The Lynchburg City Schools Education Foundation hosted our 11th annual Breakfast with the Superintendent on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 7:30 a.m. at Lynchburg College. This year’s program was entitled, "The LCS Classroom of 2017” and we are proud to share that we had another amazing crowd with over 400 attendees! Dr. Scott S. Brabrand shared introductory remarks showcasing how this past year has been a year of champions for the Lynchburg City Schools with state titles in sports and the arts, for our schools with the successful opening of the Empowerment Academy and the New Heritage High School, and for educational growth with higher rates of academic improvement than in comparable districts. Dr. Brabrand’s remarks were followed by keynote speaker Dr. Jay McClain, Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning and Success. Dr. McClain’s presentation on ‘The LCS Classroom of 2017’ provided a comprehensive and entertaining overview of teaching through the years, how pedagogy has evolved over time, and how LCS is implementing best practices in education as our focus shifts from a culture of memorizing to grooming innovative and collaborative thinkers and learners.
