Dress Code at BPS

At the October 18th school board meeting, the board approved a change to the dress code policy in the Bedford Junior High School Handbook. Previously, the handbook included "No leggings or pajama pants."

The board approved new language about leggings rather than prohibiting the wearing of leggings altogether. The new wording will read, "Leggings and yoga pants may be worn with appropriately modest coverings."

Many people attended the board meeting and spoke about dress code issues in our district. The board would like to thank them for taking the time to mention the variety of concerns that they had during the public commentary period. Most of the people gathered left after that commentary period and did not stay for the board discussion when they reached that item on the agenda. We would like them to know that their concerns were heard and discussed for some time.

Immediately following the wording change approval, the board directed the superintendent to convene a committee to revamp the entire dress code K-12. Input will be gathered from parents and students. A survey form will be available shortly so that opinions from all can be taken into consideration as the dress code is reevaluated. Look for more information about that by the end of the week.

Update: Committee being formed and survey being drafted. Stay tuned!

Spring 2016 Assessment Results Released

In the second year of the M-STEP online assessments at Bedford, we have exceeded the state averages in 15 of the 16 categories...we were just shy of the state average in 5th grade math.

Last Spring, the juniors took the SAT for the first time. (Previously, the juniors took the ACT test.) Our juniors averaged 1010.4 while the rest of the state was at 1001.

As with any summative standardized test, this is one snapshot of how our students perform. We use data generated by these tests, in conjunction with other student assessment data gathered throughout the year, to look for ways to improve. Bedford's Balanced Assessment Team and school improvement efforts continuously focus on ways to improve the education for each of our students.
