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
