Title I Parent Survey Online Survey

May, 2018

Federal support for education comes to our school in several ways.  One type of support is through Title I funds.  Title I funding supports our school in multiple ways including: reading and math programs, interventions, technology for our students and smaller teacher to student ratios.  In addition, Title I helps to support parent engagement and family activities at our school, such as the BES Curriculum Night, One to One Reading, and BES Family Nights.

Each year we evaluate our growth as a school academically, and in relation to the services we provide for our students and families.   To assist us in the process of improving our family / school relationships and programs, we would like your feedback. We ask you to complete the following short survey, using the attached google document. 

Thank you in advance for your time and support.

Boone County Schools have a great team working tirelessly to make decisions on closing or delaying school, always keeping the safety of our students as the top priority.  As early as 3:00 a.m., if snow, freezing rain, sleet or other dangerous precipitation presents our Director of Transportation and Assistant Superintendent for Operations set out to inspect the road conditions. They drive designated routes, checking the roadways that are typically the most dangerous when snow covered.  The team considers safe travel not only on streets but sidewalks, parking lots, and  driveways.  Other conditions to consider include the outside temperature, wind chill factor and the amount of precipitation fallen or falling. The Assistant Superintendent for Operations contacts the county public works department to check on road clearing progress.  Once enough information is gathered and shared with the Superintendent the team focuses on one question:  Would you feel safe transporting students in a school bus in the current or predicted conditions?
