In 2014, the state of South Carolina passed an all-inclusive litereacy mandate, aiming to address state-wide deficits in academic achievement. With a particular focus on third-grade reading proficiency, Act 284 (Read to Succeed) offers a complete framework that includes teacher preparation, student instruction, and early intervention. This law provides students in South Carolina the opportunity to attain the literacy skills necessary for academic and professional accomplishment.

Our school also has its own school-wide Reading Plan which aims to improve reaing achievement among our students.
