Two Beaufort County schools have been named to the South Carolina School Improvement Council's 2014 Honor Roll for their efforts foster civic engagement in public education.
Okatie and Port Royal elementary schools' SICs will continue in the running for the SC-SIC's annual Dick and Tunky Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence.
"Successful schools all have parental support as a key part of their foundations," said Superintendent Jeff Moss in a statement. "To have not just one, but two of the top seven 2014 SICs in the state coming from our district is just terrific."
"In the past school year, these School Improvement Councils demonstrated their hard work and dedication to building active parent and community involvement in the lives of their schools," said SC-SIC Board of Trustees Chair Ellen M. Still in a statement. "The contributions made by South Carolina's SICs and their volunteer members are essential to the health and well-being of school and student success."
