  • One-2-Web Student & Parent Information Now Available

    District 27J is moving to a One-2-Web platform for instruction and learning for our students to ensure they have access to the tools and resources essential to learning for 2039 and beyond.  All students at BHS will be issued Chromebooks enabling them to access all educational tools inside the classroom as well as at home. Students will NOT be issued textbooks in most of the core content classes, as all of the materials for these classes is being migrated to ditial resources in 27J.  Technology will be used when it is the best educational tool for the learning situation. Teachers will still use the best research based instructional practices to expose students to a variety of learning experiences in order to prepare them for post secondary readiness.

    Chromebooks will be issued to students starting on August 14th in their first hour classes.  Any student who does not have a first hour class can go to the presentation room on August 14th & 15th during their lunches or off hours to get one issued to them.

    A $55 per year fee for use, maintenance, insurance and licensing will be assessed to all students.  To offset this fee, many core class fees have been eliminated or reduced. Detailed information on the 27J issued chromebooks will be available the first week in August.  This will include information on chromebook use and care as well as damage/repair processes and procedure. We will send a notice to families via School Messenger once this information is available.

    CLICK HERE to view the One-2-Web Student Guide and FAQ sheet for detailed information about the use, care and expectations for using Chromebooks in District 27J.

  • Board of Education recognizes Reaching Out "Apprentice" Award recipients

    Everyone who has started a position or occupation begins as an Apprentice. That person usually has the knowledge of a subject, but actually learning the skills of the trade and the work environment is a new learning curve for that individual. Learning those subtle proficiencies that are needed to complete a project or interact with other people or students. The apprentice has learned from the master therefore can use those learned skills in other projects that will come in the future of the apprentice.


    With 27J’s “construction” theme for this school-year’s Reaching Out Awards, the Board of Education recognized employees who are new to the district or new to a different job position since July 1, 2017.
