Anderson School District Five’s Special Education Department is pleased to announce that the T L Hanna High School student operated school enterprise known as the “Fizzer Factory” has been chosen to participate in the Transition Alliance of South Carolina (TASC) statewide conference in November of 2019. The students and teacher involved with the program will be sharing the processes they use in the Fizzer Factory and the learning targets they have been working toward through their involvement with the Fizzer Factory. Teachers and administrators from around the state will be able to hear about the exciting things taking place in the Hanna program. The students will have an opportunity to showcase and sell their products at the conference. We are proud of this group and support their efforts!
Anderson Five now offers the South Carolina High School Credential to 2018-2019 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.
