BBP’s ‘Thinking Forward’ Plan Focuses on Schools’ Future

The Bayport-Blue Point School District introduced a multidimensional plan for the future of education in its schools this November.  The design focuses on the vision for education as well as the priority areas for making this a reality.

The design, Thinking Forward, stems from a yearlong conversation with the community about what we want for our students and how best to align our efforts with those desired results. Thinking Forward reflects the district’s commitment to continually enhancing our efforts on behalf of all our students.  As no one element ensures student success, the design is comprised of four components – Learning, Connections, Environments and Pathways.

 “Thinking Forward reflects a belief that organizations are either improving or declining; there is no status quo,” said Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Vincent Butera. “While the challenges currently facing all school districts are real, we cannot allow these obstacles to prevent us from enhancing the experience of the 2,400 students who go through their K-12 years only once. By purposefully allocating our time, energy and resources, we will be able to develop scholars who possess the social, emotional and academic skills needed to be successful adults.”

The community is encouraged to continually visit the “Thinking Forward” section of the district website,, to learn more about ongoing efforts on behalf of all students in Bayport-Blue Point.
