Safety a Top Priority for New Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent
Dr. Myriam Yarbrough, first-year superintendent of Baltimore County Public Schools, shared her back-to-school goals with principals and key staff last Friday.
The Woodlawn High School band helped set the stage for Myriam Yarbrough's back-to-school message to principals and other key staff members.
"This moment if not about me; I am one person. This moment is much bigger than me. It is about us and what we will do with our students across Team BCPS," Dr. Yarbrough said.
Her focus, in part, is to engage, empower and excel, and do so with students in mind.
"Your recipe, your two things have to be tailor-made based on the students in your building, based on your staff and based on your data," Dr. Yarbrough said.
Besides academics, the new superintendent said safety and climate are also among her top priorities.
"It's not going to be perfect. Situations are going to change, needs are going to arise, so we need to monitor and we need to adjust. It's OK to shift; that's what's going to yield positive results," Yarbrough said.
She's confident those results will help set the pace for a new school year.
