"On March 25, 2015, Byhalia Middle School was recognized for two awards at the MS Department of Education's "Champions of Change" Conference.  First, we were recognized as one of 33 schools state wide to receive the status of "High Progress School."  This is awarded "to schools across the state for demonstrating the greatest gains in closing achievement gaps among students.  


      This award status goes to schools that represent the highest 10% of schools that have improved in overall performance over the past two years and all within the top quartiles of schools in performance gains of the lowest 25% subgroup.

     "Additionally, Byhalia Middle School was recognized as one of 20 schools state wide to receive the status of "Title I Distinguished School."  This is "awarded to the top 20 Title I schools who have effectively closed the achievement gap between the black and white student subgroups in Reading/Language Arts and Mathematics for two or more consecutive years "As an added surprise bonus, each of the Title I Distinguished Schools received a check for an additional $23,750.05 in Title I funds to be spent at our discretion.  Picture above is myself and Mr. Moore receiving the awards and check from State Superintendent Dr. Wright and Director of Federal Programs Marcus Cheeks.

    Needless to say, this is a HUGE accomplishment for everyone associated with BMS - the students, the teachers, the faculty and staff, and the parents.  THANK YOU to everyone who has dedicated countless hours and hard work to giving our students a fantastic education.I was and am extremely proud to say we have such a phenomenal team.L.
