UPDATED JULY 21: CCSD Board Approves Virtual Option

UPDATETo best prepare the school district to meet the needs of all students and families during this time, we are asking all stakeholders to complete our learning model option surveys:

 The Colleton County School Board of Trustees upheld their earlier decision to approve the Colleton County School District reopening plan to start school virtually during their regular board meeting July 21.

The board also voted during that meeting to approve a 2020 - 2021 calendar that moves the start of school to September 8.

The CCSD reopening plan was created using information gleaned from multiple meetings with teachers, parents, students and district officials. This plan states that:

The start of school will be delayed until September 8 due to the high rate of spread of COVID-19 in Colleton County.

Following feedback from Colleton County School District stakeholders and due to the number of COVID-19 cases in the Lowcountry region, CCSD will use an all virtual learning model when school reopens. The district is exploring options for families without reliable internet access, and we will provide a channel for these families to participate in our distance learning initiative.

As the rate of COVID-19 spread lessens, the district will shift to a “blended learning” model (a mixture of virtual and in-person learning). Once it is deemed safe, the district will then gradually phase into face-to-face learning in our schools. The district will use all possible measures to keep our schools clean and safe for students, staff and parents.

The district will create a year-long virtual learning option for parents who want their children to learn virtually for the entirety of the 2020-2021 school year. Additional information on this virtual learning option will be released at a later date.

Bus meal deliveries will continue for CCSD students.

Additional information on school reopening will be released as soon as possible, through multiple information channels.
