  • Parent Opt In/Opt Out Survey 

    survey

     

    Dear Scotland County Parents and Guardians:

    We are once again opening up our parent survey concerning your desire to either:

    1. Allow your child to come back to a hybrid instruction model of in-person and remote learning
    2. Have your child remain on a 100% virtual platform for the remainder of the school year.  By choosing this, please understand that this choice is for the remainder of the year.

    If you have already filled out the survey and you do not wish to change your response, no action is required.  If the current climate of the pandemic has changed your position of returning vs. staying virtual, please fill out the survey again and we will allow this response to be your official choice and we will replace your previous survey submission.   CLICK HERE to take the survey.  Please submit one survey for every child in your care.  The survey closes on Friday, January 22 at 12:00 pm. 

    We thank you for your time and effort.

    In-Person Instruction Update

    update

    During their regular meeting on Monday, January 11, the Scotland County Schools Board of Education made the decision to delay the start of in-person instruction for students. Originally, the Board had hoped that students would be able to return to the classroom in the Plan B/Hybrid model on January 29. However, the latest COVID data from the Scotland County Health Department and the CDC shows a continued increase in cases and community spread. The Board also took into consideration when making their decision the increase in COVID hospitalization and ICU rates.
    The Board of Education will readdress the possible start of in-person instruction during their February 22 meeting. As always, our priority is and will remain the well-being and safety of our students and staff.

  • Board Selects New Superintendent - Dr. Takeda LeGrand
     
    Takeda LeGrand    
     
    The Scotland County Board of Education is proud to announce that Dr. Takeda LeGrand has accepted the Board’s offer to become Scotland County Schools’ new superintendent.  Dr. LeGrand’s selection followed a thorough process with the help of the North Carolina School Boards Association, during which many talented and dedicated educators applied for the position.  Even among a group of very impressive finalists, Dr. LeGrand stood out.   The Board is convinced she is exactly the leader that Scotland County Schools needs for the coming years, and enthusiastically welcomes her to our team.
     
    Dr. LeGrand comes most recently from seven years as an associate superintendent in the Montgomery County Schools, during which her duties included, among many other things, a focus on accountability and diversity.  Prior to her time in Montgomery County, Dr. LeGrand had served in Richmond, Anson, and Union Counties in various roles, including as a teacher, curriculum coordinator, assistant principal, and in human resources.  She has also worked for the Department of Public Instruction in the areas of curriculum and instruction.
     
    Dr. LeGrand’s official start date is January 1, 2021.  The Scotland County Board of Education welcomes her and her family to our community and looks forward to a successful partnership for many years to come.
     
    Please join us in welcoming Dr. LeGrand to our district and community!  #SCSgrowsgreatness

  • SCS Reaches All-Time Grad Rate High

    Graduation Rate

    Talk about something BIG to celebrate! The NC Department of Public Instruction released district and state graduation data and we are proud to report that Scotland County Schools reached it's highest graduation rate to date - 91% - and ranked higher than the state graduation rate by 3.4% for the 2019-20 school year. As Dr. Hargrave said, 'This is not just a celebration at the high school level. Research shows that for some students, they start thinking about dropping out as early as third-grade. We start talking to students as soon as they start school about the goal of graduating high school. While it gets reported at the high school, it’s a total district effort. While we take pride in it, we can’t be satisfied until every child graduates and our rate is 100%.'
