Board Goals

BOE Letter to the Community

January 22, 2022

Dear Bainbridge-Guilford Community Members and Alumni,
Over the past week many of you have reached out to members of our Board of Education to voice outrage, pain, and concern over a grotesquely racist video that appeared on social media. As a District, we continually strive towards the creation of an inclusive learning environment that embraces diversity, and therefore have absolutely no tolerance for any form of racist, bigoted, discriminatory, or hateful speech and actions from any members of the Bainbridge-Guilford School community. 

As the investigation into this painful situation continues, we wanted to express our strong commitment as the Board of Education to listening to the voices and needs of the members of the BG community. We will continue to engage in these conversations as we move forward, in hopes that we can not only help our community to heal, but also to stand in solidarity with all of our students as we focus on creating an environment of respect that they all deserve. 
Keith Hanvey, Board of Education President
Gordon Daniels, Board of Education Vice-President
Shelly Bartow, Board of Education Member
John L. Gliha, Board of Education Member
Jeanne Shields, Board of Education Member
Timothy Suda, Board of Education Member
Rebecca Sullivan, Board of Education Member
