Bossier Schools and Centers to Be Closed Election Day

 

The Bossier Parish School Board has voted to close all Bossier Schools and Centers on Election Day Tuesday, November 4, 2014 in an effort to ensure student safety, maintain a secure environment and not disrupt the election process.

 

The board action, taken at a specially called meeting October 28, is in anticipation of an influx of visitors being on 31 of Bossier Schools’ campuses that serve as polling precincts.

 

In addition, the board included in its action to close all schools and centers in future years whenever an election falls on a school day. 

 

We appreciate your understanding and encourage everyone to get out and vote.

Celebrating National School Lunch Week With Flair

 

  Bossier Schools’ Child Nutrition department encouraged students and faculty across the parish to “Get In the Game With School Lunch” the week of October 14-17, in conjunction with National School Lunch Week.

 

 Created in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy, National School Lunch Week is a weeklong celebration of the school lunch program.

 

 Child Nutrition Supervisor Sha Kirkendoll and her staff began the celebration by dressing in team jerseys to coincide with the theme, “Get In the Game With School Lunch.” School mascots were also on hand and nutrition facts were included inside balloons that were released during the kick-off event.

 

 The next day, dignitaries and media were invited to ditch the brown bag and enjoy lunch at W.T. Lewis Elementary. Bossier Schools Superintendent D.C. Machen and Assistant Superintendent Tom Daniel dined on steak fingers and potatoes, as well as School Board members Frank Kelly, Mike Mosura and Tammy Smith. Senator Barrow Peacock also came for lunch and chatted with Principal Lisa Burns and Assistant Principal Jody Kaiser.

 

 Making the meal especially enjoyable was the entertainment. Students used fruits and veggies to create crazy hats. One hat even had lights around it while another was fashioned from fresh peppers and turnip greens. As an added touch, that student sprayed her ponytail green to match the leafy greens in her hair.

 

 The purpose of National School Lunch Week is to encourage kids to find a balance between healthy eating and physical activity. Today’s lunches reflect the emphasis on healthful eating. At breakfast, at least one fruit is served and at lunch, a fruit and a vegetable.


 So, get in the game with school lunch!

Performance Scores Announced By Bossier Schools

 

The Louisiana Department of Education has released its annual report card for school districts throughout the state, revealing Bossier Parish Schools continue to make gains in all assessment areas.

 

Three schools increased a letter grade, three were named Top Gains Schools and the district itself continued to improve, moving to a District Performance Score of 98.3; a high ‘B’ and only 1.7 points away from an ‘A.’ This places Bossier Schools among the top 12 districts across the state.

 

“We are very pleased by the continued growth and improvement being made at our individual schools and district level,” said Bossier Schools Superintendent D.C. Machen. “When you have School Performance Scores improving within a range that runs up to 10 or more points, you have to attribute this success to the collective effort and hard work of teachers, students, parents and community, each fulfilling their role to ensure our students are being provided every opportunity to achieve to their greatest potential.”

 

Apollo Elementary was the back-drop for a news conference to announce Bossier Schools' scores. The school demonstrated significant improvement, being designated as the eighth Bossier Parish school to receive an A rating. This is in large part due to 100-percent of last year’s fourth graders at Apollo passing the LEAP. Now fifth graders, the Rockets proudly waved signs at the news conference declaring 'We are an 'A' school!'  

 

Haughton High School also moved up a letter grade to a B; and T.O. Rusheon Middle School increased to a C.

 

Schools receiving Top Gains distinction include Apollo, Legacy Elementary and Stockwell Place Elementary. Schools in Bossier Parish receiving this prestigious distinction over the past three years now number 22.

 

Bossier Schools improved in all assessment indices, including the K-8 assessments; the End of Course (EOC) index for 9th-12th; ACT scores and the graduation co-hort rate index, which increased by eight points.   

 

Also of interest, 29-percent of all 3rd-12th graders tested at Mastery level or above, which is reflective of a 2-percent gain across the district. To see each school's report card, go to the drop-down tabs at the top and click on 'Schools.'

 

Machen noted, “Improving at the Mastery and Advanced levels clearly demonstrates that as the Bossier Parish School System continues to raise the bar within our schools, our students will consistently continue to exceed our expectations.”
