Brooklyn School for Career Development Vision
BSCD is committed to a rich and challenging tradition of excellence where every decision is made with the students’ best interest in mind. We recognize the value of all stakeholders in the school community. Therefore, we foster a collaborative partnership among parents, students, community members, and the school. We are dedicated to making a positive impact on our dynamic and ever- changing world. At BSCD, all students are empowered to achieve success.
Having a shared vision is meaningless unless we, as administrators, embrace, model, and pursue it. In my five years as Assistant Principal at 753K Brooklyn School for Career Development (BSCD), I have lived this vision. Assessing our students' interests has allowed us to develop partnerships with BJ's, Racises, Buffalo Wild Wings, Marshalls, Appleby's, and Strong Place for Hope, which have given our students opportunities outside of the school building in growing their independence and honing their work skills. Our standardized students have been given the tools necessary to meet their academic goals and graduate with a local or Regents diploma. Our Mission and Core Beliefs are aligned with putting our students first. We recognize the value of parental engagement, especially during the pandemic in which many parents have opted for hybrid learning. This is a time of uncertainty for our students, families, and staff. Social-Emotional Learning is paramount in making them feel valued, respected, and heard.
