The deadline to register for VirtualSDOC classes for the spring semester is December 10th.
The School District of Oconee County offers students in grades 7 through 12 access to virtual, asynchronous, high school credit-bearing courses facilitated by district teachers. Courses are offered during the fall and spring semesters as well as during the summer.
VirtualSDOC expands educational options for students who may want to graduate early, make room in their schedule to attend Hamilton Career and Technology Center dual enrollment classes, work a part-time job, catch up or get ahead on credits, or have a lighter course load during the school year.
As the district announced last week, the SC State Department of Education re-instituted the requirement of face masks for students and drivers** on buses. School districts were given until August 30th to be in compliance. The SCDE released a revised memo on Friday, August 26th, to clarify that districts shall implement disciplinary measures for not wearing the mask.
