Guidelines & Application
Spring 2016 Assessment Results ReleasedM-STEP
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.
We are now using the online payment service, MySchoolBucks®, to accept payments for Chromebook insurance, the optional purchase of messenger bags for use with the Chromebooks, and payments for Student Parking Passes at the high school. There are no additional fees to use this service.

SMOKE DETECTORS SAVE LIVES!
Smoke Alarms should be installed inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level. Smoke alarms should be connected so when one sounds, they all sound. Most homes do not have this level of protection.
Roughly 3 out of 5 fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms or the alarms are not working.
Replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.
You should replace batteries every 6 months. A good time to do that is when you change the time
on your clocks.
