Early Dismissal Days
This year, the District 7 Board of Trustees has approved three professional development days for Spartanburg High School teachers. As you may or may not know, we have many changes coming our way as the state is changing our accountability test by implementing the ACT/Workkeys to take the place of HSAP. We are also working hard to improve our technology integration and infusing technology throughout our curriculum. It is necessary for our teachers to have the proper training to best benefit our service to your student. The three professional development days for teachers to meet the required trainings are below.
NOVEMBER 12, FEBRUARY 11, APRIL 15
On these days students will be dismissed at 1pm while teachers will go into their training sessions. We have modified the schedule below so that students will attend each class on these days. This was important to our teachers. Thanks so much for your understanding and help with this.
