BIMAS Parent Letter
October 4, 2022
In our continuing efforts to support the well-being of all our students, teachers will be completing a universal assessment of behavioral health for all students. The assessment consists of a brief rating scale that will be completed by each child’s teachers. The universal assessment will help our teachers to understand the needs of all our students and to make effective plans at the grade level, class level, and individual level.
It is important that your child feels that academic learning is their focus at school and that the adults they work with each day are doing all they can to create a safe and supportive environment.
If you would like more information about the universal assessment, please call Bianca Chivers-White, Principal at 803-980-2040 or Dr. Nancy Turner, Director of Mental Health at 803-981-1397.
This assessment is optional, but we hope you will allow your child’s teacher to complete it to help us gain additional insight into their needs. If you do not want an assessment completed on your child, please access the Opt Out Form on our school website. If you have difficulty accessing the form, please contact (803)980-2040.
Bianca Chivers-White, Principal
