Welcome to Vectors, the brand new online news website from BASIS.ed.
A vector — as many of our students know — has magnitude, as well as direction, and most notably helps determine the position of one point of space relative to another.
And so shall our Vectors be: we’ll share the magnitude and direction of each of our two dozen BASIS.ed schools, and of BASIS.ed, BASIS Independent, BASIS Global, and BASIS Educational Ventures.
Vectors will likewise “determine the position” of the hundreds of teachers and thousands of students within the BASIS.ed network relative to other schools, other school systems, other American kids who are also preparing for the next lesson, the next grade, the next small step in the giant leap of their educational journeys.
We know each of our schools is unique, each of our entities does what it, in particular, does best.
But we also know that every student who goes to a school with the BASIS name shares something — so Vectors will deliver the big news about what we all do, and how we all do it.
Vectors will generate features, closer looks at teachers and ideas and subjects we study, plus details about activities and triumphs and results.
Vectors will re-post some of the excellent pieces from our existing school websites, blogs, and social media, while also giving our teachers, students and families a chance to share their experiences.
Vectors will directly convey the view into our classrooms by teachers and school leaders, and even our founders and educational experts.
Vectors will also link to pertinent news, happenings, and insight from outside websites and sources, including media and blogs, community and curricular partners, and educational thinkers.
Finally, it’s important to note that the ‘magnitude and direction’ of Vectors aims to reach the entire BASIS.ed network of schools — each parent and student, every teacher and staffer, and the hundreds of community supporters, school boosters, and ever-toiling employees at BASIS.ed, BASIS Independent, BASIS Global, and BASIS Ventures, as well as prospective students, parents, and teachers, and beyond.
