--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:

  • • SC READY (English/Language arts and mathematics in grades 3–8);
  • • SCPASS (science in grades 4 and 6);
  • • End-of-Course Examination Program for the following high school courses: English 1, Algebra 1, Biology 1, United States History and the Constitution. These tests will not count 20% of overall grades;
  • • Prekindergarten assessments; and
  • • Alternate Assessments

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.

 

--Prom Update:

UCHS Students and Staff,

As the world is facing unprecedented times with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Union County School District and Union County High School are committed to ensuring the health and well-being of all of our students and staff. With all of the uncertainty around us, UCHS Administration in coordination with UCSD Administration has made the decision to postpone the 2020 Prom until Saturday, May 23, 2020. By setting the date now, it allows our Juniors, Seniors and their parents time to adjust their plans for this memorable experience. It also allows the Prom Committee to adjust contracts and have time to prepare to make this the experience that our students deserve.

We will send more information regarding logistics such as ticket purchase and fee payment in the coming days/weeks.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

 

--Union County Schools closed through April 30th

Governor Henry McMaster and South Carolina Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman today released the following joint statement announcing that South Carolina’s schools will remain closed for the duration of the month of April:

“At this time, students, parents, and families should plan for South Carolina’s schools to remain closed through the month of April. Our dedicated teachers and school administrators have done a tremendous job in making it possible for our students to learn at home. We understand that the prospect of schools remaining closed for an extended period of time places stress and strain on parents and children. Rest assured, if there is any way to safely open our schools earlier, we will do that, but schools must remain closed to protect the health and safety of South Carolinians.”

On March 15, Governor McMaster issued Executive Order 2020-09, which closed public schools for students and non-essential employees through March 31st. The governor will issue an additional executive order to extend the K-12 school closures through the month of April in the coming days.

As his previous executive order did, the governor’s executive order will apply to the state’s public colleges, universities, and technical colleges, and encourage those institutions to maintain existing plans to provide instruction through virtual learning. 

 

--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. Traditional May commencement ceremonies will be postponed. The USC System is committed to and are actively exploring options for rescheduled, in-person ceremonies when it is safe to host them and will be planning experiences for graduates to celebrate their achievements.

 

--Beginning Monday, March 23, 2020, all Union County facilities will be closed to the general public.  All school and District Offices will have a minimum number of employees staffing the office.  The phones will be manned from 10am until 2pm Monday through Thursday.  Next week we will continue feeding ALL children (18 and under) on both the bus routes and thru pick up service at each school.  Bus routes will still be from 11am until 1pm and the pickup service will be 11:30am until 1pm Monday through Friday. 

 

--Union County School District's Fine Arts Night has been postponed

 

--Bus drivers will drive bus routes between 11-1 and stop at routes to allow cafeteria workers and classroom assistants to hand out lunches to all children 18 and younger. Meals can also be picked up at the schools between 11:30-1 at the bus loop in front of the school at Foster Park, Monarch, Buffalo, Jonesville, and Sims, and in front of the school at Union County High School
