Welcome to SC-SIC

The SC School Improvement Council office in Columbia will be closed through at least April 1 by declaration of the Governor. SC-SIC staff will be working remotely. Replies to calls or emails may be delayed during this time. Please contact us with any questions.


Governor Henry McMaster and South Carolina Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman have announced that South Carolina’s schools will remain closed for the duration of the month of April.


SC-SIC, together with Carolina Family Engagement Center, is working to bring resources, guidance, and information to schools, families, and communities. Please find our COVID-19 Resource page here.


Dear SIC Members and Friends,

In light of our nation’s evolving public health emergency and the closure of all SC public schools through at least the end of March, SC-SIC is offering the following guidance regarding the conducting of local School Improvement Council meetings during this time.

  • All face-to-face local School Improvement Council meetings or activities should be suspended through at least March 31.
  • If for some reason an SIC meeting must be conducted during this time frame, School Improvement Councils should hold them virtually or by conference call.
  • SICs should follow and adhere to any advisories, recommendations, or directives from their district, school board, or state/national authorities.

Please stay tuned for updates on the COVID-19 virus and related pronouncements.

Thank you. We wish you and yours all the best as we work through this unprecedented situation together.

Tom F. Hudson, SC-SIC Executive Director
Karen Utter, SC-SIC Associate Director
