In September of 2014, the Charter Oak Education Foundation (formerly Charter Oak Partners in Education...aka COPE) asked BETA to help create a new look. Mrs. Strycula and Mr. Parslow invited various academy students to take on the project. Several students attended a foundation board meeting to ask questions and get an idea of what the Foundation had in mind. The Foundation board members explained to the students that they wanted their ideas and opinions on the new name and logo since it is their education foundation and they wanted them to have ownership in the foundation as they are our future board of directors! The students came back with the name ‘Charter Oak Education Foundation’ with the idea that they should ‘tell it like it is’. Then, several students set about the task of designing logos which were then submitted to the board of directors. After much deliberation, and appreciation for the talent of these creative students, the directors chose the design created by Alyssa Fuentes, a senior in BETA who is currently in Mrs. Strycula's Capstone class (and a former student in Mr. Parslow's digital arts classes).
