Attend the city’s BPS Listening Sessions from NOW until March

Sign up now to attend school “listening sessions” with other BCAN members and parents. Speak up for zero carbon school buildings with 21st century heating and ventilation systems.

Use the Talking Points and Fact Sheet developed by BCAN and FamCOSa! If you require interpretation and/or child care for one of the listening sessions, the City asks that you register here.
