2020-21 Parent Commitment
Mission Statement: The mission of Brighter Choice for Girls is to ensure that our scholars have the same opportunities for future success as scholars attending the best public school in the region. The three significant components to achieving their mission are: Exemplary instruction; development of social, behavioral, and organizational skills; and education beyond the basics.
The faculty at Brighter Choice for Girls will:
- Agree with the mission statement of the school and will do their part to assist in its success.
- Arrive to school each day at 7:30 am, stay each day until 3:30 pm and only miss school in unavoidable circumstances.
- Always teach the best way they know how and will do whatever it takes for scholars to learn.
- Promise to communicate regularly with parents and be available either in person or by phone within 24 hours of a parent's request to speak with them.
- Assign productive, worthwhile homework.
- Strive to form meaningful and positive relationships with scholars.
- Be relentless in improving the performance of their scholars and ensuring the success of the BCCS mission statement.
- Always protect the safety, interest and rights of all individuals.
- Accept responsibility for the success of all their scholars.
- I agree with the mission statement of the school and will do my part to assist in its success.
- I will ensure that my daughter arrives to school each day by 7:30 am, and stays each day until 3:30 pm and only misses school in unavoidable circumstances. I understand that if my daughter fails to attend school on a regular basis that the school will notify CPS and that my daughter may be at risk of promotion to the next grade level.
- I understand that bringing my daughter late to school or picking my daughter up early for reasons other than a medical appointment is unacceptable. I will make every attempt to schedule appointments during school breaks, first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid missing too much school time.
- I will send my daughter to school each day in a complete and clean uniform.
- I understand that my daughter must follow all Brighter Choice rules to protect the safety, interests and rights of all individuals in the classroom. I am ultimately responsible for the actions of my daughter.
