Jonathan Brice – Bristol-Warren School District Interim Superintendent
1. What’s the number one thing parents and students should know about this district this year?
Bristol Warren Regional School District is poised to have a breakout year as we strive to become a Top 5 academically ranked district in five years. Our focus will be on increasing academic engagement and achievement for all students each day.
2. What is the biggest challenge your district faces?
The biggest challenge we face is to help students realize their potential as learners.
3. What is the vaccination rate for your district and what is your policy for opting out? Have you seen a spike or decline in the number of parents opting out over the last two years?
BWRSD has not seen an increase in parents opting out of the requirement to vaccinate their students. All students who are required to have updated immunizations have their records checked by our school nurses.
4. Some school districts in the state are banning electronic devices/cell phones. What is your current policy? Do you have plans to also ban electronic devices? If so, why?
BWRSD supports the use of technology in all grades and provides 1:1 Chromebooks for students beginning in 6th grade. Our current policy supports this initiative.
5. Tell us something nobody knows about your district.
Bristol Warren is a great place for students to learn and grow inside the classroom and in nature. Our students in 4th grade learn to sail.
