Philosophy of the Aiken County Public School District page The purpose of the Aiken County Public School District page is to provide important and timely information about our district to parents and the community. Facebook can be a valuable resource for disseminating vital information and announcements (such as school closings), but it is only a supplement to other channels of communication. Our page is not a moderated open forum, nor is it intended to be. We cannot always respond to specific questions or comments, although we welcome general comments and requests for clarification that would be of interest to all parents. If you have a question or comment regarding a particular school or student, please contact your child’s school directly. Negative comments identifying students and personal attacks of any nature against students, staff members, or administrators will not be allowed. Vulgar and abusive comments will be removed, and will result in sender(s) being blocked if continued, as will excessive comments from any individual(s) who attempt to utilize this medium personally in a manner that interferes with the site’s communication function.

Mission: The mission of Aiken County Public Schools, the emerging premier school district, is to cultivate future-ready students to serve our evolving community and world through an innovative, literacy-focused school system distinguished by rigorous, personalized learning opportunities; highly effective, service-driven professionals; and mutually-beneficial partnerships. An Area of Special Academic Emphasis: Reading achievement at all grade levels (K-12), with special emphasis on direct reading instruction in grades K-3. Literacy Vision: Aiken County Public Schools demonstrates an unwavering commitment of the educational community to embrace their responsibility for ensuring that each student at any level becomes a successful reader and writer. Fundamental Values The Aiken County Public School District will be known for • Safe learning environments where every student has the opportunity to achieve developmental outcomes at the highest potential, • Highly qualified educators and competent support persons who can orchestrate and facilitate exceptional learning outcomes at every level and who continue to grow personally and professionally throughout their careers, • Facilities that nurture effective learning practices for all students, • A transportation system that is safe, efficient, and accessible to all students, • Appropriate use of technology to further learning and to make information management more productive, and, • An organizational culture that encourages integrity, collegiality, high expectations for student success, student, parental and community engagement, and continuous improvement.
