District Issues RFP for Architectural and Engineering Services

Our district recently applied for and received funding for school renovations, made possible by our state legislature via the Abbeville Capital Improvement Funds. Our application was approved by the State Board of Education in August, and we are now seeking proposals from firms interested in completing the specified renovations - bathroom facility renovations at all schools and window replacement at the primary school. We are grateful recipients of these funds, and we look forward to continuing to improve the learning environment at our schools!

ACT and SAT - Free for the Taking!

You may already know that some students are eligible to take the ACT or SAT for free through fee waivers.  But did you know that third year high school students have the opportunity to take ACT or SAT for free during a school day through funding provided by our state? This is an incredible opportunity to empower students as they prepare for the "day after" graduation.

                                                            Location:  Ware Shoals High

                                                               February 27, 2018: ACT

                                                                  March 7, 2018:  SAT

Students, with input from their parents, can choose one assessment. For students on an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), teams will meet to determine a student’s eligibility. Parents may elect for their children not to participate. Selection forms have been sent home with students and additional copies are available in the high school office.

Hurricane Irma - School Opening / Closing Decision Delayed

We will continue to monitor weather conditions during the weekend to determine if our school schedule needs to be altered for Monday and/or Tuesday. 
In his press conference today, Governor McMaster announced his decision to allow each district to make the call about opening or closing based on local weather conditions.
If there is any change in our operations, you will be notified by Sunday at 6PM through the usual channels of communication - phone, Facebook, district website, and TV.
We are keeping all in the path of the storm in our thoughts!

Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma continues to be closely monitored by the National Hurricane Center and the South Carolina Emergency Management Division. Governor McMaster has declared a state of emergency and has urged all citizens to begin to prepare for the storm. 

Governor McMaster stated in his press conference today (9/7/17) that his orders for schools will be announced tomorrow. He said he is likely to announce that some or all schools and state government offices will be closed Monday and Tuesday to allow for less traffic on state roads. Roads will be crowded with people evacuating inland from the SC coast and from neighboring states. Also, many schools are designated as Red Cross shelters and may need to be used.

High winds may cause power outages or could prevent us from running school buses. Buses may not be driven if winds are greater than 30 miles per hour. Heavy rains could cause isolated flooding, making travel dangerous. 

In the event of school closings, you will be notified via our phone messenger system. Please be sure we have correct contact information for you. Information will also be shared on this page, our district website, and local TV and radio stations.

More information about how Hurricane Irma might affect South Carolina may be found at http://scemd.org/.
