  • “What do we want our graduates to know, be able to do, and be like?”

    To Watch Our Video, Click Here

    This is a simple but powerful question as we prepare our students for life after graduation from the Berlin Brothersvalley School District. This question involves having a clear vision of what learning is required for students and an understanding of what will prepare them for an ever changing world of work and life in the future.

    In addition, we need to think about how we judge the success of the school district through the successes of our students (now adults) who have used the learning tools provided in the Berlin Brothersvalley School District to live a productive and fulfilling life.

    We selected a variety of people from the community to reflect on these questions and provide their perspective. Our interviewees include: Mrs. Margie Zorn, Mr. Larry Philip, Mr. Justin VanGilder, Mr. Brian Slope, Mrs. Cathy Webreck, Senator Pat Stefano and Mr. Scott Etris.

    Thanks to our outstanding student videographers for their time and expertise in producing a quality work for our community. Creed Smith, Ryan Sell and Heather Thomas.

School Safety

  • Dear Berlin Brothersvalley Community,

    In recent weeks, our nation has experienced heart wrenching and physically devastating violence. We want to acknowledge the toll that these events have taken on schools across the country. In the wake of these events, we want to reassure you that BBSD continues to provide a safe environment for our children to learn.

    BBSD is vigilant in our efforts to ensure our schools are safe. We have a detailed emergency operations plan that lays out specific plans and responses related to prevention & mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. We conduct regular drills that provide practice to our students and staff on how to best respond to emergency situations. Also, we continue to work closely with law enforcement and other security professionals to maximize our safety efforts.

    Please know that BBSD continues to be proactive in our safety measures. We encourage the community to work with the school district and local police departments, and to report any issues that may cause you concern. If you see something, please say something, and encourage your children to do the same.
