Learn, Evaluate, Analyze, and Prepare (LEAP) days are underway this week for students in the Marlboro County School District.
Superintendent Dr. Gregory McCord said LEAP days have gone pretty well.
LEAP days were made available for all students in the district. The state paid for grades K-8 while the district used funds from the CARES Act to pay for grades 9-12.
McCord said they averaged 500 students a day in all of the schools.
“It is pretty consistent with what we thought it would look like,” he said.
Students were broken down by the alphabet in some schools and grade levels in other schools.
The school year will officially begin on Sept. 2. The model used for LEAP days will be used. Students will be staggered in for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Parents still need to register for the school year. The goal is to get as many registered before the first of school so you can plan accordingly. About 3,000 students have registered.
