ENGAGE South Carolina initiated for help navigating COVID-19
LANDRUM—A new program is available in South Carolina for students who need help navigating the challenges of COVID-19.
The ENGAGE South Carolina program will give students K-12 who have fully or partially disengaged from their education due to COVI-19 with a personal coach to help students. The program is aimed at helping students plans for academic success, answer questions about technology and curriculum, monitor the student’s pace and progress throughout the school year and to build bridges to additional community support programs.
South Carolina State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman announced the new program this week.
“Throughout the pandemic, the lives of so many of our students and their families have been upended, and understandably many students have struggled with this transition,” Spearman said. “ENGAGE South Carolina is designed to support these learners and help ensure they stay on track for graduation and beyond.”
ENGAGE South Carolina is a partnership between the South Carolina Department of Education and Graduation Alliance. All South Carolina schools are able to opt-in to the program at no cost to them or the families.
