|NEW 2015 -2016 School Year Registration Guidelines|
RegistrationAll new and returning students must be registered each school year. A registration card must be completed and school fees should be paid.
New this year is the requirement that ALL students, new and returning bring TWO proofs of residency to registration.
Returning Students must bring the following to registration:
Documents to Bring for Registration of First Time Students:
Note: Age Requirement Child must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2015, to be eligible for 5 year old kindergarten.
Aspire (3rd-8th)- April 28-May 1
SC PASS (4th-8th) - May 7 & 8
The biggest change that our students will notice is that each Aspire subtest has a time limit. Students will be tested for approximately one hour per day, and the writing test must be completed in 30 minutes. Some students may not finish before they must stop working and turn in their tests. Our students are more familiar with the SC PASS tests, which have no specific time limits. Teachers are currently providing practice for students so that they will become more comfortable with the timed tests. The two different science tests will allow us to assess our students’ knowledge of the South Carolina science standards while still being able to compare our students’ achievement with their peers nationally
