Trust Cards

We have many great students at Bailey Jr High that do great things each and every day.  We think these students should be rewarded for their good behavior.  Therefore, we are introducing trust cards.  This week students received their trust card during their social studies classes.  The trust card is a student ID that grants them certain privileges when they have it on.  These privileges will begin on October 12th.  You may view the October 6th email regarding trust cards by clicking here.

Credit Recovery

If your student failed a core course for the 1st 6 weeks, they will be assigned the course to recover through our Edgenuity program.  They will have the opportunity to attend the Edgenuity lab to work on the course – once they have finished the course, their report card grade will be changed to a passing grade.  The credit recovery lab will be open Monday/Wednesday after school and Tuesday/Thursday before school.

Your student will have until October 29 to complete the course.  They may also work at HOME on the course.  Your student will receive directions to log in and the instructions will also be emailed to parents.  

If you need more information please contact your child’s counselor.
