Attached is the Terroristic Threatening Letter; the purpose of this letter is to notify all parents/guardians, students and community members that school district officials [in coordination with responding law enforcement agencies] will pursue immediate legal charges for felony terroristic threatening in the second degree to the absolute fullest extent of the law against anyone who makes such threats to any staff member or student.

Counselors will be taking lunch from 12-1. Any changes will be based on master schedule openings, initial student requests, and required coursework.  There will be NO schedule changes after school begins per SBDM policy. Early College/BCTC/AP students may contact Mrs. Wells, to discuss issues, and set up an appointment if they have questions or concerns regarding their schedules.  See our school website for additional information and pay attention to BCTC Remind 101 texts.

9th and 10th Grade Students Who Met Benchmarks on 8th Grade MAPS and 9th Grade Star Testing
Ninth and tenth grade students, who met percentile benchmarks on 8th grade MAPs and 9th grade STAR testing, received a letter at the end of school year regarding a potential opportunity for Early College/BCTC classes.  The Site Based Decision Making council has tabled the discussion to further research educational impacts of this decision for students, staff, and our school's curriculum and graduation requirements.  

Thus, students' schedules for 19-20 will follow their intended selections from the spring advising/scheduling process.  More information will be made available about the future of extending the Early College program as decisions are made.
