CREATING SUCCESS THROUGH UNIQUE LEaRNING OPPORTUNITIES

 
Butte County Community School (BCCS) is operated by the Butte County Office of Education. This school recognizes the need for students to be college and career ready when they graduate from high school. BCCS serves students in grades TK-12. Staff supporting students in grades 7-8, 9-12 have established a program that assists students with identifying and reaching personal, college and career goals. The TK-6 classrooms strive to put a multitiered system of supports in place to address the academic, behavior and social emotional needs of elementary students at risk of not successfully transitioning to the local middle school programs. The BCCS vision is to Revolutionize student learning while strengthening family, school, and community partnerships. The mission is to “Provide a safe and supportive educational environment where learning takes place and compassionate citizens are developed.”
 
Staff at BCCS hold true to our collective values and commitments:
  • We will take time and utilize our expertise to build authentic relationships with students, families, and community.
  • We will respect all students, families, and community members regardless of their backgrounds and circumstances in order to successfully support their individual needs.
  • We will provide an inclusive environment to empower students and staff to become responsible school citizens.
 
BCCS aligned LCAP and SPSA goals include:
  • All BCCS students will be prepared to transition successfully into subsequent educational levels and the workforce.
  • All BCCS students will learn in safe, consistent, nurturing environments.
 
In the 7-8 and 9-12 classrooms, students learn to lead their way to a positive future in a self-contained community-oriented atmosphere. The school has been designed to maximize student motivation to attend, learn and succeed by providing each student a positive and supportive community-based learning environment where they feel valued and become productive members of their community. Students may participate in a modified school day and community-based learning opportunities, which BCCS values as an integral part of students' course of study. Students learn life, education, and career skills that they will apply to community volunteer programs, job shadowing, community service projects, internships and employment opportunities. All students who attend are expected to fulfill commitments to college and career readiness opportunities. Students will complete four and ten year plans related to goal setting in school and in long-term career opportunities. Students receive multiple support in reaching the positive goals they set.
 
All students are supported by an experienced staff that holds students to rigorous expectations, while providing support and flexibility to ensure students succeed. The staff develop one-on-one relationships with students utilizing individual success plans, a low teacher to student ratio, small class environment, culturally sensitive techniques and embedded learning and asset-based teaching strategies. The school provides a safe and culturally respectful environment for students to acquire skills to become critical thinkers and problems solvers ready to overcome educational and life barriers.
 
One thing that makes the BCCS unique is our fully inclusive teaching model. All students are taught together at all times. Push in special education support and targeted intervention groupings allow students to be with their peers in a classroom and small group setting instead of being removed from core instruction in the classroom for services. Students are taught alongside each other where they can support their peers and build empathy, compassion, awareness, and acceptance of all people.
