This is the image for the news article titled Announcing a New Community Partnership - Loving BISDBrazosport Independent School District is happy to announce a new community partnership, Loving BISD. With the assistance of the founding group Loving Houston, three former educators, Susan Moore, Rosemond Panzarella and Mary Leveron brought the idea of organizing area churches to help serve and volunteer at the 19 campuses in BISD. Although several faith-based organizations have helped on various campuses through the years, this is the first time a coordinated effort of those groups along with many more has ever been established to meet the needs of students in Brazosport.

The newly formed Loving BISD group held their first formation meeting this past week at Lake Jackson Intermediate School. BISD Superintendent Danny Massey welcomed the group saying, “We know that community and school collaboration is vital to the success of our students and we are so grateful to have all of you joining us.”

Massey went on to share that BISD strives to provide each child with a quality education through outstanding learning experiences with the support of kind, caring and compassionate teachers and staff. He further stated that the contagious community pride that is seen throughout the district is unique to the Brazosport area and groups such as this newly formed Loving BISD, play an integral part in the lives of our students.

Susan Moore and Rosemond Panzarella also addressed the group and shared the background and the beginning process for forming the new partnership between area churches and BISD. They told those attending that in order for the partnership to be successful and sustainable, both the campuses and the members of the new group would need to be mindful of the laws governing separation of church and state. They further emphasized that both must commit to a strong and enduring relationship while working together to determine how the volunteers and resources could best be used to address the needs of the students and teachers.
