July 13, 2020 - Board of Education Amends 2020-2021 School Calendar

The Dorchester County Board of Education today unanimously agreed to amend the 2020-2021 school calendar, moving the first day of school for all students to Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

This adjustment allows the district and families more time to prepare for the challenges presented by virtual learning, particularly in the areas of electronic device preparation, distribution, and training on the use of the new learning platform for teachers, students, as well as parents.

Newly-hired teachers will arrive on August 17 and returning teachers will report on August 24, as originally scheduled.

Superintendent of Schools Dave Bromwell said, “As we start the most unusual school year ever in Dorchester County, it’s important that we take every step we can to ensure success among our staff, students, and families while keeping everyone safe.”
