Bureau Valley School Board
MANLIUS — The Bureau Valley School Board took action on the following items at its meeting Oct. 15:
• Heard from Bureau Valley South Principal Kristal LeRette that the school did not make Adequate Yearly Progress in reading, and is focusing on its subgroups of students who are low income or have special needs. Interim Superintendent Dennis Thompson said that just because the school didn’t make AYP, it didn’t mean good teaching wasn’t going on. He encouraged people to look at more than just the group score. Board member Don DeWaele said he was proud of the staff, and that making AYP was a necessary burden. “It’s a load on your back that you have to constantly be looking at,” he said. “I hate it, but we can’t get away from it.” BVS’ percentage of low income students has increased from 31.9 percent in 2006 to 54.3 percent in 2012.
• Heard from Bureau Valley North Principal Sandra Beitsch that the school made AYP.
