The 2020 coronavirus pandemic has made social distancing essential, thus prohibiting in-person SIC training at the district and school levels. SC-SIC has developed and is now offering “SIC Basics” training for districts in a virtual format.

This training is primarily intended for new SIC members but is also an ideal refresher for longer-serving members. The session provides an overview of SIC legislative mandates, history, membership requirements, SC-SIC support and resources, and explains the primary roles and responsibilities of SICs and their members as they work together to identify and set goals to help their local schools.

Contact your SIC District Contact to arrange a virtual "SIC Basics" training!

SICs can function even during social distancing. You can still hold parent, teacher, and student (high school) elections using electronic/low tech methods. You can still appoint community members by email or phone. Ex-Officio members can be notified by email, text, or phone. SICs can hold virtual (and/or phone) meetings monthly. Learn how, and get tips, from this video on YouTube!   Get the handout here.

For School Improvement Councils and members who wish to quickly refresh their operational knowledge of SICs, the SC School Improvement Council has developed three (3) 20-minute online training videos. Produced pre-pandemic, these videos can be viewed individually or as part of a local SIC meeting, and cover information from “This Is Your SIC – A Handbook for Effectiveness.”
