Thank you to all parents and family members who came out last night to hear about the adapted safety response (ALICE) procedures and protocol, soon to be piloted at the Bishop School. There was great discussion with thoughtful questions asked. In response to our time together and with the ideas and philosophies shared, I will be sending out to all families, ‘talking points’ along with a general script that teachers will soon receive as they prepare to train our students. I want you to have the same materials as the Bishop staff for continuity sake. Student Training Date Change: Initially, our student training was scheduled for next Wednesday, the 27th. After consideration and conversations with staff, I feel it is best if we push this training to a later date to enable ample time to prepare for this training. I will be sure to send you this new date in the very near future. Note: You will receive resource materials before ANY conversations are had with your child.

No Child Left Behind

The federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires states and school districts to produce and disseminate annual report cards.

These report cards include information on student assessment, accountability, andteacher quality; the report cards may also include other information. They also provide parents and other members of the public a snapshot of student performance and teacher qualifications in their local schools.
