Dear Parents/Guardians:


It is that time of the year where we greatly focus on student achievement testing. This year, all Kindergarten through 4th grade students will take Scantron on Tuesday, April 24 through Friday, May 4, 2018. Although only two computer labs will be used for testing, it is imperative that all students are in class by 8:00 am. Students and teachers have worked so hard all year. In order to increase the opportunities for students to do their best, we need your help. Please ensure that your child gets a good night’s rest and encourage him/her to do their very best each day of testing.


Bullock County School District is in the final stage of gathering artifacts and data to apply for district accreditation. The AdvancED Accreditation Team will be in the school district on Monday, April 30, 2018 through Thursday, May 3, 2018.
