WILLISTON, S.C. (WIS) - South Carolina Superintendent of Education Ellen Weaver announced the release of the 2023 School Report Card.

The 2023 School Report Card was released by the S.C. Department of Education (SCDE) and the S.C. Education Oversight Committee (EOC) and reflected the results of the 2022-2023 school year.

According to the the report card, schools statewide saw a 2% increase from the previous year in Excellent ratings, the highest rating in the state’s education accountability system. That brings this year’s total to 22.5% of schools rated as Excellent.

Half of all students in S.C. public schools were enrolled in a school with an Excellent or Good rating.

“While SCDE and EOC officials are encouraged to see continued progression from schools that rebounded from the challenges brought on by the pandemic, specifically citing the gains in English Language Arts scores, they stress that there is much work ahead for all students,” said SCDE.

The report card noted more than half of S.C. students aren’t meeting grade level standards in math as well as a disconnect between the state’s 84% high school graduation rate, but only 29% of students were college and career-ready.
