THERE IS NO SCHOOL FRIDAY, APRIL 18 (UNUSED SNOW DAY)
 
District Announcements
IMPORTANT REQUEST from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Education Innovation
In order to take action on technical readiness online assessment preparation, take local steps to maximize the impact of current funds, and make the case to connect every teacher and student in Arizona to high-speed Internet, we need to understand what bandwidth is currently available in the classroom at our schools.

To do this quickly and easily, from March 10 to April 18, 2014, we are partnering with nonprofit EducationSuperHighway to complete an Arizona Internet School Speed Test.

Our partnership will allow you and Arizona to easily crowd-source data from any in-school staff member using a free and easy to use online application that measures how much Internet speed is available to classroom devices.

This data will support network planning, demonstrate the need for increased funding, and support district readiness for the new online assessment program.

Starting March 6, any person on a school network can go to http://partners.schoolspeedtest.org/arizona.html and take a free School Speed Test in less than a minute.

For more information on the project, please refer to this very informative FAQ:

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SPEEDTEST SHOULD ONLY BE TAKEN WHILE ON THE BRUSD NETWORK TO YIELD ACCURATE RESULTS.

AIMS Is Around the Corner
Dear Parents:

We are anxious to begin the celebration of AIMS testing. Our students are prepared and ready to show the State what an awesome job our teachers have done in preparing our students for AIMS. Below is the schedule for AIMS:
  • Tuesday, April 8th - Writing (5-6 grade) Science (4th grade)
  • April 15th - 17th - Reading and Math (4th - 6th grade)
It is extremely important that your child arrives to school on time. Testing begins at 8:00 a.m. Students who need to leave before completing a section of testing are ineligible to continue that testing section when they return to school. If your child is sick, please do not send them to school. Encourage your child to do their very best as testing can be quite stressful for some students. Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep and eats a well balanced breakfast each day.

BRMS is in need of number two testing pencils. Donations are greatly appreciated. If you have any questions regarding testing, please contact me.

Sincerely,
Alicia Phillips
