Everyone is concerned about school safety. It has been, is, and will continue to be our Board and Administration's top priority for our schools to remain a safe place to learn. We have a multitude of safety measures and procedures in place in our schools and district offices, but we know that even with all the camera systems, drills, and exercises we conduct, our most valuable security system that we have on our campuses each day remains the many thousands of eyes and ears of our students and staff. We can’t stress enough how strongly we encourage anyone and everyone to say something to someone – a teacher, a counselor, an administrator, or law enforcement personnel – if they hear or see anything suspicious or ever have any concerns. Let us teach our children to always be kind. Let us do everything we can, with all that we can, to ensure that our schools and community remain safe.

Scotland County Schools Celebrates 'An Evening with the Arts'
On Thursday, April 12, the commons and auditorium at Scotland High School were filled with the sights and sounds of our elementary, middle, and high school art, choral, and theater student talent. We could not be prouder to have the opportunity to showcase the incredible gifts and abilities of our students and look forward to growing this event bigger and better every year!
2018 Robotics Showcase
On Saturday, April 14, the gym at Scotland High School was filled with elementary, middle, and high school robotics team members showcasing their 21st century talents and skills. While the opportunity to witness the amazing technical skills of our students was indeed impressive, it was equally awesome to see the collaboration amongst team members and with other teams across the district. With STEM related careers expected to grow more than 9 million between 2012 and 2022, we couldn't be prouder that our students have this opportunity to learn these skills that will make them competitive in their academic and work careers after graduation.
