2014-15 school year Attendance Policy.....................click hereParents as we close-out the 1st semester, please review the Bladen County Schools district attendance policy. It is very important that your child is in attendance at school each day. The attendance rate is important because students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. It's difficult for the teacher and the class to build their skills and progress if a large number of students are frequently absent. In addition to falling behind in academics, students who are not in school on a regular basis are more likely to get into trouble with the law and cause problems in their communities. Research and studies have found that dropout patterns were linked with poor attendance, beginning in kindergarten. These studies discovered that as early as kindergarten, behavioral differences are apparent between those who go on to graduate and those who drop out, with dropouts missing an average of 124 days by eighth grade. Additionally, school budgets may suffer when students don't attend. In North Carolina, school budgets are based on the average daily attendance at a school. If many students enrolled at a school fail to consistently attend, the school has less money to pay for essential classroom needs. Please help us help your child succeed by ensuring their daily attendance in school.

2014-15 School Assessment Parent Survey - Open survey here ...........Schools celebrate the good things happening in their buildings in dozens of different ways. They celebrate students' citizenship and creativity, academics and attendance. They celebrate daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly. Recently, we asked our principals to share some of the good things happening at their schools and the accomplishments of students in their schools. We had no idea how many and varied the responses would be. Their responses can be found on our district website under District News: Principals offer assessment”, and on our Facebook and Twitter pages. We quickly realized that if our principals responses are varied then equally so would be responses from our communities and stakeholders.
Our solution to bridging the gap between information is two-fold: to highlight several good things that are happening in each of our school buildings; and, to ask our communities, stakeholders, and parents to offer their assessment of the schools.
Parent Portal now open.......................As a PowerSchool parent, you can check to see whether or not your child is in attendance for the day, find out what assignments they are currently working on, and view your child's final grades as they exist in the teacher's gradebook at this very moment. You can also register to receive alert notifications, register your email to receive newletters and flyers, and much more.
