This is Principal Collington from Berea Middle School. I pray and hope that all of you are safe and well. I wanted to give you an update on E-Learning. Packets for April 1-10 will be available for students who DO NOT have internet access or a Chromebook. I want to advise that this is the LAST time that the district will be printing off packets of assignments. Anything after April 10 will have to be accessed on the Chrome Book. Just a reminder..you can go to any school parking lot and use the Wi-Fi to download your work to the Chrome Book. Once you download it, you can work on it from home without the internet. There are also buses parked in areas across the community at food feeding sites where you can use internet from 10am-Noon. A list of those feeding sites are listed on our webpage. Please make sure your child is completing this work. If your chrome book is in repair, I suggest that you go to any of the Career Centers for assistance. Please make sure that you go on your teacher’s webpage and get assignments. This work will be graded so it is important that students complete ALL of their teacher’s assignments including related arts. If you need help, your teachers are here to assist via email or phone that is listed on their webpage. If I can be of assistance, please let me know. Again, be safe and we hope to see you soon.

Below is the link to our School Report Card, released October 1, 2019 by the State Department of Education. Based on a number of factors, each school in the state has been rated as excellent, good, average, below average, or unsatisfactory.
These report cards factor in multiple data points, test scores and surveys. The report attempts to measure a school’s academic achievement, student progress, college and career readiness and school climate. The reports will also include data on English Learners’ Progress, Student Safety, and Financial information. High School reports will factor in graduation rates.
