WAYS TO GET INVOLVED.
Family engagement is ingrained into our BMPV history. In 2015, parents formalized our organization into a 501(c)3 and we have grown and earned trust in our community from teachers and families.

In the Classroom & At Events

DCPS Clearance Process
The goal of this document is to outline and clarify the DCPS volunteering policy and its application at our school. We strongly encourage all parents, guardians, and family members to look for ways to engage in your child’s educational experience.
Per DCPS policy, all parents/guardians and family members who wish to participate in a volunteer opportunity are required to complete the DCPS volunteer requirements as outlined below. If you are a Federal Employee there is a simpler process, please email us if this is the case <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
A volunteer opportunity is defined as participating in a school sponsored event on a singular day and can take place here at BMPV, as a chaperone on a field trip, or at a school sponsored event at another location. This does not include attending BMPV events such as assemblies, family/back to school nights, or other events open to our community, but would include volunteering to help staff them. All volunteer opportunities must be approved by BMPV administration, and will be tracked over the course of the year.
