The administration is not pro active with recognizing learning disabilities. They do not push the NCLB act. You have as a parent have to be on top of the school to be sure that your child is not left behind or he/she will be without your intervention.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in Writing, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
