  • Dear Brighton High School Families, 

     

    In April, students in Colorado public schools will complete state testing. 9th grade students will take the PSAT9, 10th grade students will take the PSAT10, 11th grade students will complete the SAT and 11th grade Science CMAS assessment (The Colorado Measures of Academic Success). Please visit our school website for more information https://www.sd27j.org/domain/2711. Beginning with the class of 2021 students may obtain their Graduation Demonstration by scoring a 470 in English and a 500 in Math on their SAT. 


    11th grade students completing the SAT have the option to also complete the additional Essay portion of the SAT by signing up at www.collegeboard.org by February 18, 2020. Some Colleges and Universities require the optional essay portion of the exam and we encourage students to research their College to determine if it is an entrance requirement.

     

    10th and 11th grade students can also elect to complete the Student Data Consent From, by completing this form prior to testing, students will have the opportunity to connect with potential College and Scholarship opportunities. Sign up by visiting the assessment page of the BHS website and completing the Student Data Consent Form by March 31, 2020. 

     

    Each year, parents consider whether or not to have their students participate in state assessments.  Prior to the assessment window, we ask that you consider the following information as part of your decision process.  School District 27J is in the business of educating students. We are preparing our students to have the knowledge and skills for their future college and career choices. The results from the CMAS, PSAT, and SAT assessments provide:

    • Valuable information about student achievement toward grade level expectations
    • Evidence of student growth from one school year to the next
    • Evidence of the skills and competencies necessary for college and career readiness

    The results of the assessment are utilized by the School District 27J Community in the following ways:

    • Students and parents can identify areas of strength and improvement 
    • High School students can use the PSAT and SAT results to support decisions around high school course selections including advanced coursework options
    • District-level administration utilizes the results to determine the effectiveness of curriculum and instructional practices which support decisions that are made with regard to professional development and the use of resources.
    • State determines the school performance framework and rating

     

    As provided by Colorado State Law, parents are allowed to excuse their child from taking CMAS, PSAT and SAT. If you choose to excuse your child from participating in state assessments please complete the link here before April 1, 2020: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeWRLOU_F8FgLKi4zAuVDyZq6ezYky8FNM02PtNGzgt4ARytQ/viewform

     

    Thank you in advance for your support!  If you have additional questions, please contact Jenn Minor, School Assessment Coordinator, jminor@sd27j.net or 303-655-4151.

    Estimadas familias de la Preparatoria Brighton, 

     

    En abril, los estudiantes en las escuelas públicas de Colorado completarán la prueba estatal. Los estudiantes del noveno grado tomarán la prueba PSAT9,  el décimo grado tomará la prueba PSAT10, el undécimo grado SAT y la prueba estatal CMAS de ciencias (CMAS - Medidas de los logros Académicos en Colorado).  Por favor visite nuestro sitio web para más información https://www.sd27j.org/domain/2711. Para los estudiantes que se graduarán en el 2021 ellos deberán demostrar en su prueba SAT una puntuación de 470 en inglés y 500 en matemáticas.


    Los estudiantes del undécimo grado que tomen SAT tienen la opción de hacer la porción adicional de redacción en SAT al inscribirse a:  www.collegeboard.org. Algunas de las universidades de dos años y las de 4 exigen que tomen la porción de reacción y animamos a los estudiantes a que investiguen en la universidad a la que quieren ir para determinar si esta prueba es obligatoria para su ingreso. 

     

    El alumnado del 10 y 11 puede elegir completar la Forma de Permiso para la obtención de datos del estudiante, antes de tomar la prueba, ellos tendrán la oportunidad de conectarse con la universidad a la que potencialmente quieren asistir y también tener la oportunidad para obtener becas. El estudiante debe registrarse en la página de evaluaciones en el sitio web de BHS para completar la forma de permiso para la obtención de datos del estudiante.

     

    Cada año, los padres pueden considerar si el estudiante participa en las pruebas estatales o no. Antes del período de evaluaciones, les pedimos que consideren la información siguiente como parte de su decisión. El Distrito Escolar 27J está en el negocio de educar a los estudiantes. Los estamos preparando para que tengan los conocimientos y las aptitudes para las opciones futuras de sus estudios universitarios o de una carrera técnica. Los resultados de  CMAS, PSAT, y SAT proporcionan lo siguiente:

    • Información valorable sobre el aprovechamiento del estudiante que es esperado al nivel de grado
    • Evidencias del crecimiento académico del estudiante de un año al otro
    • Evidencias de las aptitudes y competencias necesarias para demostrar que está preparado para la universidad y/o una carrera técnica 

    Los resultados de la evaluación son utilizados entre la comunidad del Distrito Escolar 27J de estas formas: 

    • Los estudiantes y los padres pueden identificar las áreas fuertes del estudiante y las áreas donde tienen que mejorar 
    • Los estudiantes de la prepa pueden usar los resultados de PSAT y SAT para decidir los cursos que deben tomar incluyendo los cursos avanzados. 
    • La administración a nivel del distrito utiliza los resultados para determinar la eficiencia del plan de estudios y las prácticas de enseñanza para apoyar las decisiones tomadas en cuanto a la capacitación profesional y el uso de recursos 
    • El estado determina el rendimiento de la escuela y la clasificación 

     

    La ley del estado de Colorado le permite a los padres que excusen a sus hijos de las pruebas CMAS, PSAT y SAT. Si ustedes eligen que sus hijos no participen en las evaluaciones estatales por favor hagan clic en este enlace:: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeWRLOU_F8FgLKi4zAuVDyZq6ezYky8FNM02PtNGzgt4ARytQ/viewform

  • Attention Students:

    Brighton High School has a new policy that you need to be aware of:

     

    • Beginning on Tuesday, October 15th, students will no longer be able to re–enter the building, until the bell rings. (This is in effect, every period of the day)
    • Students who have a hall pass, completed and signed by a teacher, will be allowed entrance but must have it verified, by a campus supervisor at the kiosk. 
    • If you are tardy, you must check in to the kiosk. The campus supervisor will give you a tardy pass but…3 tardies = 1 detention.
    • Please make sure that you are prepared for the weather before you exit the building! 

     

    This policy is subject to change as deemed necessary.

    TOBACCO, NICOTINE AND CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE DELIVERY MECHANISMS 

    School districts are required by law to have a policy prohibiting student use or possession of tobacco at school and in related locations as described in Superintendent Policy JK – Student Code of Conduct. Parents or students who have concerns or questions about student tobacco, nicotine and drug issues are encouraged to contact a school counselor or mental health provider, school administration, or District administration to discuss resources that may be available to assist them. 

    1. Violations. State and federal law and District Policy prohibit the use or possession of any tobacco or nicotine product or controlled substance on school property. This includes marijuana, even if legally purchased through retail establishments or prescribed. 

    The use or possession of any delivery mechanism or device that could be used for the consumption, ingestion, inhalation or application of tobacco or nicotine products or controlled substances is prohibited on school grounds. This includes without limitation pipes, hookah pens, vaporizers, and electronic cigarettes. In addition to violating District Policy, such devices compromise the health and well-being of students and staff members, and their use on school grounds is disruptive to the learning environment. Because such devices may be used with either tobacco or nicotine products or with controlled substances, disciplinary consequences more severe than are imposed for tobacco/nicotine products are warranted. 

    1. Consequences and Interventions. The typical progression of interventions for violations of 

    this policy will be as follows: 

    2.1 1st Offense – Education about the policy should be provided and student may be suspended out of school for up to one (1) day. Alternative to suspension opportunities may be considered by school administration as described in District Policy JKD – Student Due Process. The device will be confiscated and will only be returned to parents upon request.

    2.2 2nd Offense – Student may be suspended for up to three (3) days in or out of school. Alternative to suspension opportunities may be considered by school administration as described in District Policy JKD – Student Due Process. The device will be confiscated.

    2.3 3rd Offense – Student may be suspended up to five (5) days. 

    1. Using, possessing or being under the influence of tobacco, nicotine or controlled substances are separate offenses that may warrant discipline in addition to the consequences described above and as set forth in the applicable District Policies 

    Adopted: August 2, 2019

  • 2019-2020 Updated Cell Phone Policy

    We believe students should be fully engaged in their learning.  For that reason, neither students nor staff should be using cell phones during class for non-academic reasons.  Teachers are expected to address this off-task behavior just as they would any other off-task behavior by utilizing the steps outlined below.

     

    District 27J Cell phone Policy - JICI

    Use of Cell Phones on School Grounds:

    Student use/possession of a cell phone depends on the grade level of the student.  The following categories outline the grade levels and authorized use/possession of cell phones by students. No student, at any grade level, shall use a cell phone or electronic device to engage in, promote or facilitate any other conduct that violates the student code of conduct, other superintendent policies or regulations, or state or federal law. If the building principal or designee believes a student’s possession or use of a cell phone or other electronic devices may involve a violation of the law, the building principal or designee may also refer the matter to

    law enforcement.

     

    1. Elementary Schools: Student use of cell phones is prohibited.  If a student is asked to carry a cell phone by parents (ie the student walks home and phone is for safety), the phone must be kept in a secure location until the end of the day.
    2. Middle Schools:  Students may use cell phones before and after school, as long as they do not create a distraction or a disruption.  Use of cell phones during the school day is prohibited and they will be powered completely off, concealed and secured.
    3. High Schools: Students may use cell phones before and after school, as long as they do not create a distraction or disruption.  Students may also use cell phones during passing periods and during the lunch break, as long as they do not create a distraction or a disruption or cause the student to be tardy for the next period.  During the entire class period, cell phones will be secured in lockers, backpacks, or vehicles.




    Brighton High School Cell Phone Policy Expectations

    Cell phone usage during class time will not be permitted at Brighton High School.  All cell phones must be turned off or silenced and put away in lockers, backpacks or vehicles.. Cell phones pose a distraction to the classroom instruction and student’s ability to concentrate and focus on the learning at hand. 

     

    1st Offense - Cell phone confiscated by teacher/staff member and not returned to the student until the end of the class period.  Teacher/staff member calls parents/guardian to inform them of the incident & documents in IC.

     

    2nd Offense - Cell phone confiscated by teacher/staff member and taken to the main office to be held until the end of the day.  Student can pick up cell phone at the end of the day from the main office. Teacher/Staff member calls parents/guardian  to inform them of the incident & documents in IC.

     

    3rd Offense - Cell phone confiscated by teacher/staff member and taken to the main office for the parent to pick up.  A discipline referral is submitted to Administration through Infinite Campus for discipline action. Administration will call parents & document in IC.
