Principal's Message

Welcome,
          My name is Terry Day, and it is my honor to serve as the principal of the Bell County Alternative School (BCAS). We are a co-op school campus that serves the students of five independent school districts (ISDs): Academy, Holland, Rogers, Salado, and Troy ISDs. A student must first be enrolled in one of the co-op school districts in order attend this campus. At this time our campus is able to offer two programs. First is our Alternative Educational Program (AEP). It is an academic program. Please click on the “Programs” tab and select the “AEP (Academic Program)” link for more information on this program. Second is our Disciplinary Alternative Educational Program (DAEP). Please click on the “Programs” tab and select the “DAEP (Discipline Program)” link for more information on this program.
          Our standards are high at BCAS and for that we make no apologies. We are a competency-based and proactive learning institution that is always looking to improve our student services. The teachers and staff at BCAS are second to none.
          As principal, it is my ‘mission’ (personal mission statement) to create a perpetual learning environment that fosters a desire to grow and encourage others to grow.
         It is my educational ‘philosophy’ that if one is truly ‘student centered’, then all of your students and staff will become better today than they were yesterday. In order for this philosophy to be made manifest, I have placed specific expectations on myself and my staff. In order to be ‘student centered’ one must first become a ‘servant’ to the ‘needs’ of all students. We must not only educate our students, but we must also nurture and empower them. In order to ensure that no child slips through the cracks, I believe that one must ‘find God’s perfection’ in each and every child. Secondly, one must be ‘team’ minded. As a team player you not only empower your cohorts (parents, staff, community), but you also empower yourself. Finally, one must establish a learning environment that maintains a high level of professionalism. This learning environment must maintain a positive energy at all times. It falls to each of us to keep this environment corrosion free. At BCAS we pride ourselves in being a ‘student centered’ campus.

Terry Day
