IMPORTANT

Background Checks Now Required for School Volunteers

The governor has signed legislation last week to require any individuals who are current or prospective volunteers of a school department and who may have direct or unmonitored contact with children or students on school premises to undergo a state criminal background check.

If you are planning on volunteering at your school this year, please obtain your BCI check soon!  This includes volunteering for PTA program/events, volunteering in your child's classroom, and chaperoning for field trips.  Please note that you will not be able to volunteer in any capacity in any school if a state criminal background check is not completed.

There are a couple of options available to obtain a state criminal background check (BCI):



From the Desk of the Superintendent

June 2015

In a few school weeks the 2014-2015 school year will come to a close. It has been an exciting year for students and staff both academically and athletically.   Music teacher Brian Flynn was awarded a Golden Apple by Commissioner Gist.   Nicole Green, an elementary teacher at Robertson was nominated for Warwick Teacher of the Year.  Nicole and Barbara Pellegrino, an elementary teacher at Scott, received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics.  Dr. Caroline Savery, a Warwick Veterans High School Science teacher, was the local winner of the Barnes & Noble, “My Favorite Teacher Contest,” a recognition from a winning essay written by Veterans High School senior Brianna Bier.    The Pilgrim ladies soccer team is State Champions and the Unified Volleyball team from Toll Gate High School is Division IV State Champions.  Spring playoffs are currently underway and we wish them all good luck.    We acknowledge the community support for Evan Huddon on a Facebook contest to win a new van for transporting him to school. 

 More good news, the PARCC and the NECAP science assessments are completed for the year. The overall consensus is that the assessments went smoothly. The district received confirmation from RIDE on this topic in which they commented that the Warwick School District was one of the states shining stars in regard to the administration of the PARCC which was obviously the result of communication, training of staff and a commitment to improving instruction and the importance of assessment in this process.

 Update on the senior projects: we are very proud to announce that 630 seniors presented their senior projects on May 14, 2015 of which 31 passed with distinction and 113 passed with honorable mention. There are also 15 students still working on their projects for a variety of reasons. We are hoping that they all will make graduation on time.

 The school budget for the SY 2015-16 has been presented to the City Council for approval. This year’s budget includes many district initiatives. These are just a few of them: continuation of adding full day kindergarten programs; development of career exploration in grades 8 and 9, expansion of the cosmetology program at the CTC with the addition of another new program, plumbing; and a major initiative that would provide our students with 1-1 technology in grades 1-12.

 SMMA, the consulting firm that was hired by the School committee, is scheduled to conduct their next workshop on June 8, 2015 at Toll Gate High School in the auditorium beginning at 6 PM. The committee has reduced the number of options to two. All information, data and minutes have been posted and can be found on the district’s web page under appropriate links.

 A graduation reminder: Pilgrim seniors graduate on June 16, 2015; Toll Gate seniors on June 17; and Veteran’s seniors on June 18. All graduations begin promptly at 6 PM and all are held on the CCRI Warwick Campus.

 Also keep in mind that all schools are having end of the year activities. These activities range from kindergarten graduations, sixth grade ceremonies, band concerts, to field day activities, hope you are able to attend. The last day of school is June 24th, unless we have another snow day.

For those students who need to attend summer school, the general information can be found on the Warwick School web page. The dates of the summer school are July 6-August 4, 2015.

 Summer construction will focus on Fire code upgrades to both Drum Rock Early Childhood Center and the Greene administration building.

 A reminder to all that registration of new students will be available throughout the summer vacation at the 34 Warwick Lake Avenue between the hours of 8:00 -3:30. Please check the district web site for further details.

 One last reminder, please be careful and have a safe and pleasant summer vacation!   PS… remember to do your summer reading and math packets.

Sincerely,
Signed: Richard D'Agostino, Ed.D
