Statement from Superintendent Gary Fields

June 3, 2020

As our students, staff, parents, and the entire Bowling Green community come together to speak out against the injustices that continue to occur against African American men and women in our country, our school community commits to lead the effort to bring about change. As the last week has unfolded, my colleagues who are part of my Purples’ Family have expressed anger, sadness, feeling unheard, and hopelessness. To hear it directly from the individuals I consider friends, outstanding educators, and the future of our school district gives me extreme pause. Moving forward we must create meaningful opportunities within our school family for our staff and students to be heard, for each of them to have a voice, for myself and others to listen, and then develop a collaborative plan on how to bring about change within our school district for students and staff.

For our community members searching for ways to have an impact moving forward, I suggest you volunteer in our school system. I invite you to engage with our students and develop a better understanding of our diverse student body that is a direct reflection of who we are as a community. By spending quality time in our schools as a mentor, a class helper, assisting our Family Resource and Youth Service Centers on their various projects, volunteering for our summer feeding programs, assisting our “Girls with Pearls” or our “Boys to Men” clubs, we can actively learn with, listen to, and support our students and the future of our community. All of us must be a part of the solution.

Gary Fields,
Superintendent

All BGISD Students Eligible for P-EBT Program

School closures due to the COVID-19 led to the loss of free and reduced-price school meals for many children. Families can now receive help from a program offered by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services and Kentucky Department of Education. All students of Bowling Green City Schools are eligible for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), a program that provides a benefits card to be used to buy food.  The P-EBT is a one-time benefit with eligible households to receive up to $313.50 per eligible student. Program enrollment is automatic for children receiving SNAP, TANF, Kinship Care and Medicaid. Households with children not enrolled in assistance programs must apply for P-EBT benefits at benefind.ky.gov by June 30, 2020. More information can be found in the Kentucky Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

The student's state ID is required for the application. It may be found by logging in to either the Infinite Campus Parent or Campus Student Portal (the Student Portal username IS the SSID).
