  • District Approved as eLearning District by EOC

    Posted by Jennifer Passmore on 6/16/2020
    Dorchester School District Two is one of 27 additional school districts recently approved by the Education Oversight Committee (EOC) to use eLearning days for school make-up days during the next school year, bringing the total of districts to 42. Additionally, 16 school districts are entering the program as Readiness Districts, interested school districts who are still building the capacity necessary for full implementation of eLearning. Dorchester School District Two was selected as a Year 3 District through a competitive application process.
    The pilot project, which is entering into Year 3, examines the use of eLearning when schools are forced to close (or separate students from the physical space) for short periods of time, in cases of inclement weather, utility emergencies, out of school suspension or student illness. This year, the EOC is collaborating with the SC Department of Education given the work that the SCDE has done with districts and schools due to the closure of schools in March. SCDE staff has assisted the EOC in choosing the eLearning districts. Both agencies will be providing support and coordinating technical assistance to Year 3 and Readiness Districts.
    "The work that has been done over the last two years in the eLearning districts provided a critical foundation for policymakers as all educators and students have adjusted to teaching and learning outside of schools," stated Matthew Ferguson, EOC Executive Director. "We look forward to working with other practitioners to make certain that technology, infrastructure and personnel exist in every district so that all SC students can have access to quality online learning whenever necessary."
