Message to the Bogalusa City School District Community:
The 2021 – 2022 BCSS school year began on August 5, 2021! We have been planning throughout the summer to make this school year the best ever!
As we move into the 2021 – 2022 school year, we come together with our motto - “One Team, One Goal” in providing the best educational opportunity for our students. We worked endlessly last year to provide opportunities to educate your children in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. As more people get vaccinated and maintain CDC guidelines regarding personal care, we will see less restrictions and therefore in-person learning.
Through the use of our ESSER monies, we have been able to hire ELA and Math coaches for our schools, interventionists, and a Social Emotional Learning coordinator to provide the absolute best opportunities for learning. I am very excited about the future of BCSS, not only with the new opportunities in the classrooms, but with the purchase of new air conditioning for the BHS gymnasium, the Gayle Jenkins auditorium at Central elementary, and many classrooms at BHS. We are also re-roofing Byrd and Central elementary. These improvements will only enhance the learning environment for our students.
We will continue to work to improve the academic success of our students through implementing meaningful professional development for our teachers, aligning our curriculum with state standards, and increasing classroom resources. We will continue to work on equitable access to technology and internet services for all.
We have been challenged like never before in the past 18 months, but our dedication and commitment to our children of this district will not waiver. Working as “One Team, One Goal” we will emerge as a better district that we can all be proud of and support.
