Superintendent's Message

    We've wrapped up a very productive 2018-19 school year.
    We opened two new schools this past fall, Riverbank Elementary and the Lexington Two Innovation Center, both equipped with state-of-the-art academic spaces and the latest building safety features. We opened the new athletics arena at Brookland-Cayce High, as well as the renovated auditorium there.
    We had 24 high school students graduate as part of our Early College program with Midlands Tech, including twelve who received Associate in Arts diplomas, and two who received a second diploma, an Associate in Science. All of those students earned a minimum 62 college credits and took 20-plus college courses. Our dual enrollment and AP courses continue to draw high achievers as well. Along with the 15 professional certifications available through our Innovation Center, Lexington Two graduates are entering college and career with a head start on many of their peers.
    Lexington Two earned the distinction this year of being one of only two traditional public school districts in South Carolina -- and among only 373 across the US and Canada -- to be honored by the College Board with placement on the 9th Annual AP District Honor Roll. Seven of our 11 elementary and middle schools earned Excellent or Good ratings in the latest school report cards. And we earned top scores on our five-year accreditation through AdvancED, scoring 376 out of a possible 400 for our data-driven plans for continuous improvement and achievement in student learning.
    I am grateful to those who contribute every day to our students’ successes -- parents who entrust us with their children; Lexington County businesses, churches and community groups that invest in our schools; citizens and civic leaders who have made building new facilities possible; volunteers who share with us their time and talents; and educators who help students dream and achieve.
   We are looking forward to the new 2019-20 academic year, which begins Monday, August 19. In the meantime, encourage your kids to read (watch our social media for information on Busbee's Summer at the Park reading events), and have a safe and relaxing summer.
