    Read to Succeed (R2S) Educator Coursework Information

    Any educator who holds a current SC Teaching Certificate is required to complete R2S coursework in order to renew that certificate. R2S courses only offer renewal credits and are not graduate-level courses. 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. Courses will be offered for winter, 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.

    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. Educators renewing a certificate in June 2020 are required to have the Read to Succeed requirement met. The SDE link below outlines the specifics of the R2S requirement.

    Pre-enrollment for Winter 2020 R2S courses opens in TrueNorthLogic on October 18, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. and closes November 7, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Information regarding the next steps in this process and the actual course start and end dates will be made available once pre-registration closes in TrueNorthLogic.
