SC Education Oversight Committee Survey
South Carolina is committed to ensuring our students have the highest academic standards so they are prepared to succeed in college, career and beyond.  Act 200, as passed by the SC General Assembly, requires a cyclical review of the current academic standards in ELA and mathematics before January 1, 2015.  The goal of the review is to guarantee that SC students have college and career readiness standards for school year 2015-16 and beyond.  The public is invited to share their thoughts on the current standards via this website before September 30, 2014.  Public input will be collected and shared with members of the SC Education Oversight Committee as well as the SC State Board of Education.  Visit http//scstandards.org/ to complete the survey.

Comments are specific to each grade level and content area.  You may leave comments on the past page which is labeled "Exit."

Alive at 25
Alive at 25 courses will be offered on September 27, October 18, and November 22. Please register online at http://www.scaliveat25.com or call Officer Szymanski at 403-2104 or Mr. Boozer at 403-2113 to sign up.  

Alive at 25 is a survival course developed by the National Safety Council. It is designed to prevent the #1 killer of teens, automobile crashes. SC Alive at 25 is taught by off-duty Deputy Sheriffs, Municipal Police Officers and SC Highway Patrol Officers. The course is delivered in one 4.5 hour program which focuses on the behaviors, decision-making and risks facing young drivers every time they get behind the wheel.  Since South Carolina's program kicked off in 2007, the state's death toll among drivers 15-24 has dropped by 41%. This reduction is amazing, but one life lost is still one too many. The council developed the Zero Hero campaign to emphasize South Carolina's goal of Zero traffic fatalities among young drivers.

Students must no longer be enrolled in public school to be eligible.

The petitioner must complete the ACT 155 High School Diploma Petition Application in its entirety and submit to the school district as indicated on the application. Please note that the deadline for petitions to be received by the School Board of Trustees is December 31, 2015.
