DORCHESTER SCHOOL DISTRICT TWO

School Choice and Supplemental Services  
No Child Left Behind

Dorchester School District Two is committed to providing the best education possible for every child and is offering School Choice or Supplemental Educational Services (free tutoring to those students who qualify) for the 2012-2013 school year to students attending schools identified with the Focus status by the South Carolina Department of Education. Transportation for School Choice is determined on an individual basis with consideration given to health, safety, travel time, and instructional impact. Students must return to their school attendance area once completing all grade levels at the receiving school.
Newington Elementary, Summerville Elementary and Windsor Hill Arts Infused Elementary Schools will be offering choice to all students enrolled in grades K-5 during the 2012-2013 school year. Although these schools have an overall performance rating of an A or B, they are being identified as a Focus School because of achievement gaps for students in one or more of the following subgroups: low-income households, minority students and student with disabilities. Students enrolled in grades 4-5 who qualify may choose to participate in supplemental educational services (free tutoring) rather than school choice.
Letters to the parents of these three schools were mailed on August 2, 2012. This letter included further details of School Choice and Supplemental Educational Services and a request form for School Choice. Parents or guardians desiring to transfer their child under School Choice should drop off or mail the request by August 15, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. to the Title I Office:

Attn: Anna Cribb
102 Green Wave Blvd.
Summerville, SC 29483
