​​A note from the School Governance Council

Under the new Fulton County Charter System, school leaders and School Governance Councils have the opportunity to develop concepts that will meet the school's identified needs and drive sustainable improvements in student achievement.  As part of the Birmingham Falls Elementary School (BFES) Strategic Plan, the BFES School Governance Council (SGC) is proposing a Request for Flexibility (RFF) for the 2016-17 school year. A RFF is a proposal to waive district and/or state laws/policies to implement a school based strategy. We are seeking your input on the proposed RFF.

RFF Summary: 

To increase student engagement in academics and increase critical thinking and writing skills, the SGC is requesting that 3 professional learning days be added to the 2016-17 school year. These days would allow for the presentation of strategies in Talented and Gifted (TAG) instruction and project-based learning, as well as the continuation of writing workshops. 

 The proposed professional learning days in 2016/17 are Friday, September 2, Friday, November 18, and Friday, January 13.  The exact dates will be determined by early December, after your comments are received and reviewed.

These dates are being currently proposed since they are Fridays that are followed by a Monday school holiday (Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Martin Luther King Day) and are as closely aligned as possible with other feeder schools in the Milton area that also have full release days.  More importantly, these dates will allow teachers to complete the training in the first half of the year, maximizing benefits for students in the 2016/17 year. Teachers will also benefit by having the opportunity to consume and implement the material more easily, if spread over 3 days versus concentrated in a 1 week period of time.  Please note that during these days, there would be no school for students, but staff would report for full days of training. 

We encourage you to review the full document encompassing our RFF below.

It is also available for viewing at the front desk or on the SGC Website for more information or by clicking here.

We look forward to receiving your comments about the RFF and proposed professional development dates. You may submit them in writing at the front desk by asking for the "RFF Comment Form" or online by clicking here.

Thank you for your time.

Birmingham Falls is participating in the Six Flags "Read to Succeed" this school year.  For those who are not familiar with "Read to Succeed", it is a free educational program sponsored by Six Flags. The program inspires kids in grades K through 5 to engage in recreational reading. Students who complete six hours of recreational, non-school-related reading are eligible to earn a free admission ticket to a participating Six Flags theme park.  We know the kids LOVE getting a free Six Flags ticket so, with your help, we can quickly get this going!

Reading logs are sent home by your child's homeroom teacher.  You can also print a Reading Log here: http://static.sixflags.com/readtosucceed/Y20142015/StudentReadingLog.pdf

The DEADLINE to submit the form to your teacher is no later than, Monday, February 1st.  ​
