Bibb County Strategic Plan
7th Grade teacher, Dolores Gordon is a veteran within the Bibb County school system.
After 22 years, there’s really not much she hasn’t seen nor heard, that’s why she is one of the many, who is offering some wisdom. “I think that us educators who been out in the field have a better clue on what students need and the problems that actually occur.”
Monday morning, Superintendent Romain Dallemand, introduced teachers, staff and parents to a new strategic plan. “We strongly believe that everyone has something to share that is valuable, that is crucial and important.”
Inside the proposed plan, Dallemand lists three topics, letting the students choose which school to attend, year round school calendar and teaching Mandarin Chinese and use of technology. Dallemand says the plan is not just for the school system.
For 2007-2008, Bibb County has a 47% graduation rate for the 9th grade Cohort.
In 2010-2011, 703 students dropped out, 493 students were expelled and 7,914 were suspended.
Bloomfield Middle School Band Director Mike Scott is looking forward to the changes. “It’s completely unacceptable. There's always room for improvement.”
The strategic plan is suppose to be released in January 2012. Dr. Dallemand says the new plan will provide a new director for the Bibb County School System.
Dr. Dallemand is inviting parents, community, business and faith leaders to the next information session on October 10th at 8:30 a.m., inside the Macon Centreplex.
