In District Public Schools and Charter School Cooperation
BLE is committed to working with all types of schools to improve educational outcomes for students in Boston. Through this work they have supported BPS initiatives, increasing the number of high quality charter schools, as well as developing a school council that will bring the best thinking from a cross spectrum of leaders in the education and business sector. BLE is working to ensure that these schools within the BPS and independent public charter school sectors are successful by encouraging the business community to provide financial, political, and human capital support.
Council of Schools
BLE is in the process of developing a Council of Schools that would include active and engaged business and civic leaders throughout the community who are dedicated to engaging with high quality schools. To learn more about the initiative please click the link below.
