Proviso 1A.83. of the 2019-20 General Appropriation bill, H.4000, as recommended by the Conference Committee on May 20, 2019 and adopted by the House and Senate, requires the Education Oversight Committee (EOC) to oversee implementation of the second year of a pilot program for alternative methods of instruction for school make-up days. The eLearning pilot will expand from the original five districts that participated in school year 2018-19 (Anderson 5; Kershaw; Pickens; Spartanburg 1 and Spartanburg 7), which are referred to as Cohort 1, to an additional five to ten districts that will comprise Cohort 2.
What is an eLearning Day?

- Friday, October 25, 2019
