Fulton County Schools Parents,
Superintendent Jeff Rose recently recommended a change to the district’s 2018-2019 School Year Calendar. At its August meeting, the Fulton County Board of Education voted to approve that recommendation.
This school year, November 6, 2018 has been changed from a regular school day, to a teacher work day. March 8, 2019 has been changed from a teacher work day, to a regular school day.
The decision alleviates safety concerns raised by some parents and staff, allows for additional staff training on safety protocols, and maintains instructional time for our students. Additionally, the Fulton County school board has expressed interest in addressing a long-term solution through the legislative process by removing schools as polling places.
You may have heard your student talking about PBIS. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. The goal of PBIS is to create a positive school climate, in which students learn and grow. With PBIS, students are explicitly taught the expectations and procedures for the school as a whole as well as specific "hot spots" where problems are known to occur. Through this explicit instruction, the students learn what kind of behavior is and is not appropriate in each specific area.
You can help your student by reminding them about the three expectations in school: Be Ready, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. Students are recognized for positive behavior with Bear Bucks. The Bear Bucks go into a classroom drawing each week and students are recognized on the news for outstanding behavior.
Thank you for your support in creating a positive school climate at RNE!
