Community Meetings Scheduled Concerning District Facilities

A series of community meetings will be held over the next several weeks as part of the district's 10-year facilities planning for future district construction.  A timeline for addressing needs identified by stakeholders will be shared to include priority projects funding by the 1-cent sales tax approved in November 2014. Of the $14M we are projected to receive by the penny sales tax, 5.5M will be held for our portion of the new career center, which is currently in the design phase with identified programs; leaving close to 8.5M for needed projects. Members of the community are invited to attend any informational meeting. Information will be shared on student enrollment trends, economic trends, staff and community survey results, Title IX issues, instructional and athletic needs, and the challenges associated with the current grade span at the elementary level. The meeting schedule can found here.   Facilities Plan Resources

Registration for 5K students will be held on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Children who will be five years old on or before September 1, 2016 are eligible to enroll. Registrations will be held at the school in the attendance area where you reside. The elementary schools in our district are La France Elementary, Mount Lebanon Elementary, Pendleton Elementary and Townville Elementary. If your child currently attends 4K in Anderson School District Four, it is not necessary to register him/her for 5K. However, all students who attend Head Start in Anderson School District Four must register. Parents do not need to bring their child to registration.

Parents of both 4K and 5K students should bring the child’s state-issued birth certificate (not the birth certificate issued by the hospital) and updated immunization record to the registration. In addition, a copy of the child’s social security card is requested. Parents are also required to bring a picture ID, which can include driver’s license, work identification, etc., and two proofs of residency. The two proofs of residency can include utility bill, rent receipt, mortgage statement or property tax statement, but all documents must show a current address.
