CCEF presents check for $45,018 to help with special grants

The Cherokee County Educational Foundation Board presented Dr. Brian Hightower, CCSD Superintendent and Kyla Cromer, CCSD School Board Chair with a check for $45,018 to help with special grants in the district. These monies will be used for several special grant programs including graduation coaching assistance for high school seniors with special needs, and Course Extension opportunities.

Course Extension is a pilot program in the school district that allows students that did not pass a class, but received an average between 65-69 to enroll in a 10 hour intensive unit recovery. If the student earns a minimum of an 80 on their assignments and tests in that unit, their 65-69 is replaced with a 70 average and allows them to regain the course credit without great expense or too much time.
