1st Quarter Director’s Wrap-Up: 2019-2020 School Year

The 2019-2020 school year has started in earnest here at KEYS Academy-Culpeper, with our high school students and staff focusing on upcoming assessments and graduation requirements. We have worked diligently on remediating and guided practice sessions in preparation for upcoming Work Keys and SOL tests. Writing assessments in our high school will run from October 23 – November 1.

We are also very proud to announce that we have multiple students working on transitioning to their base school. Our staff has worked closely with returning and incoming students on completing their Behavior Intervention Keys (BIK’s) as well as their Safety Check questionnaires in order to begin helping them make progress towards maintaining expected behaviors and an appropriate level of well-being as they navigate through different school and community environments.

As always, we are currently teaching the components of our KEYS and Social Thinking curriculums in order to assist students with their social and emotional well-being as we begin this new school year and experience new challenges.
