Community Partnership Committee

The Community Partnership Committee launched during the 2023-24 school year for the Bloomfield Hills Schools Board of Education. The BHS Board promoted this opportunity as a way for our community to engage and be involved in positively impacting our school district.

The second Community Partnership Committee meeting will be held in February 2024

December 2023 Update 

The first Community Partnership Committee (CPC) meeting was held on Monday, December 18th. This meeting was facilitated by a third party facilitator and included members of the CPC, along with two Board members.

The dialogue in the breakout groups had excellent perspectives that lend to continued conversations, deeper analysis, and the opportunity to explore areas of improvement. The topic of academics was the topic with the most interest and will be explored in more detail at the next CPC meeting.

November 2023 

The application window has closed for the CPC. There was an overwhelming number of community members who responded to the Board’s request to participate. Thank you to all who took the time to submit their application and offer their time to be a part of such an exciting and important initiative.

The Board trustees leading the CPC reviewed all applicants. While the trustees saw so many differences in the applications, one thing was evident: a desire to help the community grow and improve the lives of BHS students. Ultimately, it was decided that the benefit of utilizing the many talents of a willing group would ensure the CPC has many helping hands to do challenging work and diverse voices to bring perspective into meaningful discussions. 

The first meeting of the Community Partnership Committee will be held in December 2023.
