Colleton County School District focused on the needs of students, staff and community during the 2020-21 school year. New physical, emotional and academic challenges were brought about through the COVID-19 pandemic. Our staff, students, parents and community met these challenges with adaptations focused on meeting the needs of our students. Students attended school in several models: a face-to-face model, a virtual model where classes were conducted online, and a combination of both models where students received instruction both face to face and online. Teachers continued to deliver instruction based on proven research-based practices and addressed student needs during reteaching, intervention, and focus times. While we acknowledge many of our students faced challenges in their academic progress, the district is committed to engaging students in learning opportunities that will accelerate their learning so that all students will possess World Class Knowledge, World Class Skills, and Life and Career Characteristics.
Daily instruction was based on South Carolina State Standards. Teachers met in professional learning communities to plan lessons that were built upon the needs of their students and the expectations of state standards. Additional learning opportunities were provided for may need additional services such as gifted and talented, English Language Learners, special education students. Students continued to participate in Career and Technical Education classes and dual enrollment to ensure all students are career and /or college ready by graduation. In spite of the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic brought, we successfully graduated 279 students with 152 completers in career and technical education.
The district and all of our schools are accredited through the South Carolina Department of Education and have earned additional accreditation and recognition for meeting high standards for a quality school system from AdvancED.
Colleton County School District is committed to providing high levels of learning for all students as we continue to “Prepare Every Child Today for Tomorrow”!
