Tracking Student Illness
BC parents and students are reminded that, in the event that a student feels they are too ill to continue the school day, they should come to the Clinic to see our School Nurse, Mrs. Tracey Diddle, RN. The Clinic is located in the BC Attendance & Discipline Office.
We are concerned that too often, students contact their parents on their own to be “signed-out”. This prevents our nurse from having accurate health data for our school. It also keeps the student from receiving the EXCUSED absence on their attendance record that Mrs. Diddle can provide.
Drug Free Collier Assembly
Friday, March 6th, all BC students will receive a presentation brought to us via Drug Free Collier. Our students will learn the story of two innocent 20 year old victims of a DUI accident from the perspective of the victim’s parent and the driver responsible. The presentation provides a powerful message which we hope will influence our students to make good decisions.
We will also have a parent presentation, which is open to the public, Thursday evening in our auditorium. The presentation will begin at 6:30 PM. Doors open at 6:00 PM.
P.E.R.T. (Post Secondary Education Readiness Test) for RISING SOPHOMORES AND JUNIORS interested in taking Dual Enrollment courses in the Fall will be on Thursday, April 9 here at BCH. During course selection meetings with counselors, students will receive information on how to sign up for this testing. It is EACH STUDENT’S responsibility to follow the directions for signing up.
This multiple choice, computer-adaptive test is used by all 28 members of the Florida College System. The purpose of the PERT is to assess academic skills, verify college readiness and determine course placement. In high school, the PERT score is used to show college readiness or a need for further instruction. The Florida legislature decided that students will take the test in 11th grade. If test results show a need for further learning, students will be placed in a remediation course in 12th grade. Achieving the cut score or completing a remediation course is required for high school graduation.
