Bulloch Honors 2014 REACH Georgia Scholars

Bulloch County Schools (BCS) honored five new REACH Georgia Scholars at a signing ceremony September 25, at the Board of Education (BOE)’s central office. Chosen from 66 applicants, the eighth-grade students, and their families, were recognized by Rep. Jan Tankersley, the BOE, the Bulloch County Foundation for Public Education (Foundation), and Superintendent Charles Wilson. Each now has up to $20,000 available to them to attend college. This $100,000 investment is made possible by REACH Georgia, the Foundation, and local post-secondary partners, like Georgia Southern University, East Georgia College and Ogeechee Technical College who have agreed to double-match each of the original $10,000 scholarships. Bulloch County’s 2013 and 2014 scholars now have a combined total of $200,000 invested in their education in addition to any other scholarships them may receive.

Representatives from NASA's Johnson Space Center and Marshall Space Flight Center visited Mattie Lively Elementary and Mill Creek Elementary on September 19, as part of Georgia Southern University's 2nd annual STEM Festival that promotes interest in science, technology, engineering, and math.
 
Students learned about current NASA missions and careers and participated in fun experiments that taught them about air pressure and the distance between the sun and the different planets.  Older students were challenged to work in teams to design and build a mobile launch pad that could sustain weight using only 15 straws, a small piece of plastic and tape.

BCS to Present Final Improvement Plan for Federal & State Programs (CLIP)

School System Logo Blue for web.JPGBulloch County Schools' Federal Programs Director Georgiana Darsey will present the school system's finalized Consolidated Local Education Agency Improvement Plan (CLIP) to the public on Thursday, Oct. 2, 5:30 - 6:00 p.m., in the Board of Education's board room located at 150 Williams Road. The public had input into the plan at a meeting held earlier this year.

 

On April 22, Bulloch County Schools invited parents and the community to give input to its federal and state programs. The school system holds this type meeting annually to ensure continued funding for these programs.

The following items were discussed at the meeting:

  • Obtained public input on the school system's District Parent Involvement Policy that guides the services, events and resources offered by our parent involvement coordinators.

 

  • Revised and approve the school system's Consolidated Local Education Agency Improvement Plan (CLIP).The CLIP is a consolidated planning document for each of the federal programs that the school system provides under the Elementary and Secondary Education (ESEA) Act and the Georgia Department of Education's Professional Learning Program.This consolidated plan eliminates the need for Bulloch County Schools to submit a separate planning document for each individual program. If you have a child that receives any of the following services, this meeting may be of interest to you:(1) attends any of our 13 Title I schools (all schools are Title I except SHS and SEBHS); (2) special education; (3)English for Speakers of Other Languages; (4) Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE); (5) migrant; (6) any academic intervention services; or (7) homeless intervention.

If you need additional information, contact Bulloch County Schools' Federal Programs Director Georgiana Darsey at 212-8555 or gdarsey@bulloch.k12.ga.us.
