New Website Coming!

Over the past couple of months, we have been redesigning our district web site. We wanted a fresh design that makes it easy for you to find the information you need while also highlighting the many exciting opportunities in our schools. We also recognized that more users are viewing our site on mobile devices, so we wanted to create a site that was optimized for all platforms.

We will be making this transition over the weekend, so the website will be down temporarily. When it returns, you will see our new design. Please take a bit of time to look for the things you always use. Hopefully, you will find it user friendly as well as informative. Go Blackhawks!

BHS Choir Student Sings Her Way to Nashville


Jordan Parker from Brandon High School was recently selected for the 2014 NAfME All-National Honor Mixed Choir Ensemble. To be selected for this All-National program, students had to be members of All-State Honors Choirs. High school students from across the United States auditioned for the NAfME All-National Honor Ensembles this summer. Auditions were submitted via a video audition from All-State repertoire. Acceptance into this exclusive group was based on video audition through NAfME (National Association for Music Education), current All-State High School Honors Choir Membership, current membership in the school's choral program and director endorsement. Jordan Parker from Brandon High School was one of two students selected from the state of Michigan.

BFIS Students Win Robotics Award

Members of the BFIS First Robotics Lego League, "The RoboHawks," won the prestigious Judge's Award in a competition this past weekend. The students were competing at a competition at Carman-Ainsworth. The presenter of the award described the Judge's Award as follows: "Many high quality teams do not fit the mold for an existing award, but nonetheless deserve one.  Some teams have a story that profoundly sets them apart in a unique way.  Sometimes a given award is so close that the judges want to recognize a team's achievement.  This award gives the judges the freedom to recognize the most remarkable team for which a standard award does not exist."

Congratulations RoboHawks on winning this award and good luck as you prepare for your next competition on November 8th!

Superintendent Evaluation

As the Brandon School District works to be the best that it can be, continued feedback from those that we serve is essential to our efforts. In this spirit, I am asking for your participation in a 360 feedback survey on my performance as Superintendent for your district. While I know that I have only officially been working as your Superintendent for four months now, I have enjoyed the opportunity of working with so many of you since March of last year.

If you are willing, I would greatly appreciate your participation in this confidential feedback survey. At absolutely no cost to the district, Larry Lobert and Associates has designed this feedback tool and will be the administrator of the survey. This confidential feedback will be provided to our Board of Education as they prepare to conduct my 2014 evaluation.

Instructions:
  1. Click on the following link: Superintendent Evaluation
  2. Enter your e-mail address (your participation is completely confidential...the e-mail is to ensure one survey per person)
  3. Enter the password: Outlaw1234
  4. Simply click on the answers that seem the most appropriate
  5. The survey is now open and will not close until November 10th at 4:00 p.m.
It is my hope to receive feedback from as many Brandon parents, students, teachers, administrators and support staff as part of this first evaluation. This feedback will be very important to me as I work to serve all of you the best that I can. It is also my hope to have as many participants as possible as this is a pilot for a model that could be used in the future as we gather this important feedback.

I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to read this and for considering participation in this survey.

Sincerely,

Matt Outlaw
Superintendent of Schools
Brandon School District
