Dear Parent or Guardian,

On January 12, 2021 the Edgefield County Board of Education voted to approve the recommendations below.

Beginning January 25, 2021 (second semester)
● Any student (K-12) that chooses to transition to full remote learning must stay in that learning model
for the entire second semester.
● Beginning second semester STHS and STCTC students will attend school 5 days a week (in-person or
remote). Full remote instruction will be provided using the VirtualSC Franchise program, with the
exception of AP/Honors, CTE and Related Arts not provided through VirtualSC. These students will
have the option to take these courses in person on either the STHS or STCTC campus.

Therefore, beginning January 25, all Edgefield County School District (ECSD) schools will operate on a five
day week model. Parents continue to have the option of face-to-face or full remote instructional models.
However, parents who choose to start or transition any student (K-12) to full remote learning must stay in that
learning model for the entire second semester.

Any parent that wishes for their student to move from full remote back to face-to-face should notify the school
administration of that request on or before Thursday, January 21 at 3:00 pm. The change to face-to-face will
take effect beginning Monday, January 25. Beyond this window, approval of requests for special/hardship
circumstances can be considered on a case-by-case basis by the school principal.
Any parent that wishes for their student to move from face-to-face to full remote should notify the school
administration of that request in writing. Administration will work with guidance counselors and full remote
teachers in order to schedule the students appropriately.

Thank you for your continued patience and support as we work through this pandemic. We look forward to
partnering with you to further develop your student academically while maintaining safety to the best extent
possible. If you have any questions about this decision, please feel free to call your child's school for further
details.
