Fort Mill Sees Gains in SC Ready Scores
Data released by the South Carolina Department of Education shows the Fort Mill School District saw gains in almost every grade level for students testing at the Meets or Exceeds Expectation mark on the SC READY state assessment tests.
The district’s scores far exceed the state-wide average in all grades. The data shows tremendous gains in ELA with the district and every school exceeding pre-pandemic levels from the 2018-19 school year. The district also saw gains in math and science and continues working to meet the pre-pandemic levels.
The South Carolina College- and Career-Ready Assessments (SC READY) program is a statewide assessment in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics for students in grades 3–8. Beginning with the 2022–2023 school year science was administered to students in grades 4 and 6 via SCREADY.
“We are very proud of the work being done by our teachers and staff in the district,” said Superintendent Dr. Chuck Epps. “This data shows that the district has made great strides in all areas and we will continue our efforts to provide a quality education for all students.”
