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.

As a school district, we can’t end racism and injustice, but what we can do is learn about patterns and root causes of injustice and commit to do things differently. The transformation of BCPS is at its heart, an effort to increase equity. At Battle Creek Public Schools, our equity imperative is rooted in our belief that all students, regardless of race, income, zip code, identities or abilities, should have the opportunity to reach their potential.

We are excited to announce that we’ll be able to continue offering meal pickups through the end of June.

Thank you to all the Battle Creek heroes who are coming together to make this possible!
