The Official Web Site of the State of South Carolina
Here SIC members and officers can find useful information, materials, and ideas to help them carry out their SIC duties.
Here parents and community members can access resources on SICs and other family/community engagement efforts.
Here school and district leaders can locate information to aid them in supporting the effectiveness and impact of their SICs.

Welcome to the new, revitalized SC-SIC website!

We hope you find that the fresher look, easier navigation, and additional resources will make this site a staple for all SICs in their weekly, monthly, and yearly operations. Community members, school districts, and others interested in School Improvement Councils will also find answers to their questions here.

Theoretical physicist and mathematician Freeman Dyson put it this way: “There is a great satisfaction in building tools for other people to use.” At SC-SIC, it’s our pleasure – our calling, if you will – to provide tools for School Improvement Councils to use to build up their SICs and their schools, and to assist in building better futures for the students of South Carolina. Welcome, all!
