Superintendent s Message
Welcome to our website. Our district is helping all students develop the World Class Skills of the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate by continued growth in academic achievement and educational opportunities. Our mission is to encourage and support students with ongoing motivation and opportunities to prepare them for successful lives in an ever-changing world. We are driven by the continuing effort to achieve excellence, the foundation on which we build our success.
The Board of Trustees and district staff are committed to continuous improvement and innovative strategies and programs enabling every student to succeed. We firmly believe that our schools must provide technology-rich learning environments where students are fully engaged in collaborative, inquiry- and project-based learning to solve real-world problems.
The district has made significant progress in implementing new technologies to better the education of Florence County School District Two students. Students in grades 2-5 are assigned a Chromebook for school use while students in grades 6-12 are issued a laptop for school and home use. All instructional spaces have interactive panels.
We have expanded our curricular programs to include a Montessori program for grades PK-4 while infusing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) into the curriculum, allowing more problem-based learning experiences in grades K-12. Through the STEM program, we now offer courses with biomedical science, computer science, and engineering emphasis. The elementary/middle school continues to implement the Leader in Me program for personal growth and development of students’ 21st Century skills.
In partnership with Florence-Darlington Technical College and Francis Marion University, Hannah-Pamplico High School has expanded the dual credit program. The goal of the program is to provide students the opportunity to earn college credit hours while still in high school. In August 2019 through a partnership with the Darla Moore Foundation, juniors and seniors joined other regional students in taking dual credit courses at The Continuum in Lake City. Students may take courses face-to-face on campus and off campus, online, and in a distance-learning lab.
Our district’s successes continue to reflect an unwavering commitment to provide all students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become productive members of our society and our world. The vision we work toward each day is that every student entrusted to us leaves our schools as a fully competitive, well-rounded individual qualified for college or career and prepared for the challenges of the 21st Century.
