The next Board of Education regular meeting is scheduled for:
Please be advised of a new law in California (Assembly Bill 354) requiring ALL STUDENTS entering the 7th through 12th grade in the 2013-14 school year. Students entering these grade levels are now required to receive a booster shot against pertussis (also known as Tdap). Pertussis or Whooping Cough is widespread.
If your child 10 years and older has not yet received the ‘Tdap’ pertussis booster shot, please contact your doctor or health department. Getting a booster shot now will protect your child against the ongoing threat of pertussis. Adults are also advised to get a pertussis booster shot, if they haven’t already, to protect themselves, their families, and their students.
Buttonwillow School fosters a positive learning environment, mainly through the individual attention afforded students through small class size, dedicated faculty, bilingual instructional aide staff, co-operative parents, and a caring community.
With continuous curriculum planning and modifications, ongoing staff development for improved instruction, and a commitment by all faculty and staff to meet the needs of our students, we at Buttonwillow School will continue to work exceedingly hard to provide a quality standards-based educational program for all of our students.
Buttonwillow Union School District Mission Statement
It is the mission of the Buttonwillow Union School District to provide a high quality, academic standards - based education to all of our students, and to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of each of our students. We believe that all children can learn, and that a high quality education delivered in a nurturing manner is key to each child's success.
