Jackson School WIG:
Our school-wide WIG ( Wildly Important Goal) for this school year is in math. Our goal this year is for our students to improve on the math skills necessary for success at each grade level. The expectation is for each student to master one skill each week at 80% or higher. Students and teachers will use the program Exact Path to track the mastery of skills. Discuss with your child their success in Exact Path. This program can be accessed from home for extra practice.

Delayed Start Wednesdays:
Beginning August 21, 2019, KCSD will have their first delayed start for the 2019-2020 school year.
The Kershaw County School District (KCSD) is implementing a delayed start schedule on Wednesdays to provide additional professional development time for teachers without disrupting families’ schedules.
Bus routes, car rider lines and breakfast times will not be changed. Students can arrive at the normal start time or choose to come at the delayed start time, which will generally be 30 minutes later. Students who arrive on time will be supervised by adults and able to participate in learning activities.
Delayed start Wednesdays allow teachers to evaluate data and collaborate on lessons on a consistent schedule. As we develop our Professional Learning Communities, this weekly time will allow us to be more effective in improving our students’ academic achievement.
Instruction will begin at 8:10 am and students will be tardy at 8:10 am on Delay Start Wednesdays.
