BES Annual Title I Meeting Announcement


Solar Eclipse

On Monday, August 21, 2017, we will experience a solar eclipse of the sun. The eclipse will begin around 1:00 p.m. and peak around 2:40 p.m. It will be a phenomenal event, and perhaps one that we will never experience again in our lifetime.

Each school will provide students with meaningful learning opportunities to help them learn about the eclipse. Because the eclipse will pose some safety challenges, anyone planning to view it should wear a pair of solar viewing glasses. We have purchased every student a pair of solar viewing glasses.

We will not have early release for students; however, we will make every attempt to ensure students are wearing their solar viewing glasses and enjoy this once-in-a
lifetime event! Below are our dismissal times:

  • If you are anxious about your student’s test, it’s ok but try to keep cool around your student; you don’t want them to get anxious about their test too.
  • ENCOURAGE your student to do well but don’t pressure him/her. You may stress them out. It is important for your student to stay relaxed for the test.
  • Keep a positive attitude about test.
  • Make sure your student gets enough sleep (8 hours minimum) on the night before the test.

Peach County School System Transitions to Peach County Charter School System
The Georgia Department of Education presented school districts in Georgia with three (3) options for use of greater flexibility to improve student achievement.  The options allowed school districts to operate as one of the following types of school systems:
1. IE² System
2. Charter System
3. Status Quo System
After considerable research, attending numerous workshops and numerous board meeting presentations on each of the options, Peach County Board of Education (the “Board”) decided that the Charter System was the best option for Peach County Schools.  The Board unanimously approved the Charter System option on June 2, 2015.
