    Start the new year off with a resolution to get better grades and a new attitude towards school.  If you set your goals high, you can achieve bigger and better things. You should also make SOARING back to your base school, with a new improved version of yourself, a part of your resolution. Show the world that 2020 will be the best year ever for you.

  • Advisory 12/17- 12/20

    Posted by Jennifer Myers on 12/17/2019 8:38:00 AM

    This week during advisory students will be working on state mandated Erin's Law modules.

    Dear Parents:

    In the year of 2014, the State of South Carolina passed Act 293 known as “Erin’s Law,” as part of health and safety education for its public schools.  The purpose of the law is to ensure all students, pre-kindergarten through high school, receive this prevention instruction during the academic school year.  The intent of Erin’s Law is to give students skills in knowing how to stay safe from sexual assault and how to report any incidents of sexual assault. 

    The South Carolina Department of Education created Erin’s Law instructional units in support of the new legislation that amended the Comprehensive Health Education Act.  South Carolina Code of Laws Section 59-32-20 (B) was amended to read that the State Board of Education through the South Carolina Department of Education “shall select or develop instructional units in sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention, with separate units appropriate for each age level from four-year-old kindergarten through twelfth grade.”

    Parental notification is being done by Horry County Schools for the purpose of keeping you informed on this very important State Department of Education initiative and the requirement under South Carolina law for local school districts to implement comprehensive health education programs, and provide annually age-appropriate instruction in sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention to all students in four-year-old kindergarten through twelfth grade.

    Sincerely,

    Jimmy McCullough

    Horry County Education Center

    Principal

     

    If you are interested in learning more about Erin’s Law or the instructional materials associated with it, please contact Tammy Trulove, District Director of Health and Safety Services, at 843-488-6805 or trulove@horrycountyschools.net.
