I attended the National Character Education Conference in San Francisco on Oct 20-22, 2011. This page is designed to share information that is related to our efforts here at BCS and across the district.

Please use the discussion threads for any comments and/or questions regarding the conference! Please keep in mind I could not attend all sessions. However, I will continue to try to share as much information as possible.
