Overview

Laurens County School District 55 realizes that not all students learn in the same way, nor do all learners experience success in what we have come to know as a traditional classroom setting.  There are several options available to students in the district.  



Twilight School for Credit Recovery

over 3 years ago

LDHS offers Twilight School that meets from 3:45 until 5:15 p.m. on Monday through Thursday. Students may recover lost course credits in English, math, science, and social studies by using computer software.  the time spent in Credit Recovery depends on the student's work ethic and mastery of lessons that are determined by his score on a pre-test in the subject area.  Once the student passes the post-test, the failing grade may be raised to a 70 in the student's course history. 

Contact Mrs. Sonya Bryant, LDHS Principal, at 864-682-3151 for additional information.

Laurens County Adult Education allows students age 17 and older to earn GED credentials.  Operating out of the Laurens County Higher Education Center on Medical Ridge Road between Laurens and Clinton, the program offers classes in several convenient locations throughout the district.  Morning and evening classes are available and depending on the demand, Saturday classes may also be offered.

Family Literacy

over 3 years ago

 

Teen parents having difficulty attending school due to lack of child care may benefit from the Laurens County Family Literacy Program. Some of the components of the program include child literacy, parenting classes, home visits, and a GED program.  

Family Literacy meets at the Church Street location of Laurens County Adult Education. Classes meet Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.  Child care is provided.  Students need to be at least 17 years of age to participate.  In rare circumstances, a 16-year old who is very close to their 17th birthday may possibly be admitted into the program.  Admittance of 16-year old students requires the approval of the district superintendent and the director of Laurens County Adult Education.    

Any student from Laurens District 55 High School who needs to attend family literacy should contact their guidance counselor.  Non-LDHS students may register at the Church Street location.  Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent present at the time of registration.
