Career Pathways Now in High School!á
Career Pathways at the middle school began last year to meet the requirements of Senate Bill 1076 which requires all middle school students to leave middle school with an online career plan. Mrs. Clevenger sees all 8th grade students throughout the year conducting different lessons.
áááá This year, on Wednesdays, we have continued our career planning work with the 8th graders from last year at the high school. We build on what we explored in 8th grade, but we go more in depth.
áááá Eighth graders explore general information to cover the basics such as options other than just four years of college. We explore different careers based on their likes and dislikes, goal setting, discuss certificates and technical schools, two-year and four-year degrees, budgeting money, and outlook of careers. At the end of the year we talk about the requirements of a high school diploma, Bright Futures Scholar, Medallion, and Gold Seal. We also go over vocational classes and general information, focusing on options they may not know about.
áááá In 9th grade, we revisit our 8th grade goals and set new goals for 9th grade, revisit interests and explore careers on new interests, requirements of high school and begin planning all four years of high school with a career in mind. We take a closer look at Bright Futures requirements, begin exploring colleges and tech schools, and begin looking at specific programs.á
áááá This year is definitely going smootherá as students realize I will see them again, and career planning is important for us to continue this work.á
áááá Even with Career Planning required by law, I truly believe we are impacting students' lives, their future, and our community. Think of the changes in our community as we encourage and empower students to reach further!​

Attendance Policy
BCMS Attendance Policy states that if your child is absent from school due to a viable reason such as a doctor/dental visit, death of immediate family member, or legal/court appointment, you must send the proper documentation to the school data processor (Ms. Marian Magnan) or your child's teacher for the absence to be excused. áWithout proper documentation, your child's absence(s) will be marked unexcused. ALL NOTES MUST BE TURNED IN TO THE SCHOOL WITHIN 5 DAYS OF THE ABSENCE.
á
á
We have been asked by theá Macclenny Nursing and Rehab Center that parents not use their driveway or parking lot when dropping off or picking up students.á For the safety of our students, we ask that you use the designated drop-off and pick-up locations at BCMS.á
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
