  • Update - School Safety Information - February 22, 2018

     

    We want to inform all of you that late, yesterday afternoon, a student brought another threatening message to our attention.   A police report has been generated and BHS Admin and Brighton PD are investigating this new incident and at this time have determined that it is not a credible threat.  We will continue to investigate the source of the threat and will hold the person who made the threat accountable.  Any student who is found responsible for making a threat against students, staff or Brighton High School will face serious repercussions up to and including expulsion as well as prosecution to the fullest extent of the law.  Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our students and staff and will always be our highest priority along with the education of your students.  We will conduct school tomorrow as normal.  We will update you as more information becomes available.  Please remind your child that they can report anonymously report anything that concerns or threatens them, their friends, their family or their community through https://safe2tell.org/.

    Parents: and Students:   These are the Spring 2018 state grade-level required assessments and the times and dates they will be administered.  More specific details and class schedules on those dates will be updated as soon as that information comes available.  The assessments are now better aligned for preparation toward college, career, and scholarships.  The SAT is one of the primary required national tests used by colleges and universities for admissions and scholarship eligibility decisions.  The state of Colorado uses the SAT as one of the measures to determine if an 11th grade student is on track academically by grade level.  The PSAT is the preparatory and aligned assessment for both 9th and 10th graders to prepare for taking the SAT in the 11th grade.  The state of Colorado uses the PSAT to determine if a 9th or 10th grade student is on track academically by grade level.   Juniors can also take the PSAT in the fall of their junior year to be considered for the National Merit Scholarship program.  The CMAS Science assessment is the required state assessment specifically designed to determine if an 11th grade student is at grade level in their Science learning.  The results of each test is one piece of data which helps us as a school determine proper student placement in courses, and in large scale – helps us determine if we are on track providing a high quality curriculum to all students.  We look forward to every student doing their absolute best on each assessment.
