A great video of a TED Talk about the power of the growth mindset:

Attendance

Absences can impede a student’s learning. Regular and timely student attendance can be successfully achieved through a strong partnership between the home and school. Please remember if your child is absent from school to provide a written statement within 2 days of the student’s return to school and include: the date the excuse is written; the date(s) of the absence(s) and reason for the absence; the student's full name; the signature and telephone number of parent or guardian.

The Citrus County School attendance policy can be viewed in the 2016-2017 Code of Student Conduct.

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION RELEASES NEW ONLINE TOOL TO EMPOWER AND INFORM FLORIDA FAMILIES

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., November 29, 2016 – Today, the Florida Department of Education unveiled a new website that will help Florida families make critical education decisions by enabling them to access school and district-level data and will better inform families about the state's college and career ready standards and the quality of learning taking place in their students' classrooms.

The website is live at www.FloridaStudentsAchieve.org.

“We take great pride in the fact that Florida leads the nation in school choice and student performance,” Education Commissioner Pam Stewart said. “Through the Florida Students Achieve website, we provide a central location where parents and families can access the information they need to make the best education decisions for their students. It is my hope that all Floridians will take advantage of this tremendous resource.”

One of the website’s primary functions is the school performance search tool, which ultimately enables parents to search by district, zip code, city or other geographic data view and then compare school and district data.

“I am confident that this new tool will revolutionize the way students and parents learn about the schools in their area and throughout the state,” State Board of Education Chair Marva Johnson said. “I commend the department for responding to the needs of Florida’s families with this informative, intuitive and transparent website, and I look forward to its continuous development.”

In addition to performance data, the site provides information relevant to current and future students of all ages and includes easy-to-find information about the Florida Standards, school and district performance results in core subjects, educator effectiveness and graduation and postsecondary statistics.
