Green Mountain Transit understands how hard it is to manage transportation for your children during summer break. For the second year we are offering a Youth Summer Fun Wristband which offers UNLIMITED bus service for children ages 7-17 from for only $25!
That's more than two months for the price of one! This wristband gives children access to convenient, safe, reliable transportation to sports and summer programs, museums, parks, beaches, friends, family and much more. The best part is you gain the freedom and independence you’ve been looking for.
For more information on this program or to purchase your pass, visit us at
CCTAride.org or call the main office at 802-864-2282.
Parking in a Disabled Parking spot without proper tags or license plates, even for a couple minutes, will be reported to the police.
We have many disabled children who need to come and go during the school day.
When picking up or dropping off children, please park by the curb behind the SCHOOL BUS ONLY sign. Thank-you!
UPDATE ON MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH
FOR FUTURE YEARS
While a more detailed plan will be forthcoming with Spring Report Cards, we are able to provide the following details now about math in Burlington schools. It is important to note that this plan is predicated on the budget passing on March 1, 2016, as some aspects of this hinge on increased middle school math staffing.
Moving forward, next year, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders will all be using the Eureka Math curriculum; a Common Core aligned curriculum that is being used K-8 in our schools. In addition, in 8th grade, students will have the option of choosing an Algebra Seminar that will meet every other day in place of an exploratory or unified arts class. More details about this, including the expectations for the seminar and for moving into Geometry in the 9th grade will be sent home to families with Spring Report Cards.
At the high school level, BHS will use the high school Eureka materials as one of the resources to develop Common Core aligned courses. This alignment will be phased in as follows:
- 2017-2018 for Algebra I
- 2018-2019 for Geometry
- 2019-2020 for Algebra II
Harassment, Hazing and Bullying Policy and Procedures
The most notable change in the new policy is that it combines three distinct policies into one and offers related procedures, thus providing a thorough and consistent approach to addressing incidents of harassment, hazing and bullying. Burlington School District Director of Equity Henri Sparks met with the District's attorneys and recommended minor changes to the state's model policy specific to the needs of Burlington Schools.
BSD Staff training is scheduled to begin in August, with training continuing throughout the school year for students, parents and community members.
