    Read to Succeed (R2S) Educator Coursework Information

    Any educator who holds a current professional SC Teaching Certificate is required to complete R2S coursework in order to renew that certificate. R2S courses only offer renewal credits. HCSD will sponsor online R2S courses through VirtualSC Professional Development for certified educators who hold a professional certificate and are employed in a full-time teaching position. Beginning with the 2020-2021 school year, VirtualSC Professional Development will no longer offer winter courses. Courses will be only be offered for spring, summer and fall sessions. Information regarding those courses will be updated here. Contact your building level certification specialists if you need more information regarding R2S Endorsements. Anyone who registers directly through VirtualSC Professional Development and not through the HCSD pre-enrollment process will be responsible for course payment. 

    Important information regarding endorsements and timelines for completion can be found on the South Carolina SDE Website link below. Please review the information on the SDE website to make certain you enroll for the correct course(s) that are required for your area of certification. Contact your building level certification specialist for assistance. 

    Pre-enrollment information for Spring 2021 will open in True North Logic on November 16th at 8:00 am and close December 7th at 5:00 pm. Educators will then receive a "Next Steps" email from HCSD to complete the registration process once the pre-enrollment period ends in TNLogic.  Course information will also be shared with principals, coaches and building level certification contacts. Courses will run from March 1, 2021 to April 18, 2021.
