Photo of Superintendent and NSU President signing documentsWith the stroke of a pen, Bossier Schools Superintendent Scott Smith and Northwestern State University President Dr. Chris Maggio signed an agreement today that paves the way for high school students to attain a college education.

“Imagining the Possibilities” is an initiative between the two educational partners that will enable Bossier Parish students to earn college credit and the possibility of lucrative scholarship packages should they choose to attend NSU.

Students receiving a qualifying score on their ACT test or various Advanced Placement (AP) and College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams will receive academic credit at Northwestern through the “Imagining the Possibilities” initiative.

In addition, scholarship incentives will be made available to Bossier Parish students meeting academic criteria and enrolling in seven majors at NSU, beginning in fall 2018. Those include accounting, biology, business administration, computer information systems, engineering technology, education and nursing. Students interested in other academic areas may also qualify for scholarship packages. 

As part of the agreement, the NSU recruiting team will be conducting visits at all Bossier Parish high schools to present the “Imagining the Possibilities” initiative to juniors and seniors.

“Bossier Schools consistently seeks every opportunity we can provide for our students’ academic success and this initiative with Northwestern goes hand in hand with that,” said Bossier Schools Superintendent Scott Smith. “We are eager for Bossier Parish students to take advantage of this initiative to pursue a college education and potentially save their families thousands of dollars.”

Bossier High School junior Zach Teppenpaw is one young man making his mark in the world of Kung Fu fighting.

His skills in the art of Wushu recently took Teppenpaw to China, where he competed in the World Kung Fu Championship. There, he placed 2nd and 3rd in his division, ranking the Bossier Bearkat among the top in the world.

Teppenpaw, who trains with Dr. Randy Harper, has spent many years practicing to get where he is today. He previously won seven national titles, which earned him a berth in the world competition.

In addition to excelling in martial arts, Teppenpaw also wrestles and placed seventh in the state last year in his weight class. Not only is he an athlete, but he is in Bossier Schools’ Talented Art and Music Programs as well.

Congratulations to Zach Teppenpaw, an accomplished athlete and artist who is making people take notice. Bossier Schools and Bossier High are certainly proud to call him one of their own.

Bossier Schools received its report card today from the Louisiana Department of Education, which showed marked academic gains in the 2016-17 school year, earning it the designation as an ‘A’ ranked public school district. 

An increase of 9.4 points bolstered Bossier Schools’ District Performance Score to 101.1 and an ‘A’ letter grade, reflecting Superintendent Scott Smith’s vision for different teaching practices and increased student learning over the past year.

Airline and Haughton High Schools also went up a letter grade, becoming ‘A’ ranked schools. Bossier High and Waller Elementary moved the needle as well and increased a letter grade; and Cope Middle, Plain Dealing High and Stockwell Place Elementary were named Top Gains schools, based on individual student progress. 

Those schools that previously received and maintained 'A' letter grades for the 2016-17 academic year include: Apollo Elementary, Benton High, Benton Middle, Cope Middle, Kingston Elementary, Legacy Elementary, W.T. Lewis Elementary, Parkway High and Stockwell Place Elementary. Needless to say, this kind of news deserved a celebratory pep rally and the one held was like no other. Click here to see the photo gallery.  

“I am excited beyond measure for our students and employees for the exhaustive efforts shown and outstanding job they did throughout the year amid sweeping curriculum changes and the academic performance bar being raised,” said Bossier Schools Superintendent Scott Smith.

“The School and District Performance Scores can be attributed to collaborative efforts at every level,” Smith continued. “Everyone at Bossier Schools is a piece of the puzzle, from teachers and students to administrators and support personnel. Credit must also go to our School Board representatives, who allowed us to do some very innovative things in the classroom to help ensure academic success. This is a great day for Bossier Parish Schools!”

Smith placed top priority on integrating Professional Learning Communities at each school and putting a mentor/mentee program in place to ensure every child has an adult they work with to chart their individual blueprint for academic success and personal best. A complete curriculum realignment was also implemented, changing the way the district teaches and tests students.

Earlier in the year, Bossier Schools claimed the sixth place spot for overall ACT composite score ranking in Louisiana and exceeded the state average in science scores by 10-percent on the 2017 LEAP proficiency exam.

Dear Parents/Guardians/Students:

 

I wanted to let you know about two exciting opportunities for course work, including Dual Enrollment at BPSTIL after hours, perhaps 4-5:30.

 

The two opportunities we are looking at target two different groups of students. 

 

1.   The first is a developmental math course provided by BPCC for students who need a higher Math sub-component on the ACT. This course would include and ACT voucher for the April ACT for qualifying students.  The cost of this course would be covered by a grant, and there is the potential of providing transportation for students as well.  We are tentatively looking at Tuesday and Thursdays.

 

2.  A dual enrollment Pre-Calculus course offered at BPSTIL at the same time.  This would be for students who want this higher level math.  Again, this would be covered by a grant and have the potential for transportation provided.

 

Please email me at nichole.nuccio@bossierschools.org and let me know if you (or your student) might be interested in one of these opportunities.  This information will be shared at the district level on Nov 1.

 

Thank you,

 

Nichole Nuccio

The 2016-2017 Yearbook is delayed due to this summer's construction. It caused major delays as the internet and power were turned off and the school was not accessible to faculty due to safety concerns. As such, the Yearbook staff was unable to access any files or programs to complete the yearbook as this yearbook was designed to feature the 100th graduating class of Bossier High. As soon as it arrives, we will post it on the website and our new Bossier High mobile app.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Dear Parent/Guardian:

 

It is hard to believe that we are almost half way through the first grading period! Our students have demonstrated a strong start to the academic year and we are certainly proud of them. 

This school year, students who are enrolled in the English I, English II, Algebra I, and Geometry courses are now expected to complete diagnostic and interim assessments associated with the new Leap 2025 comprehensive course assessments, formerly known as the EOC or "End of Course" test.  The students recently completed the diagnostic assessment which shows students and teachers what they know as they approach a new academic year. The Interim assessments will serve as benchmark measurements and will help to guide instruction toward mastery of the content presented courses that will be tested with the Leap 2025 State Assessment at the end of each semester.  

 

The Leap 2025 State Assessment will take place from November 29th until December 12th. Actual testing schedules for content areas will be released prior to Thanksgiving break. It is very important that students arrive on time to school during the testing window.  Students enrolled in English I, English II, English III, Algebra I, Geometry, Biology, and US History are required to take the Leap 2025 State Assessment. A passing score on the assessment and in coursework will be required to obtain credit for the course. 

 

Also, Juniors and some select Seniors will take the ACT in March.  Seniors will be highly encouraged to take the exam on this date, even if they have tested previously. For National ACT testing dates offered away from the Bossier High campus, please login to ACT.org. 

 

Please feel free to direct any questions to me at nichole.nuccio@bossierschools.org or (318) 549-6707. You may also contact your student's teacher or guidance counselor. 

 

Thank you for your continued support!
