District earns 'Excellent' state Report Card

Georgetown County School District experienced another great year of achievement and progress toward students being college and career ready. Our district has earned its second consecutive “Excellent” Report Card absolute rating as students showed sustained growth academically.

On the 2013 Report Card Carvers Bay High, Georgetown High, Waccamaw High, Waccamaw Middle, Waccamaw Intermediate, and Waccamaw Elementary led the way as each earned an “Excellent” absolute rating. Pleasant Hill Elementary kept pace with its “Good” rating for the 2013 school year.

“Our 'Excellent' state Report Card is the result of a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication from our students, teachers, staff, parents and administrators. Great job!” said Superintendent Dr. Randy Dozier.

Georgetown County applauds the efforts of Maryville Elementary, Plantersville Elementary, Pleasant Hill Elementary, and Sampit Elementary as they were awarded the honor of earning the “Reward Schools for Performance” -- the highest performing Title I Schools in a given year. These schools have attained an “A” or “B” for the last two years. These schools do not have a significant achievement gap and serve student populations with poverty levels above 50 percent. It is an honor to be named to this distinguished list of high performing schools.  

 Also, Georgetown County School District’s graduation rate of 86.2 percent exhibits an outstanding effort in seeing that its students are prepared for the choices in their career paths.

 “We are very thrilled that our diligent efforts have produced outstanding results,” said Patti Hammel, executive director of Student Performance and Federal Programs. “We are constantly looking at the ways we engage our students in learning to accelerate their progress. With the tremendous support of our school board, administrators, teachers, students, parents, and community members we applaud the great group efforts! Congratulations for a job well done!”
