Welcome to Chester County School District!
From the Superintendent's Desk
To Chester County School District Families & Staff,
I hope that Spring Break will give you and your families an opportunity to rest, so that we can finish the school year strong. Let us also take the time to reflect on hardships the past year has brought. As a community, we should continue to work together in order to overcome those hurdles. I am proud to represent a district of hard working, devoted, and diverse educators and students. Chester County has been supportive as I started in my new role, as Superintendent, and it is my goal to continue moving our district forward for the benefit of all our students. I would also like to thank our CCSD Staff—nurses, support staff, teachers, and administrators for remaining dedicated and strong through these turbulent and uncertain times. We certainly hold true to the statement, “CHESTER COUNTY STRONG!”
I would like to take an opportunity to discuss a few reminders. Beginning on Monday, April 12, 2021, the district will shift to 5-days of in-person instruction for all students currently attending school in-person. CCSD Virtual Academy students will continue receiving instruction online. Three designated eLearning Days will allow students to work with teachers for additional assistance. Those days are April 30, May 28, and June 11, 2021.
Graduations are set for June 24, 2021. Each of the high schools will have its own ceremony at their respective stadiums. These will be ticketed events, and the number of allotted tickets per student will depend on spacing and current COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. The District also suspended all prom activities for this year. This was not an easy decision to make, but with the continued limitations on social gatherings, it was one that the district felt was optimal in ensuring the safety of all parties involved.
Please continue to visit our website at (www.chester.k12.sc.us) for additional information and updates. I look forward to our continued work in “Breaking Barriers and Building Futures” in Chester County Schools for ALL students. We will continue our journey of becoming a District of Distinction.
