It has come to our attention that there are rumors of a gun on one of our campuses today. This is only a rumor. To the best of our knowledge there were no weapons on any school campus today. With the recent tragic events in Florida, we want to remind students and parents if you see something say something to school administration or to our sheriff’s office. As always safety is our primary concern.
Please congratulate Jesse Dean, a Sr. in the LIFE program at Cheraw High, on his acceptance into the Think College program at Winthrop University. Jesse is now one of two LIFE students from Chesterfield County School District to be accepted into one of the five post secondary programs in our state for students with intellectual disabilities. This is such an accomplishment for not only Jesse and his family but also his teachers, school and district. Way to go Jesse.
All 16 Chesterfield County School District schools recently selected their respective Teachers of the Year. Those selected to represent their school are:
Chesterfield County School District has announced that Feb. 19, March 30, and June 1 are now regular school days to make up for days missed during the year for inclement weather.
State law requires that all districts designate three make up days when the school calendar is adopted, and those three dates were a part of the 2017-18 school calendar adoption in early 2017.
State law does allow for any missed days beyond three to be excused by the local school board, and in a unanimous vote at the February board meeting, the Jan. 17 day missed for snow was excused and will not have to be made up.
South Carolina Council for Exceptional Children recognized several students and teachers from Chesterfield County School District as state level winners. South Carolina Council for Exceptional Children is a professional organization that is dedicated to advancing the success of children with exceptionalities through advocacy, standards and professional development.
