ATTENDANCE IS IMPORTANT ON THE ALL DAYS OF SCHOOL
Parents who plan to enroll their child in Sumter School District for the first time are encouraged to enroll as soon as possible to avoid last minute crowds. Parents may register their child in the school zoned for their residence during regular school hours. Persons unsure of their school zone may contact the district’s attendance office at (803) 469-6900, extension 507. Children must be 4 or 5 on or before Sept. 1 to enroll in prekindergarten or kindergarten, respectively.
State law mandates that children ages 5 to 17 must be in Uponschool.registration, parents are required to provide school personnel with the child’s official birth certificate or other proof of name and age, proof of residence, and the SC Immunization Form (DHEC 2740).Thedistrict recommends that parents of children transferring from another school district also bring the child’s latest report card. Children transferring from out of state must have their health certificate information on a South Carolina form. Parents must take out-of-state certificates to a doctor or clinic in South Carolina to have the information transferred to the correct form.
10 2022-2023 Sumter School District Welcome Guide
According to state law, students must attend a minimum of 180 days of school a year. New state attendance requirements identify a student as absent if a student is not in attendance for at least 50% of the instructional day. Additionally, students designated as absent (regardless of the reason) for 10% or more days of instruction will be reported to the State Department of Education as chronically absent.Written notes from the parent, guardian or attending physician must be submitted within three days after returning to school or the absence will be considered unlawful. An absence is considered lawful when it is the result of illness, death in the immediate family, emergencies, and recognized religious holidays. A limited number of parent notes may be accepted at the discretion of the principal.
It is imperative that students attend school regularly. While some absences for illness are unavoidable, nothing can replace the educational, cultural, and social contacts students experience through regular participation in class. Students with good attendance achieve more than students who are often absent. Attendance is also a major criterion in preparing students for the world of work.
South Carolina law states that a student is deemed truant after three consecutive unlawful absences or a total of five unlawful absences. School attendance personnel will contact the parent/guardian regarding unlawful absences and will schedule a conference to develop cooperatively a Student Attendance Intervention Plan, as required by law. High school students who have more than five unlawful absences in a one-unit course or three unlawful absences in a half-unit course may lose credit for the course. Absences are counted in the high schools and middle schools by class, so students are encouraged to report promptly to every class.Forfurther information on attendance laws, contact Coordinator of Attendance Services at (803) 469-6900, extension 507.

The Sumter Partners In Education program is a joint venture between the Greater Sumter Chamber of Commerce and Sumter’s public and private schools. By establishing and maintaining creative, quality partnerships to support Sumter’s schools, our community is making a positive difference for Sumter’s children. Individuals, businesses and groups are all instrumental in the success of our partnership efforts.Nobusiness or organization is too large or small to serve as a partner. Each can contribute in a variety of ways, all of which are integral in ensuring each student receives the best education possible. Partner activities include financial contributions, in-kind donations and services, sponsorship of events and awards, attendance and academic incentives, internships, volunteering and mentoring. In turn, schools offer the partners what they can in order to make the partnership truly beneficial for both partners. Partnerships not only benefit students and schools, they also strengthen and provide advantages to the community. Today’s students will be the workforce of tomorrow. By investing in students’ education, the local community is essentially investing in itself to ensure its success for tomorrow. If you are interested in becoming a community partner or adopting a school, please contact Shelly Galloway, executive director of communication and community engagement, at 469-6900, extension 102. Become a Sumter Partner In Education, and help make students’ dreams come true.
14 2022-2023 Sumter School District Welcome Guide
The first and most important priority of Sumter School District is the safety of our students and staff. Certainly in this day and age we can never be absolutely protected against all circumstances, but we do educate our students and staff throughout the year and rely on our parents to help us ensure we reinforce our own safety procedures. Our joint emergency action plans were developed in accordance with state and federal best practices and in partnership with local public safety professionals. Law enforcement is a partner in the annual review of the plans, and they evaluate our implementation of emergency drills and provide training for school staff as requested. The review of our plans reveal strengths and weaknesses and, in some cases, procedures are revised or enhanced. Each joint emergency action plan at the school level helps prepare school sites on lockdown drills, evacuation procedures, natural disaster precautions as well as communication with families, students, parents and communities during a crisis. School safety procedures also address the access of our buildings by the public. A variety of drills are conducted on a regular basis. Training in school safety for school staff takes place throughout the year, and the school district also provides immediate crisis response training for the Disturbance Intervention Response teams and the Mental Health Support teams. Again, the safety and security of our students and staff is a top priority at all times in Sumter School District. Working together, we can ensure that the educational process is allowed to continue in the safe, uninterrupted environment that our children deserve.
ANNOUNCEMENTS ARE ONLY MADE IF THERE IS A DELAY OR CLOSING.

EVERY STEP ALONG THE PATHWAY IS CRUCIAL TO MAKING EACH STUDENT'S FUTURE A CAREERSUCCESS. Readiness Employment:
Sumter School District exposes students in grades K-12 to college and career readiness information. At the elementary level, students participate in career awareness activities; middle school students participate in career exploration activities such as interest and values assessments and the 8th grade Individual Graduation Plan conference; and in high school, students receive career guidance services to include interest skills and values assessments, job shadowing opportunities, internships, youth apprenticeships and cooperative learning opportunities that support choosing a cluster and major within the curriculum frameworks as part of their annual Individual Graduation Plan Conference. At all levels, CATE/Career Specialists sponsor field studies, which are different from field trips in that the field study is intended to expose students to career related information relevant to their age group. These activities are all in accordance with the Education and Economic Development Act’s (EEDA) initiative of Personal Pathways to Success. Some of the programs used are the Microburst Employability Skills program and South Carolina Information System. WorkBased Learning (WBL) is a coordinated, sponsored, coherent sequence of workplace experiences that are related to students’ career goals and/or interests, are based on instructional preparation and are performed in partnership with local businesses, industries or other organizations in the community. WBL enables students to apply classroom instruction in a real-world business or service-oriented work environment.

Kendall, a fourth-grade math and science teacher, has 14 years of service to education. The most rewarding part of her career is helping students discover talents and strengths they didn't know they had.
Denise is a media specialist and has 23 years of service to education. The most rewarding part of her career has been knowing, in some small way, that she has made a difference in our world. It is an awesome responsibility to know that she is able to inspire and influence some of our future leaders while building their self-esteem.
Erica, a first-grade teacher, has 24 years of service to education. The most rewarding part of her career happened the first time when a former student was the keynote speaker, and he recognized her as being his inspiration and reason for becoming an educator. The most rewarding moment recently in Erica’s career came about when she hosted a practicum student who made such a great impact on her students, and she asked if the practicum student could return to her class to complete her student teaching.
