Open Quote Well here we are 3 days out from the start of a new school year.
And our principle is still with us....not without the lack of trying.

I'm not sure who holds her up,but someone has her strings in there hands.
If anyone has been following our struggle to regain control of our school and has any information they would like to share with the school board please write....ASAP

WE NEED ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET Close Quote

Open Quote Although Relay once was an excellent elementary school, its standard of excellence has decreased. This year, Relay has 16 teachers leaving, with only 3 of them retiring. Many of us have entrusted BCPS with our children's education, but this drastic turnover has many of us truly concerned for our children's educational future at Relay. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
