Emergency Text Messaging

Emergency Text Messaging

To better communicate during times of emergency, Greenville County Schools asks that parents who currently have a landline listed as their “Primary Contact Phone” update their information to include a mobile number, if available. By adding a mobile number, parents will receive texts about school cancellations or other emergency schedule changes. Parents who already list a cellular phone as their primary contact will automatically receive these emergency text messages and do not need to complete the form.

South Carolina School Report Cards

South Carolina School Report Cards

Below is the link to our School Report Card, released November 29, 2018 by the State Department of Education.  Based on a number of factors, each school in the state has been rated as excellent, good, average, below average, or unsatisfactory.

Link: Fork Shoals Report Card

These report cards are very different from past report cards in our state.  The new report cards factor in multiple data points, test scores and surveys. The report attempts to measure a school’s academic achievement, student progress, college and career readiness and school climate. The reports will also include data on English Learners Progress, Student Safety, and Financial information. High School reports will factor in graduation rates, though the formula for determining the graduation rate has changed slightly from past years.

For the first time in South Carolina, NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) scores will be used to help determine schools’ ratings. NAEP tests students in every state in fourth grade and eighth grade in math, reading, science, and writing. The percentage of schools ranked in each category (from unsatisfactory to excellent) will align to the State’s 2015 NAEP results, so about 15 percent of schools in South Carolina will be rated “excellent,” 20 percent will be rated “good,” 35 percent will be rated “average,” 20 percent will be “below average,” and 10 percent will be “unsatisfactory.”

Along with the new rating system, the report cards feature several new pieces of data, including Education Value-Added Assessment System (EVAAS).  EVAAS measures student academic growth year-after-year. EVAAS measures student academic position in relation to his/her peers from one-year to another.  Growth among lowest performing 20% of students counts double toward each school’s report card.

If you have any questions or concerns related to our school’s ratings, feel free to contact our principals via email or phone.
