We know the 2020-2021 school year will look different from years past, but our goal is to ensure a safe and healthy learning environment for all students and staff members with instruction delivered in the most effective way possible. Horry County Schools (HCS) established the HCS Re-Opening Task Force in order to formulate a comprehensive plan which will utilize the work of the AccelerateEd Task Force, while at the same time taking into consideration the individual needs of our school district. The Horry County Board of Education approved the final Re-Opening Plan on August 4, 2020, which can be viewed here. On August 10, 2020, the South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) approved the HCS Re-Opening Plan. The SCDE approval letter can be viewed here.
