District Announcements
Students to take new state tests this spring

SC students will take new state tests beginning in April 2015.  These new tests are ACT Aspire™, ACT Workkeys® and The ACT®.  Not only will the tests reflect the achievement level of students, but the new tests will help teachers understand where their students are succeeding and where extra help or academic focus is needed.  These tests will be an important tool in ensuring student success.  Attached is a link to helpful information from the SC State Department of Education on the new state testing program and what it will mean for your student.


New Website Coming June 8th

Dorchester School District Two is proud to announce the launch of our new website platform. On June 8th, 2015 we will transition from our current School Fusion platform to Edline.  In order to make the transition successful for all of our users, we are encouraging parents, students and staff to save any personal files currently stored on School Fusion to an alternate location.  As of June 8th, you will no longer be able to access websites or files on School Fusion. Please see the attached document for instructions on saving personal files.

Thanks to community feedback, we have organized our new websites to allow for ease of navigation in order to effectively communicate with the Dorchester School District Two community.  Parents will have the ability to quickly access up-to-date information on what is happening in the district and their child’s school.  We will keep you informed regarding web site features and the progress of the transition.
