    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 in the 2020-2021 school year, VirtualSC Professional Development no longer offers 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. Once enrolled, participants who fail to successfully complete a course will be required to self-pay in order to retake that course.

    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) required for your area of certification. It is the responsibility of each educator to make certain you sign up for and take the correct course. Contact your building level certification specialist if you have questions regarding coursework or need assistance.
