1- BCC - Christian School; Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of
God (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three personsFather, Son, and Holy
Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew
1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His
vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His
Resurrection. (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4), His Ascension to the right hand of God
(Mark 16:19), His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
We believe in the regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the sinfulness of
man and that men are justified by faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by Gods
grace and through faith alone are we saved (John 3:1619, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:89;
Ephesians 2:810; Titus 3:5).
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the
resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation (John
5:2829).
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, 1
Corinthians 12:1213, Galatians 3:2628).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is
enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:1314; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:1920; Ephesians
4:30, 5:18).

2- School vision statement. The BCC School believes that all students are valuable and deserve
a challenge, to be top performers and community leaders.

3- School mission statement. To create a Christ-centered learning atmosphereconducive to


academic excellence, social growth, and spiritual developmentthat will encourage and prepare
students to live successful, productive lives for Christ.

4- Our Motto To Know God and Make Him Known

5- School philosophy statement. Because we believe that every child can learn, we are
committed to excellence in education. We will provide an education that will pave the way to a
future of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in adherence with the biblical mandates found in
Deuteronomy 6:5-9 and Romans 15:4.

6- Student outcomes. All students will acquire the basic skills necessary to be socially and
economically competent. Indicators are as follows:

Students will be able to read, comprehend, and assimilate written materials.


Students will acquire necessary computational skills with and without the use of
computers.
Students will make the arithmetical calculations essential to daily living and to future
employment.

7- Education Plan

Learning goals. Goals to ensure that each student makes adequate academic progress each year.
The goal should be for each student to reach proficiency in a given subject area. Proficiency or
mastery will not just happen; a high level of intentionality and planning is required.

Assessment instruments. In order to facilitate learning goals, it is vitally important to assess


each student to determine the students academic level, and this assessment should, inform the
instructional process. The assessment instrument should serve as a diagnostic tool to identify
deficiencies and skill gaps in order for the student to make the desired academic progress. A
committee selected by the board will interview student and family.

Curriculum. (1) Identify curricular materials and academic programs that serve students. (2)
Identify programs and resources for equipping Christian educators to enhance their teaching ability
highly educate children. (3) Identify resources designed to assist underperforming and low-
achieving students in making academic progress.

Instructional methods. Instructional methodology includes the techniques that teachers will use
to present course content. We will adopt a school-wide methodology for all classes in certain
subjects. In addition, teachers will use various methodologies for individual students, as well as
individual grade instruction. It is very important to remember, however, that children have
different learning styles and learning rates. Teachers also have different teaching styles. The
deciding factor should be what each student needs most.

Program for undereducated students. For the student who is behind academically, the
educational plan will include the goal and the timetable for getting the student to grade level. For
example, if the assessment reveals that the student is performing one year below grade level, a
determination about the length it will take to get the student to grade level. If the goal is for the
student to reach grade level within one year, then the student will have to make two years of
progress for one year of instruction. If the goal is for the student to catch up in two years, then the
student must make a year and a half of progress for each year of instruction. If a student is two
years below grade level and the goal is to have the student at grade level in two years, then the
student will have to make two years of progress for each year of instruction. In other words, the
school will have to determine for each student the desired and anticipated academic progress per
year of instruction. This can also be broken down by quarter or by semester. Such progress will not
just happen. There has to be a high level of intentionality; planning, executing and evaluating.

Program for special-needs students. The school program for special needs students will include
two main components: methods used to identify students with special needs and measures used to
meet the needs of those students. Common examples of special needs are dyslexia, attention
deficit disorder, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. If our school cannot meet the special
needs of a particular child, we will be honest with the parents so that they can find a school that
can. We want to ensure that we can meet students academic and physical needs. If you have a
student, whom you believe may have an educational disability, check with your local school district
for the proper procedures for having the child professionally diagnosed. We will do what we can to
accommodate each students needs.

8- School Accountability

Student assessment. One of the most critical exercises for educating children is assessing their
academic state. Student assessment should identify educational skill gaps and inform the teaching
process. Assessing students formally and informally, individually and by class. The strategic
planning documents will include the plans for formal and informal assessment methods and the
results.

School evaluation and improvement. The schools strategic plan will include school evaluation
documents. The school is in place to meet the educational needs of children, and so it is necessary
to evaluate its success in that endeavor. Some typical areas of evaluation include the following:

Statements of vision, mission, philosophy, and goals

Students with special needs

Curriculum and instruction

Personnel and financial management

Governance structure and function

Communication and public relations

Accountability instruments. Accountability instruments consist of documentation in various areas of


school operations used in compliance with the expectations of various publics. Accountability
documents may fall into several categories depending on the expectations of the school community
and the accountability agent. (See forms section).

9- Advisory Board

Serve as the visionaries for BCC School and the chief facilitators and communicators of the
vision statement.

date of application and priority status.

C. Specific Rules

1. BCC School has no control over student activity that is not school-sponsored; misconduct during
a non-school-sponsored activity may come to the attention of the school authorities and may result
in administration of discipline, including suspension or expulsion.

2. Malicious or careless defacing, damaging, or destroying of school property will result in both
appropriate disciplinary action and the replacement of such property by the student and/or his or
her parents or legal guardian as determined by school board.

3. Conduct and attitude shall be respectful. Disruptions in class, unruly behavior, or repeated
violations of prescribed school policy will result in disciplinary action. See Discipline Section

4. Respect for authority is required. Each student will show respect for any staff member at all
times, in and out of school. Any student who is disrespectful to a staff member(s) will be subject to
disciplinary action, which may include suspension or expulsion.

6
11- Discipline

For the most part, teachers will handle their own discipline situations according to their own
methods and abilities as well as school policies. Disciplinary methods can include, but are not
limited to, having the student miss recess, write an essay or journaling, or stay after school.

When a student is unable to function within the schools discipline guidelines, the teacher
documents the incident and discipline.

A. Level I

A student who interferes with the learning process and the atmosphere of the classroom maybe
placed on Level 1 and, if necessary, be sent immediately to the board member. Next, a conference
will take place between the student, his/her parents and the teacher involved. Then a plan is
implement to help the student correct his/her behavior. The teacher may take disciplinary action
also.

1. Missing recess, field trip, or special activity for a specific period.

2. Doing extra homework (must meet teachers standards).

3. Copying or writing out sentences or passages from a textbook, or other materials, and will be
determined by teacher. (2 Timothy 3:16)

4. Doing other activities according to the teachers discretion as to what will bring about the
needed reconciliation.

In any event, the teacher will contact the parents when the misbehaviors are excessive or the
teacher deems a parent conference necessary.

BCC School is committed to never using work as punishment, since it is our conviction that work is
good. It is essential for students to develop wholesome work ethics and habits. Therefore, our
intention is to use work to help our students develop the self-discipline necessary to live
productively and effectively.

B. Level II

If the Level I plan has not been successful in changing the students behavior, the teacher may call
for a parent/student/board member conference. The parent, teacher, and board member will work
as a team to help the student meet the required standards of behavior. Other staff members
involved with the student may attend the conference.

Teacher/parents/student and board member will develop information about the plan of action,
including time constraints.

C. Level III

If objectives for the student are not meet in the first two levels:

The board member will contact the parent and student, review the students actions, and decide on
one of several options, including punishment (done by parent), disciplinary probation, or
suspension.

1. Disciplinary Probation One or more referrals that are disciplinary and the student will be on
disciplinary probation by the administration. The parent, teacher, and board member including time
constraints and restriction will develop a plan of action. Any violation of this plan will incur further
disciplinary action up to and including Level IV disciplinary action.

7
11- Discipline C. Level III continued

2. Suspension A suspension from school will result in a parent contact and/or conference; a special
counseling program, restriction from all school-sponsored activities, and a deduction of two
percentage points or the equivalent from each final grade for each day of suspension during the
current ten-week quarter. Students are responsible for work during suspension.

D. Level IV

Student behavior that is consistently inappropriate and unacceptable during any activity on or off
campus will incur a request for withdrawal or expulsion for one semester or more.

E. Dismissal

Dismissal refers to disciplinary action taken by the administration to remove a student from the
school. Dismissal is a last resort and the administration uses it only as a last step for students who
do not adhere to the rules of the school.

The dismissal of a student is totally the prerogative of the school administration and does not
require the student or his parents to agree that the action. The notice of dismissal will not be
without the reason for dismissal.

In summary, the administration reserves the right to deal with all actions not covered by
these policies and procedures.

F. Readmission or continued enrollment

Any student expelled from school are not eligible to apply for readmission.

The school reserves the right to deny admission, readmission, or continued enrollment to
any student whose actions demonstrate that it is not in the schools best interest to allow
admission, readmission, or continued enrollment.

Student Pranks

Student pranks that disrupt any aspect of the school program or cause any property damages will
subject the student to serious disciplinary action. The student will also be responsible for any
financial liability resulting from the prank. BCC School reserves the right to deny admission or
continued enrollment to any student whose actions demonstrate that it is not in the schools best
interest to allow admission or continued enrollment.

12- Attendance

ATTENDANCE We believe that regular attendance in classes is essential to the success of a


students school experience. One can never really make up or compensate for absence from class.
Work done to make up what a student missed during absence is primarily an effort to bridge a gap
in classroom experience. When it is necessary for your child to miss school, please call the school
office (346-7140) by 8:00 am on the day of the absence to excuse your child. If we do not receive a call
one will be place to the parent, therefore, it is important that we have current personal and work
numbers. Tardiness without valid reason is not acceptable. All students must participate in
funding events.

There 8 days allotted for absences (any time away from school) if a student is absent
more than 8 days they will need to make up days at the end of school year.

**Communication is key! If you know your student will be absent, please notify the teacher. The
student will be responsible for work missed.

Procedure for Reentering School after an Absence (Excused or Unexcused)

After an absence, a signed note given to the teacher from the parent is required. The board
member(s) have the final authority to excuse an absence.

Make-Up of Missed Work

a. It will be necessary for missed work, including tests, to be made-up before or after school.
Sometimes a student with approval for an absence wishes to take a test or turn in
homework before the absence. This matter is at the discretion of the teacher. If a test is
already available, it is advantageous to both the student and the teacher for the student to
take the test early rather than late.

b. It is the students responsibility to schedule a time for make-up work. All work missed
must be made up within the same number of days the student was absent.

Signing Students Out of School

Signing Students out of school under the following conditions:

a. If the reason is illness, the student must:


(1) Have a fever as determined by the school nurse or teacher.
(2) Be obviously ill, as determined by the best judgment of the teacher.
b. Establish phone contact between the school and parent or legal guardian, and have a
member of the staff verify permission for the student to leave campus. Students must
wait in the area designated by the school for a parent or legal guardian to arrive.
Students may not leave campus during the school day without telephone contact with, or
personal appearance of, the parents or legal guardian. We will not accept notes from home
requesting dismissal of a student unless parent(s) or legal guardian has called. Students
may leave only with their parent(s) or legal guardian, or someone on file. In extreme case,
the administrator can make an exception.

All Students Must Sign In (Students in grades K6 signed in by a parent or an authorized


person) (Middle/High school students can sign themselves in)

14 - Dress Code

It is the desire of BCC SCHOOL that our students live and conduct themselves in a manner that will
be pleasing to God and will glorify the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Standards for appearance
are a means of building character and distinction in the lives of our students. The dress code of
BCC SCHOOL is one of the first, and most tangible, rules of the school to which an entering student
must respond. It not only affects the clothes budget, and the planning and shopping for a
wardrobe, but every school day this rule visibly affects our students. Since human beings are
created in Gods image (Genesis 1:26-27) we need to see ourselves as He sees us. Our outward
appearance is a reflection of the way we view ourselves and how we think God sees us. We want
our students to understand that they are valuable because God created them. (Heartland Christian
School) It is vital that each student wholeheartedly support the dress standards.

When a teacher or the board member observes a student to be in violation of the dress code, the
parents are contacted and if necessary, the student will make any needed alterations. If it is
impossible for the student to go home to change, he/she maybe held out of class for the remainder
of the day. The students grade for each class will reflect their absence.

If a student has violated the dress code, more than six (6) times, the student will be to withdrawn
from school.

School Uniform

Girls and boys

Jeans are acceptable as long as they Do Not have holes or are otherwise unsightly.
(Too tight etc.)
Collared shirts T-shirts are acceptable provided they have no pictures, slogans or
logos. If skin is showing, students will need to tuck in their shirts.

member prior to the meeting to ensure space on the agenda.

5. Complaint or Problem Procedures

Occasionally during the course of the year, misunderstandings or problems will arise between the
teacher and a student, teacher and parent, parent and school, or one of several other possible
areas. Such a misunderstanding often results from lack of communication between those involved.

12
17 - Parent/School Relations continued

At all times, students must conduct themselves in a respectable manner. Griping/whining is not
acceptable! If a student comes home complaining about a discipline policy, parents should follow
this procedure:

a. Give BCC School the benefit of the doubt.


b. Realize that your childs reporting is emotional, and may not contain all the relevant
information.
c. Realize that we have reasons for all rules, and that we enforce them without favor.
d. Support the administration and call us for all the facts.

The administration has adopted a set policy for these situations, complaints and, or problems will
be handled in the way prescribed. (Matthew 18:1517)

(1) All questions, problems, or complaints brought directly to the teacher first, before
anyone else is involved.

13
19 - Program of Instruction

1. Homework assigned to practice a skill the student has.

a. Teachers have their own particular format in homework. Spelling, grammar, and proper
penmanship must meet the required standards. Homework done poorly or carelessly will
not be okay, it will go back to the student and the student will redo the work.
b. Teachers expect all students to turn in assignments completed and on time. No teacher
will allow an assignment required of all students to remain undone by a single student. If
an assignment is not done, the following procedure may be used:
(1) Student sent from class will make up the assignment during class time, receiving a
failing grade for that class period.
(2) Failure to complete an assignment on time will result in a penalty of points taken
off the grade.
(3) Chronic failure to complete homework by a student will require a conference
between teacher, the parent or legal guardian and the board member.
(4) Report poorly done or late assignments to parents.
(5) Students is required to carry assignment verification forms each day to class, that
initialed by the teacher and then verified by the parent(s) or guardian.

2. Report Cards and Grading Procedures

a. See the school calendar for the end of the quarter grading periods. Parents must attend
all report card conferences. If the parent is unable to attend at the designated time, he or
she must call the school to arrange an alternative time.

b. After carefully evaluating a students classroom learning, attitudes, and effort his/her
grades will go on a report card. Please discuss each report with your child carefully.
Remember, however, that grades should be guides to learning rather than goals for learning.
Often, far too much emphasis is on grades. Parents, remember that grades are merely
indications of present achievement and not indications of ones overall ability to learn.

c. Letter grades determined by the following criteria:

A Excellent 94-100
B Good 86-93
C Average 77-85
D Poor 70-76
F Failure 70 and Below

well as an overall grade

e. Any student who has failed to make up daily work or tests by the end of the grading
period will receive an Incomplete (I) on the report card. Any student who does not
make up work because of negligence is an F (70) or his own failing grade average for
the grading period.

19 - Program of Instruction continued

3. Extracurricular Activities

A vital part of school life is its extracurricular activity program. In todays world, the opportunity
that the school provides for social activities outside the normal school day plays an important role
in the growth and development of the students. BCC School is concerned not only with the
intellectual dimension of our students, but also with growth and development spiritually, socially,
and physically.

a. Classroom field trips will be in relation to classroom learning. They are not simply a break
from school. Rather, field trips enhance the educational and social development of the
student.
(1) School time: Most field trips will occur during the school day.
(2) After-school hours: On some special occasions, a field trip may be after school or on a
Saturday. Parents are encouraged to help chaperone field trips.
b. Special Programs and Assemblies will happen from time to time; speakers, films or programs
of significant spiritual, academic, or cultural value. Parents are encouraged to attend these
programs.
c. Teachers with input from students plan weekly chapel topics. Parents and guardians are
invited and encouraged to attend chapel. Daily; praise, prayer & devotion time.
d. Library - Students have the opportunity to make use of the library for both research and
reading for pleasure. The library inventory control requires much time and effort. Parents
and guardians help the school by reminding students to care and return books on time. If a
student has library books out his/her grades will not be available.
e. Puppets and Skits

20 - Health and Safety

In accordance with state laws (of your state), each student must have up-to-date physical records
and required immunizations. These are the responsibility of the parent(s). The school is required
to keep a copy of physicals and immunization records.

A. Infectious Diseases

In the event, an enrolled student or applicant in the process of enrollment has an infectious disease
or to be a carrier thereof, the following will apply:

1. Each case shall be on an individual basis. The decision about admitting or continuing to
enroll an infected student will be a reflection of the behavior, neurologic development, and
physical condition of the student.

The expected types of interaction with others in the school environment and the probability of
contagion will also addressed.

2. The parents or guardians of an infected student are responsible for securing regular
medical evaluations, as determined by the school administrator, to permit a reliable
assessment of any change in the students condition that might affect the schools decision
permitting enrollment or continued attendance.

15
20 - Health and Safety continued

B. Administration of Medicine

The teacher or staff must administer all medication. The student shall deliver the medication,
labeled with his or her name, to the office along with a signed note from the doctor, with directions
of administrating the medicine.

C. Parents Emergency Phone Numbers Required

We request that at least one emergency phone number be on file in the school office. In addition to
the home phone numbers, the school requires a work phone number, cell phone number or the
number of a close friend, neighbor, or relative who is available in the event of a serious problem.

D. Medical Release Form Required

The school must have a medical release form for each student. This form allows physicians to
perform emergency treatment in the event that it is impossible to reach a parent or legal guardian.
Few hospitals or doctors will treat a patient under the age of eighteen (18) without parental
consent and in a serious emergency a medical release could save a life! A school official will only
use this form when a parent or guardian is unavailable. We will make every effort to follow parents
or guardians instructions.

E. Doctor and Dental Appointments

Medical or dental appointments should be outside of regular school hours. If this is not possible,
parents or guardians should notify, in advance, teachers. Generally, appointments during school
hours will be excused absences.
