CCSD Publishes Annual Report of District Progress

Front cover of CCSD’s Annual Report of District Progress

The Cherokee County School District has published its Annual Report of District Progress, which offers the community a snapshot of successes over the past year.

“We are focused on accountability and transparency in our operations, and this report is another way we show our community how we’re delivering on the promises of our Strategic Plan,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “The Annual Report provides important information in an easy-read format so our community can see the return on its investment: more and better prepared graduates headed to college and careers.”

This year’s Annual Report design puts those graduates front and center, with a “report card” for the Class of 2017 on the front cover. The four-page publication, which is posted online here, also highlights CCSD’s outstanding performance above State and National levels on various performance- and survey-based metrics.

“We appreciate the leadership of our School Board and the support of our community in fulfilling our mission of ‘Educating the Emerging Generation,’” Dr. Hightower said. “We could not achieve this level of success without everyone working together – from students and their families to our employees to our partners and volunteers — and we are very grateful to all of you.”

The Cherokee County School District has published its Annual Report of District Progress, which provides a yearly snapshot of accountability-based performance results and accomplishments.

“Our outstanding performance is a testament to the continuing effort of our teachers, administrators and support staff, who work tirelessly to ensure each student is as successful as possible,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “Additionally, we must acknowledge the significant contributions of our extended community — we would be unable to accomplish CCSD’s mission without the support of volunteers, families and business partners!”

The Annual Report features strong representation of CCSD’s continued excellence organized through the following themes:
• “Educating the Emerging Generation”
• “Raising the Bar”
• “Always Improving”
• “Engaging Community”

It also showcases evidence that CCSD is performing well above its peers at both State and National levels using performance- and survey-based metrics:
• Student Achievement Measures;
• College Readiness Indicators;
• Fiscal Responsibility Indexes;
• Student Growth Measures;
• Community Support Indicators; and,
• General Demographic Profiles.

The Annual Report has been newly redesigned to serve as a foldable brochure for presentations or a poster for display purposes. The redesign placed a greater emphasis on infographics and streamlined text to increase user-friendliness.

“We hope you enjoy reading this year’s Annual Report,” Dr. Hightower said. “We think all of our stakeholders will be proud to call their own.”
