Hallway Pass Policy
If you allow students to eat lunch in the classroom with you, please make sure to escort them to the classroom. Do not trust them to come to your classroom on their own. We have found that there are some students who have manipulated this process.
Student Attendance Attendance Challenge
Last....is definitely not Beasley.We intend to participate in the 2nd Attendance Challenge to win a school wide trip to US. Cellular Field Wednesday, May 25th, 2016 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. It is time for us to win the next two challenges with a attendance rate of 97%. Classrooms with the next two highest attendance rates, we will try to arrange a movie day with popcorn. We are also interested in any other ideas you would like to propose.
It is time for our school to become Level 1+.

REACH Performance Tasks
Teachers should administer the EOY task(s) to the same class(es) of students assessed at the BOY. TASK DOWNLOAD: Ordered tasks have been delivered to schools. Teachers who need to download/print REACH PTs can do so at the PT page of the Knowledge Center.
EOY TASK SCORING: Schools are encouraged to use the collaborative scoring protocol (hard copy included in every order) to ensure teachers are scoring consistently. 80% of teachers who used it at the BOY agreed that it helped them score tasks “objectively and reliably.
