The Dorchester School District Two Board of Trustees will hold a workshop on April 21st at Knightsville Elementary School, immediately following the public budget meeting. The purpose of the workshop will be a discussion of the district’s school resource officer program.
SC students will take new state tests beginning in April 2015. These new tests are ACT Aspire™, ACT Workkeys® and The ACT®. Not only will the tests reflect the achievement level of students, but the new tests will help teachers understand where their students are succeeding and where extra help or academic focus is needed. These tests will be an important tool in ensuring student success. Attached is a link to helpful information from the SC State Department of Education on the new state testing program and what it will mean for your student.
The answer is simple: YOU!
Motivated people from all walks of life should support public education. Whether you are a parent, a political leader, a small buisness owner, a local or state decision maker, or a member of your community who believes in the American dream, when you take a stand for America's public schools you help every child succeed in the classroom and prepare for a brighter future.

Fred Hoose, district bus transportation liaison, has conducted an extensive review of district bus operations over the past months and reported that the district could operate the bus transportation system more efficiently and more economically. By taking over bus operations rather than outsourcing this service, it is projected that the district would save approximately $200,000. The Board of Trustees and district leadership have worked toward improvement of student bus service this year with several initiatives, such as the purchase of 15 additional school buses for next year approved by the Board of Trustees at the March 16th board meeting.
