A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

 

Dear Marlboro School of Discovery Community,

What an exciting and productive start to the 2014-2015 school year!  I am pleased with the progress of our staff and students related to our academic and performing arts programs.  Additionally, I must commend our staff and students for being recognized as an “A” school on the federal ESEA report and a silver award winning school according to the South Carolina Department of Education.

Thank you for all of your positive support as we move each and every student towards our goal of excellence without excuses.   

 
         


Parents' and Guardians' Rights Notification

Parents and guardians in the Marlboro County School District have the right to learn about the following qualifications of their child's teacher: state licensure requirements for the grade level and content areas taught, the current licensing status of your child's teacher, and baccalaureate/graduate certification/degree.

You may also request the qualifications of an instructional paraprofessional who serves your student in a Title I program or if your school operates a school-wide Title I program. Parents or guardians may request this information from the Federal Programs Office by calling 843.479.3707 or by sending a letter of request in care of Federal Programs, 100 Matheson Street, Bennettsville, South Carolina, 29512.

Marlboro County School District ensures that parents or guardians will be notified in writing if their child has been assigned, or has been taught by a teacher for four or more consecutive weeks who is not considered highly qualified.


Receive Notification of Delayed Buses

 

The Marlboro County School District Transportation Department is using Bus Bulletin notification system to notify parents, students and school administrators when buses are delayed or have encountered schedule changes.  Marlboro County is the second school district in South Carolina to use this new system that aids with communication of vital transportation related information.

 

Bus Bulletin notifications are received via text messages, phone calls, e-mails or any combination of the three.  Parents can provide as many as seven different contact numbers, helping to ensure that wherever they are they receive notifications in a timely manner.  Notifications are typically received within minutes of the time they are sent, so parents receive the information while it still matters.

 

Here are a few key points for parents who are interested in signing up to receive notifications:

· There is no cost for this service.
· Registration is simple and fast.
· Parents can choose to receive text messages, phone calls, and e-mails or any combination.
· All contact information is stored securely and will not be shared or sold, and no student information is required.

 

Parents who want to sign up to receive notifications or find out more about this service should visit www.BusBulletin.com/parents.

 Director of Transportation
