With Monday’s approval of 14 school district reopening plans, S.C. Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman has now approved plans for every state public school district.

The total of 81 approvals includes plans for the S.C. Governor's School for Science and Mathematics, the S.C. Governor's School for Arts and Humanities, the John De La Howe School of Agriculture, and the S.C. School for the Deaf and the Blind, according to a news release from the S.C. Department of Education.

“With reopening plans now approved, I am asking every South Carolinian to support their local school in the reopening process,” Spearman said in a news release. “Whether it is driving a neighbor's child to school, providing temporary childcare, supporting an educator, or simply wearing a face mask and practicing social distancing, every person in our state can help us get back to full face to face instruction as quickly and safely as possible.”

Richland School District Two was among the district plans approved Monday.

Reopening plans must meet criteria including both virtual and face-to-face instruction models.

Detailed information about approved plans is available online.
