About Us

At Battle Creek Public Schools, transformation is underway and excellence is on the rise. We are offering new opportunities for every student at every level. New programs offer more professional enrichment for educators as well as more opportunities for project-based learning, hands-on experiences and individualized support for students. The Battle Creek community came together to shape the Career Academies at BCCHS, and our first class of academy students declared their pathway selections in May. In the fall of 2019, we opened two innovative new schools to expand what BCPS has to offer. While we work to implement these exciting new options, we are also investing strategically to ensure that that we are transforming the student experience at every BCPS school. Meaningful changes to school environments, learning resources, teacher support systems and more will help us keep the promise of transformation for every student, in every grade, in every school.

We are thrilled to continue to scale up excellence in year three and beyond and can’t wait to see what the future holds for our students.

Right now, Michigan schools will be closed until April 13, 2020, following the governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order earlier this week. The decision about when schools will reopen will be made by state education leaders and the Michigan State Legislature. We are waiting to hear whether this closure will be extended beyond April 13. Right now, this is yet to be announced, but we will keep you updated as we learn more.
