SC SDE Report Cards Released
The South Carolina Department of Education (SDE) released report cards today that rate each school in the state as Excellent, Good, Average, Below Average, or Unsatisfactory. In Greenville County Schools (GCS), 72 of 85 schools earned ratings of Average, Good, or Excellent, which means they meet or exceed the criteria to ensure all students meet the Profile of the SC Graduate. Under the new system school districts continue to receive a report card, but are no longer rated. The last rating for GCS was excellent.
ACE Awards Nominations Now Open!
The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) is an annual award given to 72 male and female students from each of the 35 Greenville County middle and high schools. This award is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments. The selection process, established by Greenville County school counselors, focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but have accomplished great things in their community, church or school.
If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please or go online to coaches4character.com and click the nominate button at the top of the page. You can also complete a paper application, available in the School Counseling Office. All nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2019. An ACE Awards Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award. One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County. All ACE award recipients will be recognized at the ACE Awards ceremony on May 15, 2019.
