Utilizing the internet for educational use is a high priority.  The South Carolina Office of Regulatory Staff (ORS) has asked for our assistance in determining which students and staff live in households without adequate high-speed internet, whether it is because of service providers’ unwillingness to provide it to the home, the cost, or the lack of cell coverage.  ORS has created the “I Need Internet” survey to gather this information.

The mission of Calhoun County Public Schools continues to be to empower our students to compete and succeed in an ever-changing global society. During our times away from school buildings, our students and staff showed great resilience while adjusting to the structures associated with virtual teaching and learning. The 2021-22 school year welcomed us all back to face-to-face instruction and the new challenge of recovering from learning loss. The continuation of this learning modality should help our students progress towards academic proficiency. Enrichment periods in grades 3K-12 along with afterschool programs are in place to aid students in progressing to proficient levels of academic achievement.

Calhoun County Public Schools boasts a diverse offering of programs to meet student needs. From academic to social-emotional to athletic and fine arts programs, we aim to provide each student with what he or she needs to experience personal growth. Special Education programs, gifted and talented courses, Career and Technology, the Honors Academy, Orangeburg/Calhoun Technical College courses, and Associates Degree programs are a few of the academic support and programs that are available to our students. I am excited about many partnerships with local and state entities that provide a variety of resources for our students and staff. To name a few: Calhoun County First Steps, Calhoun County Library, Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, St. Matthews Police Department, Calhoun County Mental Health and Department of Social Services, and the variety of counseling agencies that provide services to students, families, and staff, and the many parent and business partners who provide support directly to the schools and classrooms.

As we fulfill the end of the 21-22 school year and embark upon the 22-23 school term, I am appreciative of the efforts made by our students and staff to resume our progression towards proficiency and I expect that staff will continue to analyze student performance data to create meaningful and engaging lessons for all students. Equally, I am proud of the strides that we have made as students, staff, and stakeholders to overcome the obstacle created by COVID-19.  I welcome and appreciate your engagement in the process of educating every child.
