Jiaying Tong Named 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholar
Riverside High School senior Jiaying Tong has been named a 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholar. Jiaying Tong is the daughter of Kebo Tong and Qi Zhu.
The announcement was made today by U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, who recognized 161 high school seniors for their accomplishments in academics, the arts and career and technical education fields.
The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars selects scholars annually based on their academic success, artistic and technical excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as evidence of community service, leadership and demonstrated commitment to high ideals.
Of the 3.6 million students expected to graduate from high school this year, more than 5,200 candidates qualified for the 2019 awards determined by outstanding performance on the College Board SAT and ACT exams or through nominations made by Chief State School Officers, other partner recognition organizations and the National YoungArts Foundation’s nationwide YoungArts™ competition.
As directed by Presidential Executive Order, the 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholars are comprised of one young man and one young woman from each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and U.S. families living abroad, as well as 15 chosen at-large, 20 Scholars in the Arts and 20 Scholars in Career and Technical Education.
The 2019 ceremony will be held June 23, when each honoree will receive a Presidential Scholar Medallion.

End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) - Spring 2019
The South Carolina Board of Education requires participation in the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) for students enrolled in gateway courses which are awarded credit in English 1, Algebra 1/Intermediate Algebra, Biology 1, and the United States History and the Constitution. The EOCEP examination scores count 20 percent in the calculation of the student’s final grade. Additionally, students enrolled in an English 2 course will be administered a field test which consists of a writing and a reading section. Scores will not be reported for the English 2 field test.
The EOCEP tests are untimed; however, 2-3 hours is the estimated test administration time for most students to complete the test. Students are expected to complete the test during a single day unless the student has an IEP or 504 Accommodation Plan specifying administration of a single test over multiple days.
EOC Dates at Riverside:
- May 15 - English 1 Writing
- May 16 - English 2 Writing
- May 20 - Biology
- May 21 - US History
- May 22 - English 1 Reading
- May 23 - English 2 Reading
- May 24 - Algebra 1 / Intermediate Algebra
To prepare students for online testing, a public version of the Online Tools Training (OTT) is available for students to interact with the testing software and tools before the “real” administration of the assessment. While the OTT simulates the test experience, correct answers and scores are not provided. A public version of the OTT is available at the SC Online Assessment website (Use Google Chrome to access this site.) This public version does not include audio for oral administration or video for sign language.
- Rest on the nights before these tests.
- Eat a nourishing breakfast on the morning of each test.
- Be in school and on time, except in cases of illness.
- Listen attentively to the teacher’s directions so he/she will know exactly what to do.
