Important Information about Breakfast
In order to have more students be able to enjoy a school breakfast, starting January 17, we will begin serving breakfast at two different times. Grades 3-5 will eat from 7:30-7:50 and K-2 will eat from 7:50 – 8:10. It is our plan that breakfast will be served quicker and more children will join us for breakfast. Tardy time will still be 8:00.

HIGH PROGRESS REWARD SCHOOL

REWARD SCHOOL

PARENT NOTIFICATION

         HIGH PROGRESS REWARD SCHOOL PARENT NOTIFICATION

January 5, 2016

 

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

 

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 requires that parents or guardians who have children attending a Title I school be notified of how well their school is preparing its students for college and/or a career, as well as the school’s designation under Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver.

 

Under the 2015 renewal of Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver, certain Title I schools continue to be designated as Reward, Priority, or Focus Schools.  The Waiver allows the use of the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) as the comprehensive report card for all schools in Georgia, providing a score between 0-100 for each school—measuring how well the school is doing in preparing its students to be successful in college and/or a career.

 

2015 CCRPI scores have not been reported as of this time. Once those scores have been published, all parents will be notified. Our 2014 score was 87.8. 

 

I am very proud to tell you that Blackburn Elementary School has been designated as a High Progress Reward School based on our performance over the past three school years! This is a very big recognition, and we are excited for our school.

 

At Blackburn Elementary School, we take pride in the teaching we provide for our children. Our teachers and staff members work very hard to meet the needs of all students to ensure they achieve at their highest potential. This recognition shows that students are learning and making good progress.

 

An important part of BES’s success is parent participation and support in developing activities to improve student achievement.  We hope that you will become involved in our school improvement work as we continue to monitor student achievement and set high expectations.  If you are interested in participating in the development of our school improvement plans, being a part of our family engagement team or have questions about how you can better help your child in school, please contact me at (706)-864-8180 or at linda.parr@lumpkinschools.com.

 

Thank you for all that you do to support your child’s education.

 

Sincerely,

 

Linda Parr

Principal
