The Luke Bryan Farm Tour concert will be held in the Sandy Run Community on October 5, 2016. This event usually brings increased traffic volume throughout the county, especially in and around the Sandy Run K8 attendance zone. To ensure that our students and staff return from school safely, the dismissal schedules for October 4 and October 5, 2016 are being modified.

·         Tuesday, October 4 will become a normal dismissal day. St Matthews K8 and Sandy Run K8 students will be dismissed at the 3:00pmas normal. Calhoun County High School students will be dismissed at 3:15pm.

·         Wednesday, October 5 will become an early release day. St Matthews K8 and Sandy Run K8 students will dismiss at 12:00 pm. Calhoun County High School students will dismiss at 12:30pm.

·       Finally, there must be a change to the schedule for October 25, 2016. Schools were closed on September 2, 2016, because of the dangerous weather conditions produced by Tropical Storm Hermine. October 25, the previously designated make-up day, will become a regular school day for students and staff. Students will be dismissed at the regularly scheduled time on Staff Development Tuesday. Students at St Matthews K8 and Sandy Run K8 Schools will be dismissed at 2:00pm and Calhoun County High School students will be dismissed at 2:30pm. This day will also be used as report card pick-up day at each of the schools. Parents are welcomed to pick-up report cards from 3:00pm until 6:00pm on October 25, 2016.

2017 Superintendent of the Year

Welcome to our website.  Calhoun County Public Schools are located in St. Matthews, South Carolina.  We pride ourselves as a "Children First" school district.  The teachers and staff work well together to ensure "Teaching and Learning" is the core and focus of the service we provide to our students and their parents.

During each of the past three school years, our school district has received excellent ratings on the State Report Card.  We are proud of our schools and appreciate your interest in them as well.  We believe that a high quality of education is provided to the students attending the schools in our district.  Each of our teachers meet the 100% highly qualified standard set by the State Board of Education.  They do an excellent job of teaching and holding students accountable for learning.

We are also proud to report that we are moving forward with digital devices for our teachers and students in grades 3-12.  It is important that students experience the current world of technology prior to leaving school.  This world of smart devices is their future and we must equip them with this knowledge prior to entering colleges and careers.  These chrome books will roll out to students in January 2016.

We have designed a generic Back 2 School page just for parents.  We also invite you to browse our web page for other interest.  We are always looking for ways to improve the page and welcome your suggestions.  I also invite you to visit any of the district schools or their web sites for information.  Our aim is to serve.  Thanks for visiting with us!

What Does Education Mean to You?

In 2010, a group of Superintendents in South Carolina joined together to develop a vision for our schools. As educators, our primary focus is always the children and giving them the tools they need to become responsible, productive citizens. We encourage all of you to visit the website (www.oureducationvision.com) to learn more about the vision and our key values and beliefs.
