Georgia Milestones Re-Test Information

Decatur County Schools is a Strategic Waiver System, which allows our system to waive specific state board rules. In our current strategic waiver, we chose to waive O.G.C.A 20-2-283 & 20-2-284. This waiver allows us as a system not to retest students for the 2017-2018 school year. The wavier also allows us to be able to use other vital information from your child’s entire school year and not only state assessment scores in the promotion and retention policy for the 2017-2018 school year.

Decatur County Canceled, Wednesday January 17th

Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our students, all schools in Decatur County will be canceled tomorrow, Wednesday January 17th, for students and staff due to the possibility for icy and unsafe road conditions during the morning hours. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but the weather conditions tomorrow are too questionable at this time to jeopardize the safety of our students or our staff. 

We will be back to our normal schedule Thursday January 18th. 

Georgia Parent Survey

Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey is also modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone or tablet. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, school administrators should consider scheduling dates and times to allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school. All parents should be encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.

BMS Homecoming Dance
September 23, 2017
Homecoming is a special night for BMS students; we hope to maintain the integrity and formality of this special occasion by implementing a respectable and appropriate dress code. Bainbridge Middle School  will enforce the dress code that is found in the student handbook and on the BMS website.
Student safety is the primary concern when it comes to students coming and going at Homecoming.  ONLY BAINBRIDGE MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS WILL BE PERMITTED TO ATTEND THE HOMECOMING DANCE. Please be reminded that once a student(s) leave the Homecoming dance and/or school grounds, he/she will not be permitted to re-enter the dance.
