Principal's Message

Good afternoon, 

As Fall arrives and the weather begins to cool and football games are playing in stadiums around our district and state, I hope that everyone has had a great beginning to our 2018-19 school year!  The first quarter of school will soon be complete and report cards will be printed and sent home.  Our students have been working diligently this quarter to learn and master the South Carolina State Standards and the necessary skills to be college and career ready by the time they graduate from high school. 

The School District of Pickens County is wrapping up its fifth year of accreditation and is working on submitting feedback for our next five-year accreditation phase. All schools in the county receive accreditation from AdvancED, an accrediting agency that conducts rigorous, on-site reviews of a variety of educational institutions in South Carolina, the nation, and world. 

A part of our accreditation process is the gathering of feedback on the culture and climate of our schools through a quick survey.  I ask that each of our families take a few minutes to complete the survey through the link below.  The feedback Dacusville Middle School receives from this survey will be used to conduct continuous improvement and will be included in our AdvancEd report.

I thank you all for your participation in our reaccreditation process and I appreciate your part in making our school, a school of distinction.
