School Governance Council 

Birmingham Falls Elementary School will be electing new representatives to serve on our inaugural School Governance Council (SGC).  There are three parent/guardian positions and two teacher positions open for election this fall.  Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal on the long-term vision and strategy for the school. They are responsible for approving the school's strategic plan and budget recommendations, as well as designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community.

Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held November 12th- 18th. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit to the district office by October 15th! Candidate declaration forms can be submitted electronically or by mail to the district office. Hard copies of the candidate declaration forms are located in the front office.

To declare your candidacy for a position on the School Governance Council or to learn more information about Charter System and SGCs, please access the SGC Elections webpage by clicking the link below:

Business Partner Spotlight: LearningRx

If your child is struggling with reading or attention, or if they're simply having difficulty keeping up with the class, LearningRx may be able to help.  LearningRx offers Woodcock-Johnson III cognitive skills testing, which measures a child's underlying mental skills (long-term and short-term memory, processing speed, logic & reasoning, auditory processing, etc).  By evaluating the cognitive skills, the assessment can determine the root cause of your child's difficulties, which allows you to understand the child's cognitive struggles and seek to improve his or her weaknesses.  This battery of testing can cost $600 or more at most providers, but because of LearningRx's relationship to BFES, the assessment is available to Birmingham Falls Elementary students for $124.  If you would like more information about this testing or LearningRx's cognitive training programs, feel free to visit www.learningrx.com or call 770-475-3276.


Student Health Forms

If you have a student who has asthma, allergies, seizure disorder or other health-related conditions that require administration of medication or treatment during the school day, please be sure to provide the School Clinic with all necessary information. All Medication Authorization Forms and Health Care Plans may be found on the Student Health Services Website. If you have any questions, please contact the clinic or Judy Reddick RN, Cluster School Nurse, at 404-625-6169.
