Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities. SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of the content of a course without having taken the course.Click here for additional information.

Welcome to Baucom Elementary School!

Baucom provides a nurturing environment where learning is meaningful and challenging, and students' minds are actively engaged. 

Baucom Elementary Mission: To inspire students to confidently walk the road to success with a love of learning and the ability to adapt, think, collaborate, and problem solve. 

Baucom Elementary Vision: When you walk the halls of Baucom Elementary School, you will see teachers with a caring attitude, providing students with a basic learning foundation as well as challenges to help them meet their fullest potential.  Our teachers foster curiosity and provide enriching experiences in a safe and caring environment to promote life-long learning.  They participate in Professional Learning Teams as they work together to analyze data from on-going assessments and monitor student progress to plan for instruction.  This assures alignment with state and county curriculum as well as school goals.  We utilize our community partnerships and available technology to promote 21st century learning, all while maintaining a family friendly environment.  Baucom students also learn to be respectful, caring people through many outreach and character education programs throughout the year, as we learn to care for others as much as we care for ourselves.
