Dear Birmingham Family,
This is our final Parent Weekly of the Year. I’m excited to share that despite the many obstacles we’ve been faced with this school year, we continue to make progress with an increasing percentage of students (almost 60%) meeting university eligibility requirements, while also maintaining a high graduation rate (over 90%). This would not have been possible without frequent feedback provided by parents, students, teachers, and counselors. This semester has been one of the most collaborative on record and will serve to be formative in our effort to truly live the standard of a community school that listens to the many voices of students and parents. With this in mind, please take the 1 question survey using the link below to help us assess the degree to which our families are comfortable with bringing students back on campus in the fall. We don’t know yet whether we will be allowed to bring our students back for 1 or 2 days in the fall to supplement online learning. However, we would like to assess if this is something our families would prefer, or if you’d prefer (due to safety reasons) to continue with a more robust 100% Distance Learning Program in the fall. Please answer the survey question to let us know. https://forms.gle/sHveJaXxTG748kVe8.
DISTANCE LEARNING IN THE FALL?
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
JUNE 10- JULY 6
Students will be expected to check in with teachers via Zoom each day during the designated time for the morning and afternoon classes and should reach out to their counselor with any questions about summer school. If internet is an issue, please contact IT@birminghamcharter.com to request a hotspot for your student.

Please note that the school year will begin on August 10th, but be on the lookout this summer for updates on our fall instructional plan.
I wish you all the best as we transition into the summer, and hope you and your family members remain well and healthy.
