Schedule: Why are there so many waive weeks listed in the upcoming schedule?

Posted by:

The waive weeks allow time for teacher planning and for students to make up work from the previous week. (The name comes from the fact that the SC Department of Education [SCDE] is "waiving" seat time requirements during this pandemic.) As long as students are successfully completing the work assigned by their teachers, there should be no impact on their progression to the next grade level.

SCDE will be issuing further guidance on instructional requirements during this time in the near future. Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented period.
