VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE BLYTHEWOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL, OF RICHLAND SCHOOL DISTRICT TWO, FOR BEING NAMED A "SCHOOL TO WATCH" BY THE NATIONAL FORUM TO ACCELERATE MIDDLE-GRADES REFORM.
Whereas, Blythewood Middle School has been named a "School to Watch" by the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform, which honors high-performing middle schools; and
Whereas, the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform conferred this honor upon Blythewood Middle School because it challenges students, shows sensitivity to the developmental changes of early adolescence, and provides quality teachers; and
Whereas, this Richland County school's dedicated faculty, administration, and staff are to be commended for their united strong support of student achievement, desire to continually improve, and recognition of their responsibility to nurture children of good character; and
Whereas, an alliance of more than sixty educators, researchers, and officers of national associations and foundations, the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform is committed to improving education in the middle grades; and
Whereas, founded in 1999 as a program to identify middle-grade schools across the country that are meeting or exceeding a set of strict criteria for excellence, the National Forum's Schools to Watch program currently includes fourteen states in its membership; and
Whereas, the General Assembly takes great pleasure in recognizing the students, faculty, administration, and staff of such an exemplary middle school as Blythewood and expects to hear of continued great achievements in the years ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, recognize Blythewood Middle School, of Richland School District Two, for being named a "School to Watch" by the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform.
