The second event is "Go to Work with a Parent/Relative Day" which allows 7th and 8th graders to shadow someone for a day. Students must have a parent permission form signed and turned in to their homeroom teacher by January 26th in order to participate. Click the title above to access the permission form.
Lugoff-Elgin Middle School is proud to announce that Daniel Boyce, 8th grade History teacher, has earned his Google Educator Level 1 certification. This certification professionally distinguishes a teacher's abilities to "successfully implement G Suite for Education into their teaching practice in order to enhance teaching and learning". To prepare for the certification exam, Boyce completed Google for Education's self-paced online training program, earning badges from LEMS Lead Technology Instructor, Nikki Ingram. In addition to Boyce, more than 15 other LEMS teachers are actively working towards Level 1 certification, completing the same online training, as well as participating in after school trainings with Ingram. Boyce is the first of this group to achieve his certification.
Parents/Guardians in the Kershaw County School District have the right to learn about the following qualifications of their child's teacher: state licensure requirements for the grade level and content areas taught, the current licensing status of your child's teacher, and baccalaureate/graduate certification/degree. You may also request the qualifications of an instructional paraprofessional who serves your student in a Title I program or if your school operates a schoolwide Title I program. Parents/Guardians may request this information from the Office of the Superintendent by calling Tim Hopkins or by sending a letter of request to the Office of the Superintendent, 2029 West DeKalb Street, Camden SC, 29020. The Kershaw County School District ensures that parents will be notified in writing if their child has been assigned, or has been taught by a teacher for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not considered highly qualified.
