    Anderson School District Five Special Education is pleased to be able to provide virtual services to students through the Anderson Five Virtual Academy.  Parents that chose the option of virtual schooling will find a blend of direct instruction and virtual curriculum materials effective in meeting the needs of students.

    The curriculum materials of Calvert, Edmentum and Acellus are used in the Virtual Academy as students complete virtual lessons.

    Each student is assigned a case manager that works with the child on IEP goals to meet his/her needs in an individualized manner. 

    It is exciting to be part of a district that is setting the trend in South Carolina in terms of technology and virtual learning experiences. 

     

     

      

      

     

    Anderson Five now offers the South Carolina High School Credential to

    2020-2021 9th grade students.

    South Carolina High School Credential

     

    South Carolina has roughly 100,000 students with disabilities serviced under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), of which the majority are able to earn a State high school diploma. Given the varying levels of student achievement, some students are unable to complete this required high school coursework. As a result, there is a need to provide an alternative option for students with disabilities to demonstrate their ability to transition into the work community. The uniform state-recognized SC High School Credential will be aligned with the State's Profile of the South Carolina Graduate and to a newly created course of study for these students with disabilities whose Individualized Education Program (IEP) team determines this course of study is appropriate.

    The purpose of the SC High School Credential is to provide equitable job-readiness opportunities for these students throughout the state, ensure they have evidence of employability skills, and honor the work they have undertaken in our public schools.
