ECPS continues Commission on Educational Equity

The BRC is a diverse group of Edgecombe County stakeholders tasked with leading an ongoing conversation in the community about our collective vision for ECPS graduates. 

“The Commission works in collaboration with school and district leaders to reimagine the future of education in Edgecombe County, so that all students are able to realize their dreams in this rapidly changing world,” said Dr. Valerie Bridges, ECPS Superintendent.

The commission members include students, parents, teachers, principals, and board of education members. Business, faith-based, and non-profit leaders are also members of the BRC, in addition to General Assembly representatives.

“In an effort to engage the community in a meaningful conversation about our collective vision for ECPS graduates, we are holding a series of Town Hall Meetings in schools throughout our district,” said Erin Swanson, ECPS Director of Innovation.

Community members are invited to attend the following school-based meetings:

  • Tuesday, December 5, 2017 – Tarboro High School – Topic: What is a purposeful life?
  • Tuesday, March 13, 2018 – North Edgecombe High School – Topic: What is the future of work?
  • Tuesday, May 15, 2018 – SouthWest Edgecombe High School – Topic: What is the future of Edgecombe County?

All meetings will be held from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. The meetings will begin with a panel discussion and will be followed by a “Community Café” discussion to solicit input from attendees.
