Wednesday, May 20 - Child Development Program Changes
Creek Road Child Development and Clemson Road Child Development have combined
to form the Richland School District Two Child Development Program. Starting in
the 2015–2016 school year, the program will offer needs-based, tuition-free 4-year-old
child development classes. Students qualify for the program based on risk
factors, free- or reduced-price-meal status, and developmental readiness.
Children must be 4 years old on or before September 1, 2015. Contact Debbie
Brady or Quinne Evans at 699.2536 for more information. The Montessori Magnet
Program at Pontiac will continue to accept 3- and 4-year-old children. Services
for 4-year-olds will not be tuition-based; tuition will be required for 3-year-olds.

Tuesday, March 24 - New Test for South Carolina
New laws passed by the South Carolina General Assembly have resulted in new tests that will be administered during the spring of 2015 throughout our state. Students in Grades 3-8 will take a new, timed test this school year called ACT Aspire. In Richland Two, our students will take the paper and pencil ACT Aspire tests for writing, English, reading and mathematics. They will not take the optional ACT Aspire test for science that some districts may use. This new test will help teachers understand where their students are succeeding and where extra help or academic focus is needed. By having a better understanding of a student’s skills, abilities, and knowledge, parents and teachers can determine what students need to know to be successful in school in the future.
Students in Grades 4-8 will continue to take SCPASS for science and social studies. Schools have the option of administering SCPASS as an online test or a paper and pencil test. Third-graders will not take any state tests for science and social studies.
