Busbee Creative Arts Academy has 340+ students, grades six through eight and serves the attendance areas of Cayce and West Columbia, South Carolina.  
Busbee 's curriculum involves teaching strategies that are hands-on, real world, motivating, and interdisciplinary.  The curriculum involves common goals and teacher collaboration and focuses on instruction that is technology and arts enriched.     

A Message from Administration

As you all know, Busbee Creative Arts Academy is a Title I school.  Our status as a Title I school is based on the socio-economic status.  Because of our status, the federal government provides us with additional funding to support the education of our children. The government’s Title I program requires a school to put together a spending plan each year for the allocated funds.  We have written into this year’s plan two very important activities to improve your student’s middle school learning experience. 

The first is a school-wide PRIDE plan of support that includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create a positive school environment. This is more easily referred to as PBIS, Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports.  Why PBIS? Unfortunately, there is no magic wand to remove the barriers to learning that occur when behaviors are disrupting the learning community.  In the past, school-wide discipline has focused mainly on reacting to specific student misbehaviors. Research shows that the implementation of punishment, especially when it is used inconsistently in the absence of other positive strategies, is ineffective.  Additionally, climates within each learning community vary, so a “one size fits all” approach is less effective than a plan of interventions based on the needs of the individual school.  Through PBIS, Busbee is introducing, modeling and reinforcing positive social behavior school-wide and in the classroom.  The overall purpose of school-wide PBIS is to establish a climate in which appropriate behavior is “the norm”.  We are in high hopes that in using this approach Busbee students and staff will enjoy a thoroughly positive educational experience.   

The second is the continuation of Busbee’s FREE After School Program, Tuesday through Friday from 3:30 – 5:45 p.m.  “There is a direct correlation between students that attended After School and their success on PASS testing.   Students that attended tutoring consistently were Met and Exemplary on PASS,” states Mr. Forest Kinnett, Busbee Social Studies Department Chair, 7th grade teacher, and, the Director of the school’s After School Tutoring Program.  Each week teaching staff help students in language arts, science, social studies & math instruction as well as computer training. The program also provides assistance for students with their homework assignments. Parental support is crucial to every student’s education. If you are interested in getting your student enrolled or on the waiting list, please contact the school’s main office. Students tend to cycle in and out of the program once their needs have been met so openings will occur. Should you need additional information about the program, contact Mr. Kinnett at 739-4070.

Come be a part of Busbee’s Title I Committee where we plan and strategize how the funds from our grant will be best utilized. Feel free to contact Ms. Hall, Principal by phone at 739-4070 or by email her at crhall@lex2.org 


We are having a fantastic year and thank you for being a part of it!


With warmest regards,

CR Hall, Principal and Donna Wilmot, Assistant Principal

Important Information

The following are two links to videos about your student's Samsung Tablet.  One is the tablet introduction video that tells you and your student about what they have and how to change settings.  It also tells them how to plug in their charger without damaging the charging port (very important!). The other is information on how to access WiFi at home.  If you or your student have any questions, please contact the main office at 739-4070.
