The Bibb County School System is conducting Child Find for the 2017-2018 school year. Child Find is a program by the Alabama State Department of Education and the Department of Rehabilitation Services to locate, identify and evaluate children with disabilities from 3 to age 21. Referrals may be made at any time throughout the school year. For more information about Child Find, contact Evon Blake, Special Education Coordinator, at 205-926-9881 ext. 6022.
Students in Alabama Public Schools are getting additional help to succeed in life through the implementation of a statewide pilot program called PASS (Preparing Alabama Students for Success). Funding is provided by the Alabama Legislature in an attempt to improve the education level of our work force throughout the state. Bibb County School system is pleased to be the recipient of such funds to develop a local initiative to help improve graduation rates in Bibb County.
The P.A.S.S. Initiative is built around the four cornerstones of academics, attendance, discipline and safety. Funding will allow local schools to develop, sustain and/or facilitate a comprehensive prevention and intervention program for students who are “at risk” of failure.
This initiative is intended to:
Please join our school system in making this program a success. If you have a child or grandchild in school, ensure that they attend and study daily. If you belong to a local business or civic organization, seek out ways to partner with our school system by adopting a school or volunteering time and resources. The students in our schools today will be the work force and leaders of our state tomorrow. An investment in our students is an investment in our future.
