2013-14 NC School Report Card & Parent Information Letter

Dear Parents:

WOW! What a FANTASTIC school year we had last year and continuing to have this year. We always strive to achieve higher and make improvements. Please review the attached 2013-14 NC School Report Card and read about the academic achievements our students have accomplished. We are extremely proud of them. Top achievements are: 4 School in Region 8 - TOP 2, 98 School in NC-TOP 4%, TOP 100 Schools in NC, TOP YC School, Title I Reward School, Title I TOP 10 Reward Schools in NC and a National Title I Distinguished School Nominee.

Due to being recognized as a TI TOP 10 Reward School in NC & National TI Distinguished School Nominee, BCES recently received a 100,000 mini grant from the NC Department of Public Instruction. We received an additional 20,000 after the newspaper article was published. A plan will be submitted to the NC DPI for approval on additional ways to improve our school, with the funding they have awarded us. We are excited about the possibilities and will keep you informed.

For the first time, NC is posting a school grade of A for all schools:

Overall School Performance is Grade: B, EOG Reading is Grade: B and EOG Math is Grade: A.

I want to personally say Thank You! Our School cannot make enormous achievements such as these without tremendous parent and community support. Together, we make a strong team and Soar to Excellence!

Best Regards,

Sherry F. Robinson Principal 100 Bald Creek School Road, Burnsville, North Carolina 287.14 (828) 682-2535 - FAX (828) 682-3575
