In 2014, the U.S. Department of Education recognized SCCSD as one of the original Future Ready Schools® (FRS) districts for its preliminary work leveraging technology to enhance student learning. During the past three years alone, the district increased its four-year high school graduation rate from 87.19 percent to 87.5 percent; implemented a staterecognized one-to-one student-to-device initiative at the high school level; expanded multiple science, technology, engineering, math (STEM), and career-focused program offerings; and developed seventeen school construction projects currently being implemented. As the district continues to expand its transformation efforts, SCCSD remains committed to providing relevant, rigorous, and innovative academic experiences to every student in the district.
