Winter Weather Information

It's finally winter! The cold temperatures create a good time to remind parents about a few things:
1. If school is cancelled due to inclement weather, the cancellation will be found on the district's website, social media pages, and on the local news outlets. If you see a social media friend post that school has been cancelled, please check one of the official sites to confirm. Those sites can be found by clicking these links:  Facebook or Twitter.
2. The district does use a delay system on occasion. If a delay is called and you need additional information, please click HERE.
3. This year, the district has the opportunity to use Non-Traditional Instructional Days (NTI: Madison). NTI days will be announced in the same way that cancelled or delayed days are announced. If you have not received information from your child's school, please contact them as soon as possible. Additional NTI: Madison can be found HERE.

Online Parent Tools

We have added a folder under School Information (on the left hand side of the main school web page) that parents may find useful.  It has instructions on how to access Infinite Campus/Parent Portal, CompassLearning and Reading Plus.  We encourage you to check out this information.

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.   

Individual Learning Plan (ILP)

The Individual Learning Plans or ILPs for Kentucky's 6th grade through 12th grade students are changing how student prepare themselves for their future.  The ILP has many features and resources that involve students on a variety of levels:

  • Exploring careers beginning in the 6th grade
  • Finding careers that match their skills and interests
  • Creating education plans
  • Establishing personal goals and revisiting these as they progress through school
  • Creating, maintaining and changing resumes
  • Tracking and reflecting on their community services experiences, work experiences, career-planning activities, and extra-curricular and organization activities
  • Exploring colleges and postsecondary opportunities that match their career, postsecondary and life goals
  • Connecting to the KHEAA.org (Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority) Web site for help with college planning, tuition assistance information and applications
  • Collecting personal information like assessment results, advising activities demographic information and educational history

You can find more information at the Kentucky Department of Education website. 

Non Traditional Instructional Day Information

Students are coming home with information regarding Non Traditional Instructional Days (NTI).  In case of inclement weather, excessive illness or other types of emergencies, the district may choose to close school, but students will have work to do at home to make up for not actually attending school.  A copy of the handout can be accessed here.
