  • SCHOOL BOARD RECOGNITION MONTH

    As citizen leaders, school board members face complex and demanding challenges. Yet few people fully understand the scope and far reaching implications of board members’ responsibilities. During School Board Recognition Month in January, South Carolinians are recognizing the vital contributions of these men and women and focus attention on the crucial role these elected public officials play in the education of our children.

    Their job is to establish a vision for the education program, design a structure to achieve that vision, ensure schools are accountable to the community and strongly advocate continuous improvement in student learning. That job entails an endless string of meetings and school functions to attend; reams of reports, agendas, proposals and other information to read and study; and a host of difficult decisions to make.

    School board members come from all walks of life right here in our communities. They are farmers, secretaries, doctors, lawyers, homemakers, architects, professors, business owners and real estate agents, to name a few.

    Although they wear many hats, school board members put on a collective hat when they get down to the business of leading their school districts. Board members must pull together as a team toward a common goal of helping all students achieve. Though individual school board members may sometimes disagree on issues, their role as a member of the school board is to consistently strive toward the goal of high academic achievement. Working together, school board members speak out for public schools and the students they serve.

    Board members contribute hundreds and hundreds of hours each year leading their districts. Whether it is crafting policies, listening to staff and students or recognizing outstanding programs, board members always keep their eyes on the goal of student achievement.

    The time spent in board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours school board members spend leading in their districts. They also work hard at seminars and training sessions to keep abreast of the latest trends in educational leadership, are deeply involved in community activities and spend many hours in the schools and at extracurricular events. Their love for learning, and concern and caring for students, staff and community, drives board members’ desire to lead so students can achieve.

    School Board Recognition Month is the time to show our appreciation and to increase our understanding of how local trustees work together to provide a better future for our children. Please join the McCormick County School District and state to salute the men and women who provide grassroots governance of public schools. Make a special effort to tell each school board member that his or her hard work has been noticed and is truly appreciated.

  • ACT 155/ ACT 207 McCormick School District Diploma Application
     
    Through the passage of Act 155 (now Act 207), the South Carolina General Assembly approved the removal of the exit exam as a requirement for graduation beginning with the graduating class of 2015. The elimination of the exit exam (BSAP, HSAP) requirement is retroactive to the graduating class of 1990.     Application for a diploma through ACT 155(207)
     
     
    The form may also be printed and mailed to:
    McCormick County School District
    821 North Mine Street McCormick, SC 29835
     
     
    You may also fill out a form online Click Here for Form 
     
    Once the application is received and the information verified, the school board of trustees must approve the names presented at their monthly scheduled meeting.  The names are then submitted to the State Department of Education for approval and printing. This process takes approximately six (6) weeks from board meeting to receipt of diplomas.
