FOCUS

FOCUSing on Student Need at BMCMS

During the 2015-2016 school year, we have taken steps to address student achievement at B. Michael Caudill Middle School.  We want all of our students to both perform at the proficient/distinguished level as well as show expected growth throughout the course of the school.  Our FOCUS program is one of the ways we are addressing student achievement.  Using student multiple data points to identify students’ needs, students are enrolled in a specific FOCUS class that addresses reading and math skill.  We have four intervention FOCUS classes that  blend together teacher directed instruction with computer-based instructional programs (i.e., Odyssey Math and Reading Plus) to address reading and math skills.  We also have skills-based enrichment FOCUS classes where students explore different aspects of literature-drama, journalism, economics, forensic science and engineering.  Several factors determine student scheduling/placement.  First, as noted above, using multiple data points, student placement addresses student need.  Second, we ensure that that students have access to all of our Related Arts offerings.
