What are LEAP Days?
The South Carolina General Assembly approved funding for five additional days before the beginning of the school year in 4K-8th grade. CSD2 chose to use LEAP days to test Measures of Academic Progress or MAP test. These five days will not be our typical instructional days but rather days to Learn, Evaluate, Analyze, and Prepare (LEAP) into learning!
Congratulations to our 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year, Ms. Blanding!
In an effort to support our school’s Attendance and Tardiness Campaign, with the help of Attendance Works, we have developed ways to combat chronic absenteeism. Our strategy is to provide proactive ideas and strategies to engage educators, families, and the community to improve student attendance and decrease tardiness. It is extremely important that students are on time and present every day. Research shows that student absences impact a child’s ability to succeed in school. In addition, there is evidence that chronic absenteeism from school is a primary cause of low academic achievement and a powerful predictor of a student’s risk of dropping out of school (Attendance Works).
MES Parents, please help us to help your child/children succeed in school. Success goes hand in hand
with good attendance!!
