BCSD will return to traditional, in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year

Published Friday, May 28, 2021

It is with much excitement that Berkeley County School District (BCSD) announces a complete return to traditional, in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year.

This planned move to re-unite our community of learners was not decided in haste. The decision comes after weeks of discussion and the guidance of local, state and national health care professionals. 

The best place to ignite the passion of learners is within a school setting, with all of its supports in place. Rarely can one argue against that. In our schools is where BCSD teachers and support staff plan to make a positive difference and help our students mold a future we dare to imagine. 

The COVID-19 pandemic brought so much hurt to communities in our area and across our great nation, but it also forced us to adapt, problem-solve and collaborate. As a result, we passionately believe Berkeley County’s students and teachers will return to classrooms and unite in a way that we have never witnessed. 

For those students unable to return to a traditional classroom, alternative learning opportunities in place prior to the COVID-19 pandemic are the only options available. Normal (pre-pandemic) eligibility criteria will apply. Parents/guardians of those students should contact their child’s school during normal business hours. 

Additional information on applying for distance, online and virtual education opportunities can be found in our board policy on Distance, Online and Virtual Education

Again, BCSD plans a full return to traditional, in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year.
