20-21 Assessment Update from Bobby Murphy - Director of Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment
Anderson County Schools invites our community to inspect the following 2020-2021 School Year Assessment Update information.  It's no secret, the past couple of school years have proven to bring extraordinary challenges for students, families, and staff.  Anderson County Schools is utilizing the information gained from our 2020-2021 assessments as an important “temperature check” that allows us to better track and address student recovery. The results will be used to help direct COVID-related recovery efforts supported by state and federal relief funds. We owe it to our students to use every piece of information we have to help them succeed.  Thank you for your time and partnership as we continue to strengthen our education system together.
 
Message from Superintendent Mitchell - TikTok Challenge

Parents and Guardians, you may have heard of the recent TikTok “Devious Licks” challenge in September encouraging students to vandalize school property. Please be aware that news sources are reporting that the trend is continuing, on a month to month basis, with new concerning challenges emerging. Parents, guardians and families can help prevent incidents by being aware of their student's access to social media accounts as well as reminding students through conversations at home about being respectful to others, their property and making good decisions.  Reminding students of the consequences that may come from inappropriate actions if participating in destruction challenges also provides the same clear message at home that they are receiving at school.  We appreciate all of the support that we receive from our parents and guardians. 


I was recently asked several questions by The Anderson News concerning the TikTok challenge and how it has affected us. Follow the link above to see those questions answered as well as links to resources to help parents/guardians with social media questions.
