Plan to Focus on Equity, Engagement, and Deep LearningVermont Business Magazine On July 1, Burlington School District Superintendent Tom Flanagan launched his first day in the Burlington School District (BSD) by announcing an ambitious 100 Day Entry Plan, focused on bridging opportunity gaps in equity, empowering student engagement, and deepening community learning.“As educators, as students, and as community members, equity needs to constantly be at the forefront of our minds. Prioritizing engagement and creating opportunities for deep learning, especially in consideration of COVID-19 and this era of remote learning, are two of our top priorities as a District and at the heart of this entry plan,” said Flanagan. “As your new Superintendent, I am appreciative of the hard work already accomplished by our passionate faculty and staff and conscious of the work still to be done.”The 100 Day Entry Plan encompasses Superintendent Flanagan’s core beliefs, goals, and three main phases of implementation.Burlington School District Superintendent Tom FlanaganPhase one, completed in June, laid groundwork for Superintendent Flanagan’s transition, emphasizing relationship-building and learning.Phase two, the heart of the plan, will extend 100 days—from July 1 to October 9. Some activities include, but are not limited to, an equity and race workshop series for District and school leadership, a review of the BSD special education program, town hall meetings to engage families and the community, and the establishment of a professional development plan in collaboration with the BEA.Phase three looks to the future past October, outlining goals to analyze data collected in Phase 2 and the development of a five-year strategic plan.“Over the past four months Tom has made it a priority to meet remotely with District leaders, school administrators and students one-on-one. Although his official start date was not until July 1, Tom felt it was important to hear from many voices and to lay the groundwork for the coming school year,” said BSD School Board Chair, Clare Wool. “The Board, our District, and our greater community as a whole are motivated by Tom’s commitment—we are ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work with Superintendent Flanagan!”The 100 Day Entry Plan was translated into multiple languages in written, oral and video formats to better access BSD’s many diverse families. “A key to getting started is to make sure I am reaching everyone in the community. This commitment to equity and engagement will be a common theme and is essential to developing a top quality school system together,” said Flanagan. “I can’t wait to get started.”Burlington School District (BSD) is a pre-k-12 public school system of about 4,000 students in Burlington, VT. BSD’s mission is to graduate students who: value different cultures, engage with the community, communicate effectively, think creatively, skillfully solve problems, and achieve at their highest academic, intellectual, and personal potential.Source: Burlington, VT — Burlington School District 7.1.2020 www.bsdvt.org(link is external)

Nigerian athletes will prove that the country still is “the giant of Africa” at the 14th African Athletics Confederation U18 and U20 African Championships which began yesterday in Abidjan the capital of Ivory Coast according to the technical director of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), Sunday Adeleye.Nigeria’s team of 96 athletes is the largest of any country in Ivory Coast and represents the largest ever number to represent Nigeria at the U18 and U20 African Championships.Adeleye told busybuddiesng.com that the AFN, despite being plagued by financial difficulty (the sports ministry refused to fund Nigeria’s participation at this championship and Nigeria’s contingent made the journey to Ivory Coast by bus), made the decision to send a record number of athletes to the championships in order expose them to conditions that will help accelerate their development.Nigeria missed out on the last U18 and U20 African Championships held in Algeria in 2017 because of financial constraints and Adeleye using the excuse of lack for not competing at these age-grade meets would mean the AFN will be shortchanging the athletes at a vital stage of their development especially as many of them will never get another opportunity to compete at this level. “We are actually doing this [sending 96 athletes] because you can go to senior competitions as many times as you can but you can’t always go for junior [competitions] because you surpass the age and then the generation,” Adeleye said.“If this generation misses this one again because the Nigerian team we have been losing out in the Junior competitions we’ve not attended the Juniors in about two series because of lack of funds. Even now we still have the issue of lack of funds so are we going to continue saying there’s lack of funds for almost a decade saying we are not going for this competition? No.“So we came about agreeing that let’s go with these athletes let’s expose them because they need exposure. This is the bedrock of Nigerian track and field athletes’ performance this is where we must start from. If we don’t expose these athletes, then when do we expose them?”“A lot of them will never be eighteen again after this year, a lot of them will never be eighteen again after next month. So that is why we’ve said we are going with this large pool to expose these athletes because [it helps us for the Olympics in] 2020, then give them that confidence.”With Nigeria returning to the competition with such a large number of athletes, Adeleye says it is time once again for that Nigeria still is “the giant of Africa” in athletics.“Our target is to go there and of course do Nigeria proud and do ourselves proud and of course to show our dominance in Africa: that we are still the giant of Africa and that, of course, we are still good in what we know how to do best which is sports.”Related

Kickoff is Saturday night at 6 p.m. Toronto FC comes into Saturday’s game with a 13-10-11 record. They’re coming off a 1-0 win over the Columbus Crew. Jozy Altidore suffered a quadriceps injury and withdrew from Team USA’s CONCACAF action including the contest played at Audi Field. Olsen said later in the interview, “I think they’re in good form and I think we’re in good form. It tends to be a fun matchup. We understand the quality that they bring, and they’re certainly as sharp as they’ve been all season at the right time. But again, we feel like we also are pretty clear in who we are and how to go about the game to have success. Then it’s just about which team executes and make the plays that matter on game day. We are looking forward to it. D.C. United heads north of the border to begin the 2019 MLS Cup playoffs in a brand new format. Unlike the previous format of two legs at both stadiums, this tournament will now be strictly a one-and-done, win-or-go-home format. As intimidating as it sounds, the Black and Red are up to the challenge. D.C. United played to a scoreless draw in their finale at Audi Field with FC Cincinnati. The silver lining was that it was their fifth consecutive shutout. D.C. United is now tied with Atlanta United for 14 shutouts, the most in the league.
