30 FOR 30 READING INITIATIVE


District 55 has implemented the 30 FOR 30 READING INITIATIVE this year.  Every student spends 30 minutes of uninterrupted time reading each day at school.  

Parents are asked to support this initiative and to expand it into the home.  Every student should spend at least 30 minutes reading at home at least five of seven nights per week.  

Make it a household tradition - - turn off the electronics, grab a book or magazine, find a comfortable place and escape to the world of reading!  You won't be disappointed!

THE DISTRICT OFFICE HAS MOVED - The District 55 Administrative Office is now located at 301 Hillcrest Drive in Laurens.  The West Main Street location is no longer in operation.  The phone number remains the same, 864-984-3568. 

When visiting the Hillcrest Drive office, you will need to use the entrance that faces the shopping center (Roses Department Store, Dollar General, Sr. Garcia, etc.) Please check in at the reception desk and you will be directed from there.   

This is a big transition for our district and we apologize if you have endured any inconvenience during the move.  We look forward to great things ahead! 

 

Located in the heart of beautiful Laurens County, Laurens School District 55 has its administrative offices at 301 Hillcrest Drive in Laurens, South Carolina.  Nestled between Greenville, Spartanburg, and Columbia, the area provides peaceful living combined with convenient access to some of the state's most important metropolitan centers, its beaches, or the mountains.

Laurens County School District 55 strives to be a system of excellence and equity in educational practices for each learner.  You can be assured that your child will be attending a progressive school system whose educational programs are designed to meet a wide variety of interests, ability levels, and cultural backgrounds.  

Enrolling your child in the school system here is a relatively simple matter.  You should have signed a statement of release in the school district from which you have moved.  This enables District 55 to receive a copy of your child's records from that school system.  If you did not do this before relocating, someone at the school to which your child is assigned in District 55 will be glad to assist you.  Take your child's previous report cards and other school records that you may have with you. 

All children entering school in this state must meet South Carolina immunization requirements.  These should be in your child's records from his/her previous school.  If you are moving from another state, a copy of a state issued birth certificate (not a hospital birth form) is required.  Please be mindful that the transfer of your child should be as expedient as possible to ensure the continuity of his/her learning process and to conform to the South Carolina attendance requirements.
