2016 SAT results graphic

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.

    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.
