Brockton Kids Count
Brockton Kids Count is an advocacy campaign that debuted in March 2016 as a response to a proposed state budget reconfiguration that left the Brockton Public Schools with a $10 million deficit. It kicked off at the same time questioned were raised about other inequitable ways in which urban school districts are underfunded.
Over the months since then, the Brockton Kids Count campaign gained significant momentum, bringing students, staff, parents, our elected officials and the community as a whole together to advocate as one voice for needed funding for our schools.
But Brockton Kids Count is not just about a budget. It is a permanent, timeless facet of our district strategic communication plan, meant to empower parents, families and the community -- and elevate and empower involvement in our school district.
