COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION

(19-195) OPENING REMARKS AND WELCOME Dwayne Ross, PRINCIPAL, ALLEGHANY HIGH SCHOOL 

Mr. Ross welcomed everyone to Alleghany High School, a New Tech School.  He stated his goal for the school is to be better tomorrow than it is today.  He stated the students and staff strive for greatness in everything they do.  He thanked the Board for the room modifications and furniture.  He encouraged everyone to visit the building often.

 

(19-196) REMARKS BY PTO REPRESENTATIVE

Robert Tucker read the following statement:  “On behalf of the PTO I wish to welcome you to Alleghany High School, A New Tech School. I have taught at AHS for 38 years and I have never worked harder or put in more hours than I do now. I also have never been happier or more enthusiastic about coming into this building than I am now. I have seen changes in students, staff, and parents that fill me with a great sense of pride. We feel like our students are turning out great work but what do we know about projects as we are just simple country folk. To see how they are doing we sent one of our projects to New Tech to be graded by their experts. We were expecting to be told that our work was a joke but we were blown away when they wrote back using terms like extraordinary, exemplary, and outstanding. Of course, like my grandpappy used to say, “Pretty words are nothing but hot air. It takes batter to make cornbread.” On Friday we got our cornbread. We had a video conference with one of the heads of projects for New Tech and they want for the first time to feature our project and our students at the National Conference in Orlando this summer. They said that there were schools that had been doing PBL for years that could learn a lot about project authenticity and agency from our students. Years ago when we were looking at going to Project based learning, I told you that going to PBL was like planting a fruit tree: it can take years before it bears fruit as it has to have time to take root. We planted our tree in the fall and although we have not made it to spring yet, our tree is already full of apples. Who is responsible for this? Our students have bought into New Tech and are doing things we never thought possible. Our parents are involved in our school in ways I have never seen before. We just got an e-mail from a parent asking what she could do to help during our Spring Extravaganza. Our community has been responsive to every overture we have made to them. Our staff is working hard to ensure PBL is a success. Our central office staff is more than supportive of our efforts. Our school board has been very supportive and had the courage to move to project based learning for the good of our students when many boards would have played it safe and stay with the old way because it had worked in the past. For that and all you do for us, we say thank you.”

This survey, which we have administered every other year since 2002, provides the most comprehensive data on a variety of teenage behaviors and will allow for comparison of longitudinal data relative to the Alleghany County Public Schools. Once again, our School Health Advisory Board (SHAB) was assisted in administration of the survey with the Community Services Board.  As has been the case with previous administrations, Alleghany County Public Schools students engage in risky behavior similar to others nationwide.  While risky behavior results are similar to those reported in 2016, use of electronic vapor devices has doubled for both middle and high school students.  Bullying behaviors are also trending upwards since 2016.  Students continue to be active in the community and are supported.
