A Message from Dr. Reavis

Oakview 3rd-5th Graders prepare to show what they know! The South Carolina College-and Career-Ready Assessments (SC READY) are statewide assessments in English language arts (ELA), mathematics, and science. SC READY ELA and math are administered to students in grades 3-5, while science is administered to students in grades 4. Per SC law, students are required to participate in testing and the students’ scores will count in the schools’ and district’s accountability calculations.

Students can access the Online Testing Video Tutorials and the Online Tools Training (OTT) modules to become familiar with the online testing system. Although the OTT looks like a real test, there is no score, there is no time limit, and students may use it as many times as they want. The video tutorials and OTT are accessible on the DRC INSIGHT Homepage - click on the DRC INSIGHT Online Assessment Tutorial and the SC READY Online Tools Training icons on the lower part of the screen. To learn more about the SC READY assessments, please visit the SC Department of Education’s website.

Upcoming Test Dates:

  • Monday, April 29 - ELA Writing for 3rd, 4th & 5th Grades
  • Tuesday, April 30 - ELA Reading for 3rd, 4th & 5th Grades
  • Tuesday, May 7 - Math for 3rd, 4th & 5th Grades
  • Thursday, May 9 - Science for 4th Grades

We appreciate you ensuring that your children are present, on time, and well rested on these testing days. Thank you for your continued support of our students!

For the children,
Dr. Phillip Reavis

Personal appearance of students should promote health and safety, contribute to a climate conducive to teaching and learning and project a positive image of the District to the community.
