The Bright Minds Foundation 2021 State of Schools Event Postponed

April 15th, 2021

This week, on behalf of the Bright Minds Foundation, HCPSS announced the registration for its annual State of the Schools fundraiser. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, this event will be postponed.

The Foundation’s annual State of Schools fundraiser features the HCPSS Superintendent as keynote speaker and includes HCPSS students and staff as guest speakers at the event. Attendees have an opportunity to hear updates from the past year and engage the Superintendent in a question and answer session. This event is part of the Foundation’s effort to engage and inform the community about its programs to support Howard County students, families, and educators. The Superintendent makes the same presentation to the Board of Education and the community at-large during a Board of Education meeting prior to the event.

Bright Minds Foundation is the education foundation of the Howard County Public School system. The non-profit leverages community support and funding to address critical needs of HCPSS students and families that cannot be met by the HCPSS operating budget. Bright Minds Foundation and HCPSS hope to reschedule the annual fundraising event so that the Foundation may continue to enhance the educational experiences of all HCPSS students.
