Out of concern for the health of all our students, we are asking parents to read this guide to the flu.
Each year, SC schools receive a state and a federal report card. In October, we received an “A” on our federal report card. This week, we learned that Cowpens Elementary School received an EXCELLENT on our state report card. In addition, because of tremendous progress by our students, we also received an EXCELLENT growth rating!
For placing among the highest performing Title I schools, Cowpens Elementary was recognized as a Reward School for Performance. Only 159 elementary schools out of 626 received this distinction. Cowpens Elementary was also recognized as a Title I Reward School for Progress for substantial academic gains from one school year to the next. This honor goes to the top 10% of Title I schools statewide. Only 26 schools made this list with Cowpens being the only one in Spartanburg County.
