What's Happening in Scotland County Schools
Parent/Guardian School Climate Survey
Scotland County Schools values input from our parents and guardians. While our district has much to be proud of--highest graduation rate to-date, increased standardized test scores, record amount of scholarships awarded to seniors--we are always looking for ways to continue to improve. But we need your help. We are in the process of gathering feedback about our schools and district from not only parents/guardians, but also from our students and staff. The completely confidential information that you provide will be useful in helping make your student's school even better!
As you answer the questions, focus on your personal experience with the school and district, as well as your perceptions of your child's experience as a student. There are no right or wrong answers--this is not a test. We just want to know how you feel. The survey should take you approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please try to answer all of the questions.
As always, thank you for supporting our schools, staff, and students and thank you in advance for taking the time respond to the survey.

Coats for Kids
We are still accepting donations for our 'Coats for Kids' coat drive. Unfortunately, we have many students that don't own a coat to keep them warm. Imagine how cold it is standing at a bus stop early in the morning with no c...oat or just a thin jacket...
Please consider bringing new or gently used (and cleaned) coats to the AB Gibson Center (Central Office). We have two large bins in the front lobby where you can drop them off. We will then distribute the coats to all of our schools throughout the district to be given to students in need.
If you have any questions, or need additional information, please contact Meredith Bounds, SCS Public Information Officer, at 277-4459 x345.
Thanks in advance for your donation and for all that you do to support our students.
