Student Achievement Goals

Student Achievement Goals

Students enrolled in the School District of Pickens County will demonstrate a minimum of one year's growth in academic achievement and will demonstrate college and career readiness by the time of graduation from high school.

In order to achieve success, all SDPC courses will develop a curriculum that supports SC's approved standards. The curriculum should demonstrate horizontal and vertical alignment throughout the district and promote college, career, and citizenship readiness. 

Goals are based on the District Strategic Plan​ for 2013/14 through 2017/18.
