Wish Fort Mill School District had a true 21st-century learning alternative for our kids?
Sign this petition to express your support to build a new 21st Century alternative learning program within FMSD now.
** GOAL: we have 37 of 200 signatures to form 501(c)3 **
Many of us moved to Fort Mill for the quality of life and great schools. Our kids graduate with some of the highest test scores in the country.
But test scores are no longer the key to success for a happy, healthy, thriving adult. In fact, it's just the opposite.
Our kids need to be able to think critically, communicate, and collaborate with each other, and find creative solutions to complex problems. These skills are outlined in the Profile of the SC Graduate:
But the FMSD has failed to prioritize these 21st Century skills in our curriculum and school culture the way districts around us like Lex 1, RHSD, Clover and, CMS have. This puts our kids at an alarming disadvantage for career preparedness and they are sick with stress and anxiety under the pressures to perform on standardized tests that have nothing to do with creating a thriving adult in the 21 st Century.
Here’s the good news.
We can change this! Yes… it’s our job as tax paying citizens to hold our district and school board accountable for providing the RIGHT education for our kids.
So what can you do?
1. Sign this petition for a Holistic/21st Century learning option in the FMSD
2. Email the petition to every parent you know (https://www.fortmillcommunityadvocates.com/petition)
As soon as we reach 200 signatures, we will be able to form our non-profit and begin raising donations in order to make this vision real.
