On October 13, fifteen of our 11th grade Junior Scholars visited the USC-LANCASTER campus for Junior Scholars Day. During the visit, school staff spoke with the students about college life and what USCL could provide. They also sat in mini-sessions with professors on a variety of topics.
A New Teacher Orientation was held at the Palmetto Learning Center on Monday, Aug. 8. The Chair of the Board of Education, the Superintendent, and other administrators met with this group to offer guidance, support, and assistance to the new teachers. The district feels it is very important to show this support to new teachers because it has a positive impact on teacher commitment, retention, instructional practices, and student achievement. Support of teachers leads to higher job satisfaction and commitment and therefore, teachers are more likely to remain with the district.
