On Tuesday, May 28, 2019, Governor Henry McMaster signed into the law the 2019-2020 budget, which contains a proviso that eliminates social studies state assessment in grades 5 and 7. The 11th grade US History/Constitution End of Course exam will continue to be administered.
As you end the school year, the SCCSS would like for all teachers to make note about any changes in schools with the absence of state testing at the elementary and middle levels in the 2019-2020 academic year.
SCCSS will continue to advocate for equitable instructional time and access to professional development and resources so that teachers can provide quality social studies instruction to all students in South Carolina!
