WHY CHANGE THE STRUCTURE OF THE BCS-PTF NOW?
The reason for restructuring the BCS-PTF is twofold: (1) per accreditation standards, this structure will ensure that BCS will meet or exceed key indicators regarding parent participation/communication and (2) the current PTF model of “top down” management of all events and activities is unsustainable.
WHAT ARE PTF ACTION TEAMS?
An alliance of parents and teachers of BCS students who support the vision and mission statement of Bethany Christian School. Action Teams work closely with BCS Administration to build community within the school and throughout the greater San Gabriel Valley. Made of richly diverse volunteers, Action Teams can achieve goals for BCS students and the campus as a whole, through innovative and meaningful leadership in the areas of science/technology, hospitality & fellowship, marketing/communications, classroom/student support, fundraising, and spiritual care.
PTF Action Teams support existing school programs and work together to develop new programs and resource materials to address specific interests of our students and school. Action Teams work alongside Administration to provide tools and assistance to ensure BCS students develop and offer the best of themselves to Jesus Christ, their families, and the community at-large.
PURPOSE OF PTF ACTION TEAMS
To foster deeper relationships between the parents, teachers, staff, and students of Bethany Christian School.
To become a volunteer force behind BCS events and activities.
To provide a forum for information sharing and relationship building.
To foster effective communication throughout the year to the BCS Community and about the BCS Community.
To make positive improvements to the BCS students’ educational experience by providing or enhancing opportunities to support Christ-centered excellence in academics, Christian character, and servant-leadership.
