--Standardized Testing Updates for Spring 2020
The U.S. Department of Education has approved our state’s request to suspend testing in South Carolina schools as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
South Carolina will not administer any of the following assessments Spring 2020:
The South Carolina Department of Education is working closely with the vendors of college entrance, college credit, and workforce readiness assessments to explore innovative approaches, such as testing online. To the extent possible, districts may administer these assessments to students who may need them for post-secondary or employment aspirations. These assessments include Advanced Placement (AP), SAT, ACT, and WIN Ready to Work. Should these assessments be able to be administered, they will continue to be paid for by the state.
Grading Updates for Spring 2020
Union County School District stands firm on supporting our families during this horrific time. We are committed to extending grace before grades, relationships before rigor, patience before programs, and love before lessons.
Students will also receive grades for the work they have completed and on-going feedback from their teachers. For students completing paper copies of assignments, there will be a delay in receiving grades to ensure the safety and well-being of our teachers.
For students enrolled in credit bearing courses for a high school diploma, grades will continue to be entered into PowerSchool during the COVID-19 extended school closure. At this time, the District is still determining the appropriate grading percentages for the work these students are completing; therefore, adjustments may be made to category weights in PowerSchool prior to the end of the school year.
Teachers will continue to meet accommodations for students outlined in individual student's IEPs and 504 plans.
In Union County, our mission is "Students First!" We will work with all families to ensure all students are successful. Schools will provide additional support for students who do not have internet accessibility, extenuating circumstances, or prolonged illness during this time.
For parents with additional questions, please contact the Office of Instruction at 864-429-1740 for more information.
--Union County Schools closed through April 30th
--UCDS will be closed for the month of April in compliance with the new statement from Governor McMaster. We will continue to provide work electronically and in packets for all students to ensure their educational progress remains on track during these unprecedented times. The office will continue to be open from 9:00-12:00 each week day, with teachers available for web conferences and one on one meetings as students need. No work will be given during the scheduled week of spring break, and standardized testing will not be given this year. We look forward to seeing our UCDS family together again as soon as it is safely possible to do so.
--Jonesville Town Hall has snack bags for kids while out of school. They had planned to give them for lunches, but since the school district is delivering, they can be picked up for an additional snack or an evening meal. They can pick up at the town hall.
--USC Union (and all USC System institutions) will deliver instruction via online, remote, or alternative learning strategies for the rest of the semester.
