Please see the attached notice that describes work that will begin in B-PC schools the week of May 27, 2019. All district offices and buildings will be closed on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 to support staging.
In an effort to improve learning opportunities provided to the students of Bushnell-Prairie City High School and Bushnell-Prairie City Junior High, several changes have been implemented that create a consistent schedule between both buildings, move the start time of the day to capture more instructional minutes, and result in greater flexibility for students.

Our annual spring play fell victim to the number of emergency weather days we experienced and our cast was not able to adequately prepare for the performance they had planned. We look forward to next year!
As a district, we value student contact time which has been negatively impacted by weather-related cancellations. In an effort to regain important instructional time, the following calendar changes were approved by the Board of Education at their regular February meeting:
2/15 No School Improvement Day; no early release; changed to full student attendance day
3/15 No School Improvement Day; no early release; changed to full student attendance day
4/17 No Teacher Institute Day; changed to full student attendance day
4/18 Non-Attendance Day; changed to full student attendance day
Friday, 4/19 and Monday, 4/22 will remain non-attendance days and all schools and school offices will be closed. Our last day of student attendance will be Friday, May 24, which will remain a School Improvement Day with a 2-hour early release.
Our district is once again participating in the 5Essentials Survey, which allows parents, students, and teachers to provide information about elements that influence school effectiveness. A message was sent via Skyler to families providing more information. Parents are welcome and encouraged to complete the survey by February 15 by visiting the following link: 5Essentials Parent Survey and select the appropriate survey. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. If at least 20% of our parents take the survey, their collective responses will appear as supplemental information on our school report cards.
