two parents (one of whom is a BCP board member and a leader of the York Road Partnership), two staff members, the Community School Director, a long-serving BCP principal, and the president and CEO of BCP interviewed qualified candidates. BCP also surveyed the faculty to ascertain what qualities the staff hoped to see in their next leader. After extensive interviews and discussions, the search committee enthusiastically selected Ms. Kwaw.

Ms. Kwaw is well-respected by the current staff at Govans, and had the endorsement of the retiring principal, Linda Taylor. She demonstrated great success in her prior roles, and more importantly, shares a vision for Govans that will serve it well as the school transitions over the next few years into its new 21st Century school building.

BCP will be scheduling a number of community events this summer so that families, neighbors, and other friends of Govans can meet Ms. Kwaw. If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to e-mail me at bcpinfo@baltimorecp.org.
