BCPS adjusts to new normals in midst of COVID-19

We all know that many things have changed in the world, especially how children are being taught. In this episode of Learn in Burke, we bring on members of the Burke County Public Schools Leadership Team to talk about several different ways we have adapted to school closures, remote learning, food distribution and how we will get through this together. This is a longer podcast, but there is a great amount of valuable information that will be worth the time!

‘Not your momma’s kitchen’ – Ep. 09

In this episode of Learn in Burke: a Burke County Public Schools Podcast, we sit down with leadership from Chartwells, the schools system’s independent food service management company; Daniel Wall, child nutrition director; and Superintendent Dr. Larry Putnam. We open up and discuss how ‘cafeteria food’ has changed over the years and how it is not ‘your momma’s kitchen’, the goals we have for increasing student and staff participation and what the process is like in bringing in new menu items to students.
