BAEF Presents State of the Schools
First published in the Sept. 10 print issue of the Burbank Leader.
Save the date, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m. for learning and engaging with the Burbank Unified School District. The Burbank Arts and Education Foundation is proud to present the 2022 State of the Schools virtual event and live panel Q&A. Register for this free event by going to BAEF.gives.
The evening will start with a video highlighting the students, families and educators of BUSD. Stay for the Q&A to hear what’s on the minds of Burbank families and community members. Families were given the opportunity to submit questions through a district wide email request. BAEF Board Chair, Brenda Etterbeek, will moderate the live panel featuring Superintendent Matt Hill, School Board President Charlene Tabet, Burroughs High math teacher Jessica Palaski, Muir Middle School drama teacher Stephen James, and Disney Elementary Spanish dual immersion teacher Hilde Garcia.
Community members and businesses can support the State of the Schools virtual event by becoming a sponsor, making an impact for Burbank students. With generous support from the Burbank community, BAEF awarded more than $100,000 in teacher and school grants during the 2021-22 school year, including a large gift for the district to purchase ukuleles, providing equitable access to instrumental music instruction for all 11 elementary schools. BAEF grants funded programs in the areas of arts, music, STEM, literacy, student wellness, student safety and more.
