Falls City Academy Titans
2nd quarter has begun
New High School
“We see it as growing because there’s a need,” Jerome School District Superintendent Dale Layne said Monday. “It’s just a different opportunity for kids. Just a smaller environment is probably on
Falls City e of the biggest differences.”
The state requires prospective students to meet three of the following criteria: has repeated at least one grade, absenteeism higher than 10 percent compared with the previous semester, failed at least one academic subject in the past year, behind on credits toward graduation or grade promotion, attended three or more schools within the last two years, has a pattern of substance-abuse behavior, is pregnant or a parent, an emancipated or unaccompanied youth, a previous dropout, has a serious personal/emotional/medical issue, has a court or agency referral, or demonstrates behavior that’s detrimental to their academic progress.
Falls City Academy students have been going to the Jerome Senior Center and helping for the last month. Students set out plates, prepare coffee and tea and prep salad. The seniors come in get lunch and the students make sure coffee and tea is filled and remove plates when the person is finished with their meal.
This is a great way for our students to show respect and serve others.
