Small Classroom Instruction
Students with various language based learning differences receive appropriate instruction in small classes of 7 or less. Reading and Math are very intensive, structured, and taught with a low teacher to student ratio. Teachers use multi-sensory methods to teach the students. Our various curricula are research tested and highly recommended for students with learning differences. Students learn to read by using the Wilson Reading System. Wilson is based on Orton Gillingham methods and uses a multi-sensory, systematic approach to phonemic instruction, spelling, and reading comprehension. Students learn math through various curricula such as Teaching Textbooks, Drops in the Bucket, Houghton Mifflin, and SRA Spectrum. Science and Social Studies are taught through unit studies in nine-week blocks. This program allows students to integrate knowledge in all subjects as it fosters discovery learning and logic.
ESL students may choose to transition into another school or graduate from BCLS. Transitional students are given the opportunity to learn to speak, read, and write English before enrolling in a traditional school. At least two years is recommended. ESL students learn to read English with the Wilson Reading System and Pearson Longman ESL materials.
All students will receive intensive instruction in reading/language arts and math.
Reading instruction for students who are Dyslexic or English Language Learners will be based on the Wilson Reading System, FastForWord, and other appropriate reading programs. Reading instruction for students with comprehension difficulties will be based on AGS Pearson Longman books, Visualizing and Verbalizing, and other appropriate programs. All students study novels.
Language Arts classes heavily emphasize writing, grammar, and Latin roots, prefixes, and suffixes.
Math instruction is based on hands on methods, and math curriculum includes Teaching Textbooks, Spectrum Math by SRA, Drops in the Bucket by Frog publications, and Houghton Mifflin Math.
Reading and math groups will be organized by student ability levels.
Throughout the day as well as through small group time, students will receive spiritual guidance without judgment. Through the thematic units in history and science, students will learn to respect God’s creation: people, animals, and the earth. BCLS is non-denominational and employs teachers from all denominations.
All courses and curriculum fulfill Georgia’s performance standards. However, most students will not perform on grade level, and may not be able to fulfill the standards for their chronological age or grade level. Advanced Placement® (AP®) , and other advanced courses, are also offered; as well as joint enrollment possibilities, when appropriate for students.
Our primary purpose is to meet the child’s needs rather than impose a developed structure upon their education.
The type of diploma a child receives depends on the coursework they are able to complete. Brookwood offers College Prep, Career Prep, and Special Ed programs.
Educational Goals and Objectives
Brookwood Christian School Strives to…
Provide intensive small class instruction (that is appropriate, research based, and high quality) for 1st – 12th grade students who struggle in a regular classroom setting.
Provide an appropriate learning environment for students with language based learning differences that include but are not limited to Dyslexia, visual and/or auditory processing problems, and English as a Second Language.
Provide a structured environment that still allows for discovery learning and integration of all subjects.
Provide counseling for social skills, goal setting, self-regulation, coping skills, study skills, self-confidence, etc.
Provide a learning environment that allows movement for students who need to move in order to learn.
Provide a safe, nurturing, low stress, learning environment for children and teenagers with special needs.
Provide parents of special needs children with support, resources, and educational opportunities for them and their children.
Our Mission is to encourage exceptional students in grades 1 through 12 to work to their very best abilities in a relaxed, low stress Christian environment. Individual learning styles are nurtured and strengths are developed while specific deficits are remediated. We strive to improve our students’ quality of life through academics, physical, emotional, cultural, social, and spiritual growth.
Hours of Operation
School is in session from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Staff members will be at the school as early as 7:30 A.M. for drop off. Please make sure students are on time and ready to begin at 9:00. Please be in carpool line at dismissal time. Dismissal is 2:50 P.M. for building 100 and 3:00 P.M. for building 200 (new building). Parents will be charged $10 if a child is picked up after 3:15. After 3:30 the cost is $1 per minute.
Please form a line with cars. In order to ensure child safety, please do not pass other cars in line. We ask all children to walk and enter the car on the passenger side. However, children sometimes run from their cars as other cars begin to pull around. If you plan to leave your car unattended, please park in a designated space, turn off the engine, remove the keys and lock all doors. In order to expedite the morning carpool process, please have your children ready for drop off. Please avoid conferring with teachers during drop off and pick up, as they are responsible for student safety at this time. Please send a note to your child’s teacher anytime there is a change in your regular carpool arrangements. We will not release children without proper verification and identification.
Students must complete a driver’s application/registration and a parking contract with their parents and the school before they can park on campus. Detailed parking guidelines and regulations are on pages 21 & 22; and application, registration, and contract are available on the Brookwood Christian Website:
To check your child out early from school, you must do so through Ms. Danielle or Ms. Becky, or, Ms. Julie in their absence. To make this easier, you will have a number directly to Ms. Danielle and Ms. Becky that is not published and used exclusively to facilitate such procedures. This is a non published number that only BCLS parents have.
BCLS will not hold school when there is a hazardous situation on the roads. We will follow the Cobb County School closings. In the event we close outside of CCSD, we will email, post on Facebook, Twitter, and the school website.
Copies of custody papers or of guardianship must be on file in the school office if you have a custody agreement regarding your child. Unless we have official documentation on file, the school cannot prevent a parent listed on the birth certificate from picking up a child.
Meals and Snacks
Parents are to provide a nutritional lunch and snacks for their children. Protein snacks are encouraged for students with ADHD.
Understanding that too much homework can be counterproductive and take away from family time, minimal homework is required. However, if your child is in a college prep high school program, more homework will be required.
Many of our students attend church, take sports classes, belong to clubs, and go to therapy or tutoring appointments after school. These activities are encouraged and make homework difficult.
For students who need homework, it will be assigned based on their individual needs and abilities. Also, when students do not finish their work in class, they will be asked to complete it at home. If it is not completed at home, students must complete the work on Friday before they can participate in the arts activities.
Textbooks, Workbooks, and Supplies
All supplies and books are property of the school and must be treated with care. Parents will be billed for lost or damaged books. The cost of Textbooks, Workbooks, and reasonable supples is included in tuition. Students are expected to bring paper and pencil/pen to school for most classes.
Please watch for notices regarding photographs of individual children and classroom groups. A local professional photographer will take school pictures in the fall. A basic set of photos will be included with tuition, but parents may order more from the photographer.
Grades and Report Cards
Students have periodic evaluations to see if they are grasping the concepts they are being taught. Reports are sent home at nine-week intervals during the year. For younger students, the progress report will state the concepts the student has been taught during the period and will include teacher's comments as to how the child is progressing. Students will receive percentage grades on their report cards every nine weeks.
The Woodcock Johnson test is administered each Spring to assess reading and math levels. The results are used to assess progress and determine placement for the following year.
A permanent cumulative file is maintained for each student. Files hold health records, progress reports, and standardized test results. We will release copies of the contents of the file to another school upon written request providing that the parent's financial obligations are current. Records will not be released if a parent is behind in payments. Please allow 2 weeks for records to be sent (after all payments are received). After the students have been withdrawn for a 5-year period, all records are destroyed.
Change of Status
Whenever you experience a change in address, home phone, work phone, email, medical, transportation, etc... please update the information on RenWeb using the WebForms. Any last minute unexpected changes in pickup, please notify Ms. Danielle or Ms. Becky.
The school will offer various field trips throughout the year. Parent volunteers provide transportation for these trips. A field trip permission form with the parent’s signature must be returned to the teacher before a student's participation is permitted. Generally, there is a cost to parents for admission. Parents are encouraged to go with their children on field trips.
High School Honors Trip
Each year BCS plans a week long honors trip. The trip costs about $500. In order to qualify for the trip, high school students must:
Have all A’s and B’s
Be caught up in all classes
Not be a consistent complainer
Have earned the trust of all teachers
Have no suspensions since the last trip
Turn in all paperwork and fees by the deadline
Have good hygiene consistently and independently
Tuition and all other expenses must be current
Not have more than 5 unexcused absences or tardies
Be able and willing to follow teacher directions the first time every time
Be able to tolerate others for an extended amount of time without melt down
Must be able to eat what everyone else eats or carry out special diets independently
Be able to walk and tolerate physical exertion and heat for long strenuous distances
Fire and Tornado Drills
Fire drills are conducted monthly during the school year. Tornado drills are conducted twice yearly. Students are expected to walk quietly and quickly and to follow the teacher's directions.
You may celebrate your child’s birthday at school by bringing in a special snack (cupcakes, cookies, popcorn, etc.) to be eaten after lunch or at the end of the day.
Adults must be listed on the pick up or carpool form, present identification, and sign out the student. If the adult is not authorized to pick up the student, they will be asked for a photo I.D., which will be photo copied. School personnel will then call the child’s parent or guardian for permission to release the student. If the parent cannot be reached, school personnel will check the file for a custody agreement. If necessary, proper authorities will be notified. A student will not be released to an unauthorized person without parent permission.
Staff members stay in contact with the use of walkie-talkies and cell phones.
Phone Numbers and Addresses
A student directory is available on RenWeb. Parents wishing to not have their phone numbers and addresses published should make sure the appropriate selections are made. All parents/guardians should make sure RenWeb has accurate and up-to-date information.
Staff and Teacher Contacts
Staff may be contacted by sending email. Calls and emails will be returned during breaks or after school. Teachers and staff should not be contacted at home or on personal cell phone.
Parent may request an annual conference during one of the two conference periods during the year, fall or spring. At this conference, you can expect to see a portfolio of your child’s work, discuss academic, social and emotional growth of your child, and set goals for the future.
Parents are encouraged to schedule appointments at any time during the school year if a suitable resolution cannot be reached by email with teacher(s). Appointments should be scheduled in advance since discussions/conferences are not possible at drop-off and pick-up times.
Of course, if there are any concerns of which you need to be made aware, we will schedule those conferences with you as necessary.
Parent/Teacher Resolution Protocol
We encourage parents to share any concern they may have with their child’s teacher. The following guidelines apply.
1st: Parents should share concerns with their child’s teachers. The teacher should then acknowledge the concern and set up a time for a meeting with the parent to discuss possible solutions. The teacher may choose to receive counsel from another teacher or administrator before, during, or after the meeting.
2nd: If a parent follows this protocol and feels a resolution was not reached, he/she may then and only then schedule a meeting to discuss that concern with an administrator.
3rd: Teachers should keep the administration notified of ongoing concerns.
4th: Teachers should keep an ongoing record of parent-teacher interactions.
Attendance, Health, & Medication
While it is our desire that every child enters the school year as planned, no child may be admitted to classes without the required documentation. Georgia Law requires Immunization Certificate 3231. For each student. Failure to provide written documentation regarding your child’s immunization history for school records may result in penalties and fines for the school.
Required forms are Department of Human Resources forms 3231, 3300, and 3189.
Form 3231 is the Certificate of Immunization.
Form 3300 Certification of eye, ear and dental examination (dental section to be completed by your dentist). For students entering the sixth grade, Georgia law now requires
Form 3189 (an additional dose of MMR vaccine) and the varicella vaccine or proof of immunity.
Your child should see his/her pediatrician once a year for a well check-up until age seven, then every 1.5 – 2 years after that.
Attendance and Absence Policy
Children need to attend school daily in order to make steady academic progress, develop friendships and peer relationships, and function smoothly within the class routine. Please try to schedule all outside appointments after school when possible.
Planned: doctor appointments, family travel, mission trips, and college visits (must be approved in advance).
Unplanned: illness, family illness, bereavement (must send note the day the child returns). Please keep your child home when sick. A Doctor’s note will be required after the 10th absence.
After 10 absences, students may be required to attend summer school to complete classes to receive credit.
Guidelines to Follow:
In order to maintain a healthy school environment, children should be without fever (<99.5), vomiting, diarrhea, or runny noses (green or yellow mucus), and must have received treatment for strep and pink eye for 24 hours, and must be free of all mononucleosis symptoms and any nits from lice for 24 hours or more before returning to school. Children who develop these symptoms at school must be picked up from school.
Children may return to school when all bumps from chicken pox are scabbed.
Parents must complete and sign a medicine administration form and make sure all medical information is up to date in RenWeb, which will indicate the reason for administration, the medication, possible side effects, and physician to be called in case of reaction, and the dosage. The child is responsible for coming to the teacher for the proper administration of medication.
Medication must be brought to school in the original container labeled by the pharmacy or physician with the student's name, physician's name, date of original prescription, name and strength of medication and directions for taking.
Parents must also indicate on the medication form that the child can be given over the counter medications such as Tylenol, Advil, or Benedryl.
Non-prescription medications must be brought to school in their original container.
No child shall possess prescription or non-prescription drugs during the school day. An exception will be made for inhalers, epi-pens, and insulin for diabetics. However, the school must have prior written permission from the child’s parents/legal guardian and the physician.
First Aid treatment will be rendered for minor injuries. Students who become ill during the day should inform their teachers, and the parents will be called. Should a child become injured (more than minor scrapes and bruises) during the day, parents will be notified. If parents cannot be reached, or if time is of the essence, school personnel will then call 911 or transport the child to a medical facility. The hospital of preference will be Kennestone unless instructed otherwise by emergency medical workers.
Please provide the school with a copy of your insurance card, so that prompt treatment may be given to your child. Parents are responsible for keeping the school informed of changes in phone numbers and emergency contact information.
In the event of a crisis on campus, a teacher will call for help by walkie-talkie, school phone, or cell phone. Authorities will be summoned. All teachers will be notified to either lock down (lock classroom doors and remain inside until instructed otherwise) or evacuate (exit the building through the closest exit and stay on the playground or in the parking lot).
Post Crisis Intervention
If a crisis occurs to one or more students on or off campus, someone from the school will contact parents by letter or by phone explaining what has occurred. Parents will be invited to come to school with their children the next morning. Counselors will talk with students and with parents about the event. Counselors will monitor students and be available to students and parents with questions and concerns.
